Last year my daughter bought a house with a small greenhouse attached to it. You have to go through the greenhouse to get to the back door of the house. It's nice - like a sunroom and they have their folding chairs out there on sunny days. Anyway, she had this bright idea to plant the herbs she bought at the grocery store in a hanging shoe bag. She looked at those and also some larger hanging bags for magazines and decided on the larger pockets. She put in small stones and potting soil
and planted several different types of herbs. They hang on her house inside the greenhouse year round however, they could be planted outside when the weather warms up a bit. She always has fresh herbs to cook with.
I had my sons old crib and decided to make it into a rustic bench.I had no plans just an idea in my head. So I framed it up and laid some boards all around and lots of nails and screws and lastly made some homemade chalk paint. once dry I then gave it a couple coats of wax.You can see more of this at http://simplysimplisticated4.blogspot.com
