Herb Planter For The Kitchen

Having fresh herbs readily available in my kitchen has always been one of those needful delights when cooking. Probably because I’m forever trying to add a bit of taste to those countless number of chicken breasts that seem to be an evening dinner staple. So when the editors at Romantic Homes Magazine ask me to create a project that would demonstrate “bringing the outside in” I knew my herb windowsill planter would be perfect to share.

The project combines a few of my favorite things including fresh herbs, flowers, vintage plates and a zinc box. For a detailed look at how I created the planter, check out the June issue of Romantic Homes Magazine in the “Ta-Da” column.

I can’t tell you enough how much JOY all of you bring to me each day! The way you all continue to reach out to me with the many comments, emails and phone calls has been a true blessings in my life~Thank You Dear Friends for always making my day:)

    Hello Carol,
    I love your vintage zinc box window planter with the fresh lush green oregano and rosemary. It inspires me to keep my fresh herbs close by in my kitchen. Your photos are lovely and very eye catching.
    Smiles, Paula
