Doin' the Herbal. . .

How cute is this??

 
What a find at the DI! I paid 150pennies for this cutie-patootie :)
The only thing that could have made me like it more would have been if I came with the pots. I found some that were the perfect size at Wally World for 75cents a piece (not DI prices but I needed them. . .BAD)

It didn't quite have the look I wanted it too with the terra cotta colored. . . er. . .a. . . terra cotta pots so I decided to try my hand a cool crackling trick with some Elmer's glue.
One of the most wonderful blogs I read had a fantastic tutorial the other day on this and I knew I had to try it .. .on something. . . and here was the perfect oppurtunity!
Please check out 'Make the Best of Things' and leave her some comment love. She does some pretty amazing things. . . I am soooo jealous of her painting skills!!!

Here's the after of one of the pots I tried.
I was surprized I pulled it off and it was super easy!!

 

I am so in love with this!!
I am putting it in my window sill and starting an indoor herb garden.

 

I planted some chamomile, lemon grass, and spearmint and can't wait until they sprout!!

Great way to complete the project. I love herbs and need to plant more of them--a cute planter to have them in makes it even nicer!
