Etceteras: yarn wrapped plant markers

Don’t you love the look and smell of fresh herbs growing in a kitchen window?

I haven’t planted my herb garden yet but in preparation, I made these plant marker flags.
I started with corn cob sticks and wrapped yarn around the top half. The bottom half will go into the dirt so I wanted to keep that plain.
To identify the herbs, I made little flags and tied them onto the sticks. I used a permanent marker to handwrite the herb names onto the fabric.

Next on my to-do list: buy herb plants and enjoy the fragrance and taste of fresh herbs.

The Dirt: a zen garden terrarium

I think I almost missed the terrarium train. They seem to be popping up everywhere and I’ve wanted to make one for the longest time. There’s something about each little miniature world that’s so appealing.

When I saw the adorable terrarium that Kate at Tiny Warbler made, I knew I had to have one.

For my terrarium, I used Elfin Thyme (a decorative herb), polished pebbles and a little temple to create a tiny zen garden.

I followed all the tips and guidelines for making a terrarium. First layer pebbles to keep the roots from soaking in the water, followed by moss to keep the dirt from falling into the pebbles and finally add the plant. That’s it.

I’m feeling more serene already.
