Going GREEN this Spring!
Written by on Sunday, March 13th, 2016

  With Spring around the corner, I always find myself shopping for new herb plants.

While in the store, it suddenly dawned on me that they are not only edible and delicious, but also fragrant & beautiful!

Plus, they’re green… perfect for St. Patrick’s Day too! LOL

But once I found this adorable tin HERBS sign,

there was no turning back…

I was inspired to create a thrifty & eco-friendly decoration for my Spring fireplace!

And because of the purple touches in this sign, a few purple flowers also made their way home.

At home, I looked around my own garden to see what else

might look nice in this Spring Green display.

I gathered up an old watering can & 2 of stone bunnies and was super happy

that Mother Nature had coated all 3 in a nice patina!

You’ll probably recognize these other accessories (from previous years):

All I purchased (besides my plants @ 4 for $10) were the suction cups ($2) and $5.00 worth of purple ribbon.

And the best part is… afterwards, almost every item will bring more & lasting enjoyment outside.

So, I hope this eco-friendly & tasty herb garden inspires you to consider “Going Green” too,

because I think you’ll especially like the wonderful fragrance it creates in your home!
