It’s officially that time of year again! Every year I do a herb garden in the back but this year I wanted to ALSO have a kitchen garden. I wanted to have a few herbs at my fingertips in my kitchen so here is how I got it poppin'. 

 Here is what I did. I took old pasta sauce jars and added a few rocks on the bottom 1st. This is very important because there isn’t away for the water to drain the rocks will allow for air get trapped and circulate. This is VERY important to avoid mold build up.  You then add some potting soil leaving a bit of room at the top for adding your herb of choice.

Here is what my Kitchen Herb Garden looks like thus far. I planted {left to right} cilantro, oregano + basil. Since I really like the end result I’ll be adding a few more herbs ever so often.

I took the left over herbs and threw them in a plant pot outside for now. I’m not sure what I plan on doing with them. I’ll probably replant them separately in bigger pots.

I bought some sage + rosemary but they couldn’t fit into the small pasta jars inside, so I also threw these in a pot outback, until my next gardening session. Hope this was helpful for your gardening purposes. To see my herb garden blog post from last year, click HERE!

I love using gem tones in a space to add a pop of color and vibrancies to enlighten the home. You can achieve liveliness with gem tones by using them in a myriad of unexpected ways. Throw pillows are a common way we’ve been adding color to a space, but painting a wall, door or a piece of furniture is unexpected and livens up the space.


Dark florals are great combination of femininity, nature, sophistication and robustness. You can add this element into your home using, fabric, wallpapers, artwork, and even with accessories such as trays, coasters, and dinner ware to name a few.

Gemstones are a great way to bring the juxtaposition of color, stones + rustic elements in your home. You can purchase beautiful stones and display them or incorporate them in your décor as hardware for cabinets/drawers or as a actual furniture pieces. They're many options as manufacturers are incorporating more gemstones in their design + production.
