Mason Jar Herb Garden

Mason Jar Herb Garden
Morning, everyone! Claire here, with a weekend project that’s perfect for all of you who are gearing up for lots of holiday cooking. Remember two weeks ago when I asked for your opinion on which hanging herb garden you liked best?

Spring Fever After a couple of stuttering false starts, it’s clear that Spring is just around the corner and Harry and I are alternating between indoors and outdoors at the drop of a hat. Thank heaven for wipe-clean wood flooring. When the sap is rising and the buds are bursting into colour, it makes me come over all green-fingered, so this week we’ve been experimenting with growing cress, the ultimate in instant-gratification gardening. before & after: cinder block planter bar I have a soft spot in my heart for cinder blocks — I consider them the closest thing to Legos for adults, and I get really excited when people use them in cool ways. I’ve seen many cinder block planters, which is understandable: The combination of gray cement and green herbs and succulents is lovely. Inspired by a cinder block planter project she saw on Apartment Therapy, Kristin decided to expand on the idea and incorporate more salvaged elements to create an outdoor bar.

Feng Shui: Fix the Flow of Wealth in Your Home and Office We love a fresh start. That’s why we’ll take as many new year’s celebrations as we can get. And today, there’s another one: Chinese or Lunar New Year. Lunar New Year is the most important holiday in Asian cultures. When I was little, my mom told me that it was important to act on Chinese New Year how you wanted the whole year to be.
