Spring is in the air!


Hi Y’all!  I just wanted to post a picture of the spring flower arrangement I made.  I bought the pussy willow from Whole Foods a while ago for about $5.99 and let it dry out.  If you keep it in water it will root and plant it from there.  I recently bought the  tulips from Trader Joe’s for about $4.99 – I love buying Trader Joe’s flowers, they’re so cheap!

Basically  I just put the pussy willow branches in a big old vintage mason jar we found when cleaning out my grandmother’s house.  I was a little worried the tulips would be too small for the jar, but the pussy willow limbs create a structure to keep the tulips from falling down too far in the water.  I just kind of put the tulips in there – in whatever position I thought looked good.  I like to go for a natural-looking feel.  And there you have it – a dramatic Spring arrangement for a little over $10.  It took me less than 10 minutes to create!

 

And a brief update on my mason jar herb garden…

My cilantro is doing very well as seen in the picture above… the thyme and basil not so much.  I think I overwatered it which is what I always do wrong!! I should know better.  Oh well, no one is perfect.  Matt and I are going to Ireland next week, so I think I will use the seeds I saved to start over when we get back.  Have a great Tuesday!!
