Each year when summer rolls around, breathing new life into the foliage that grows so abundantly outdoors, I begin to desire the same kind of refresh for my own space. Read More

Gorgeous idea! Love the glasses makeover - smart and creative. I have a small succulent garden at home and I think succulents are wonderful plants. Such design would really refresh my home. Thank you for sharing!

What a great way to have plants in a little place. I've been looking for different ways to have plants in my apartment. I don't want something huge & this is perfect! :) Looks classy & cute!

Hey, You should add a bit of raw sugar to the recipe because salt tenda to dry out your hair with repeated use. Sugar helps boosts volume big time.

Bug Shield Lemon Eucalyptus Is Amazing if you’re looking for a natural insect repellent that can stand up to DEET. I have used this product and it works Great. Just a few sprays and bugs stay away for hours. www.naturesbugshield.com

this came at such a good time! I'm constantly on my balcony especially at night, so I've been on the look out for citronella candles, so stoked to try these! www.paigesofnothing.blogspot.com

I am in the process of creating this, what I am thinking is putting small handles on the jar's and hanging them off a decorative metal coat rack mounted in front of my kitchen window with enough space in between for the blinds to function. I plan on drilling a small hole in the bottom of each of my 5 jars, being as they hang over the sink if water drips out It will not be an issue. I will use and inch of gravel to allow water through with out allowing soil or roots to escape the hole. My only concern with this design is allowing direct sunlight onto the soil in such a small container, will this in effect cook the roots, killing the plant?

The herb garden using a non-draining material will not work in the long run. Herbs typically need lots of light and drainage - most are from the Mediterranean region or like that kind of environment (rosemary, oregano) and thrive best with direct sunlight and lots of drainage. While the mason jars are cute, the plants won't last long or thrive. A second option is to harvest your plants from outside (plant in free-draining potting soil in a pot with a hole in direct sunlight, water daily) and put the cut herbs in cute labeled mason jars with water in it. This will ensure the longevity of the plant. However, if it's just for aesthetics - go for it. Who doesn't like cute stuff? For those of you who have green algae - it's natural. If you were doing this for a terrarium and using other plant material (ferns, plants that prefer low light), I would add an inch or so of pebbles and mix in activated charcoal to reduce algae production. It doesn't make your herbs bad for you - it just means it has a lot of water which can lead to root rot. Which in turn, kills the plant. Signed, a horticulturalist.

Thank you for sharing these tips. Gardening can be a good way to relax or release stress. Small space gardening is now being practiced by many in urban areas. By the way, cute chicks you got there!

I love the idea of spring cleaning. A time to open the windows, dust off winter, and shake out the chill. Read More

Roberta Floyd -Nov 13, 2015, 10:29AM
Using natural cleaners is a always the best choice! I have very few toxic cleaners at home that I still use. I love the recipes that you suggest trying! I love cleaning with lemon and baking soda, so I'll try them! :) Thanks for sharing! :)
kelli -Nov 06, 2015, 12:33PM
Hey Jeff, perhaps your comments are better suited to a chemical laden website. Obviously they mean nothing here. Go troll somewhere else and let us who care about the world make our own cleaners!! :)

So often it’s convenience that drives us to make non-eco-friendly decisions.Read More

That's a lovely idea! And the tutorial's very simple. I changed my job recently and now I'm able to bring food from home and I need to carry my own knife, fork and spoon, so this idea came right on time for me. I'm trying to reduce my family's waste with some simple steps and this idea will be a part of the whole process. I have few old tablecloths in beautiful colors that are great to be recycled into utensil carriers. Thank you for the inspiration!
Amanda -Apr 16, 2015, 3:09PM
Such a good idea... so simple, yet I haven't done it yet and I KNOW I waste plastic utensils at work. Thanks for the inspiration! www.radiatetheday.blogspot.com

Did this last year and now have beautiful blooms in my room! Just follow the steps exactly

It's great idea :D I made already two homemade papers so I'll try with seeds. I tried to place in mine dry flowers, but the paper was stained by them in yellow (can I say that? English isn't my native language D:). I will try again! https://www.etsy.com/shop/wildcity
