Ready for Spring

 Two days in a row of spring like weather. Can I get a "HOLLA"?

Spring represents so many things to me. Freshness, newness, green, joy...and the list goes on and on.

I am excited to be getting ready to freshen up my house and our yard (okay only marginally excited about the latter...I loathe yard work). I am excited to start getting our garden ready. I even have a special garden project for our Little Men this year, which I will share soon.

As I was mentally getting ready for spring and reminiscing I remembered this project...

 This was one of my FAVORITE projects last year. It was simple, fast, and GORGEOUS. The herbs grew fabulously in my canning jars. I actually kept them inside on my kitchen window sill, a little piece of outside in.

I am going to redo these jars this year, in a color that actually coordinates with my kitchen. I am planning on doing some beautiful variations too. Wanna join me? Gather and save up your canning jars. Get ready to purchase your favorite herbs.

Look for a tutorial in the first week of April and we will make some fresh and lovely herb gardens together.

Every herb I've tried to grow, I've killed. I have a black thumb where a green one should be. ;)

That being said, I picked up new seed packets this year and love your jars, so I might give it another try.

I just bought the ocean blue colored paint to try the wreath. Maybe I'll have to try some jars, too!

Dude, I have the jars. Let's do it.

I will be checking in for your tips. I started some herbs in pots last year, and they died. :( I don't know what I'm doing wrong!
