Do You Have the Eye?

Lovely rose arbor, below, yes? It came from a dumpster.
Susanne Hudson saw a commercial awning tossed into a dumpster. She called the building's owner immediately, asking if she could have the discarded awning.
Next, she called a fence company to place 8' fence posts.
The awning was placed forming a complete 1/2 round instead of its intended 1/4 round.
Voila...rose arbor with hanging lanterns.

Pic taken 2 weekends ago. I've been in Monet's garden and know Susanne's rose arbor is little different from his in drama. What could be better? Do you have the eye?

Recycling is great way to make something for nothing or almost nothing.

Great piece of re-claim.

I know you occasionally feature parts of Susanne Hudson's garden, she definitely has the eye

I think I do; but haven't gone dumpster diving lately. Must do so. GREAT arbor...

Wow! I love it and to think she found it in a dumpster.
Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog.

Hope you have a great weekend,

Very Clever... and looks fabulous!

I have a little bit of an eye, but nope... I'm pretty sure a discarded awning wouldn't look like that by my doing ever!
