Wheelbarrow with mixed planting of gasterias and haworthias.

Creative Indoor Herb Gardens

Herb gardens are so pretty, a great way to add to color and fragrance to your home. How convenient is it just snip a few herbs while cooking dinner!

Below are some creative containers to plant your herbs and plants in.

I love this idea of using veggie cans. Cheap, yet look so cute on the table or in the window! If you don’t like the tin color, these would be easy to spray paint and add more color!

And who doesn’t love mason jars? I can’t decide which is my favorite!

 

For those of you that like your containers to be a little more girly. This is for you! So sweet and delicate!

We would love to see your container herb garden!

Have an awesome day!

Creative Tea Cups

I love to share creative ideas and different ways to use the items found in the store. I wished I had more time to be this creative!!

Today we’re talking about tea cups. So small and delicate, but yet so beautiful!!

What better way to use Grandma’s tea cups and keep them close to you?

This is such a sweet idea for a lamp. Pinterest has many more lamps made out of tea cups.

Mason Jar Gift Ideas

Vintage Mason Jars can be used for so much more than vases. Don’t get me wrong, I love to use them as vases.

Here are some adorable ideas to create gifts with vintage mason jars. If you don’t have time to create a mix in the jars, just fill them with colorful candies, popcorn, snack mix, or even small toiletries.
