Going green....

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
As you can see from my inspiration book pages, I have been feeling like I need a dose of green. The pages reflect my yearning for plants and growth. They are also a bit earthy and gritty. Just how I've been feeling.


After going to a local nursery, Chloe and I decided to get our hands dirty and plant a window herb garden in the kitchen in some of my tea cups. Love how they smell!

Also got these adorable little pink carnations and put them in one of my favorite mugs for the kitchen table.

Happy St. Patty's Day! I love herb gardens too. I just planted one from seeds and I hope they can get a start in my window since it is still way too cold for them here. Have a great week,

Mmmmmm. I can smell the fragrant herbs through the computer! What a great idea. Very "Springy"! I might have to do that with Julian.

Kari,
I love what you and Chloe did to do your bit at going green! I went outside to this afternoon and found a happy accident, in last years tabletop herb garden bloomed a bunch of fresh chives!

It's a bit late but Happy St. Paddy's Day! I hadn't really thought about an indoor herb garden but it's a great idea. My garden outside is always being nibbled on by little critters. Enjoy!

I am so happy for you with publishing the book. You just showed that anyone can do it if they set their mind to it.
