How to Make a Living Wreath

Here's something I have been wanting to try for a while...making a wreath from growing plants! I have even been eyeing several versions online. Some used succulents but I wanted something with more blooms. And a few used impatiens...lovely, but my yard is not shady enough. Then I was wandering around the nursery and had an epiphany!

DIY Mini Herb Garden with Chalkboard Plant Markers

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Mini Herb Garden with DIY Chalkboard Plant MarkersSummer will be here before you know it and one of the things I love about it is being able to cook with fresh herbs! Sooo….. I decided that this year I would have my own little garden with all of my favorites! That way I don't have to make a run to the grocery store every time I need herbs. (I know…please don’t judge! ) And while I was at it, I thought I would make it cute and fun and use some more of my favorites…galvanized goodies and chalkboard touches!

The Scoop #222

Hi everyone and welcome back to The Scoop! We've had a strange weather week here....from fall-like temperatures to summer and back! But I have continued working on getting the patio set up for my favorite pastime...bird watching while drinking coffee! As soon as I have it ready, I will share. One of my favorites, my SHABBY PICNIC BASKET PLANTER...will be making its return for yet another year! In the meantime, I can't wait to see what you have to share!
