this mason jar herb planter DIY, I enlisted the help of the two craftiest people I know; my mom and her green thumb, and my dad and his tool box. Together, we transformed a not-so-welcoming space into a green garden oasis. And just like that, we crossed another one off the 2012 intention list.
Citrus bonus: Eddie and my mom also managed to get a lemon tree up our narrow stairs and planted, with some thyme. It smells so good.
Materials/Sources: hanging planters from Ikea; wrought-iron hooks found on eBay; chalkboard signs handmade + sprayed with this (thanks, dad!); labels penned with this. Like most things I do, twine was also involved.
