Since we moved into this house 3 1/2 years ago, we’ve been slowly renovating, with our limited budget and our limited time. But the big, daunting renovation hasn’t yet been tackled – the kitchen! I really detest it, so I’ve been keeping my eyes open for small projects I can do to pretty up the kitchen until we can do the big reno. I lucked onto nowathomemom.com and saw Ingrid’s cee-yoot mini kitchen cart project and I’m coveting it. I think any small side table could work and I’ve got my eyes out for one now.

I’ve been talking about growing my own herbs for probably the last year, but with the arrival of a baby in April I STILL haven’t found the time to come up with a plan for my herb garden and actually make it happen. And now that it’s August, I’m thinking it’s probably best for me to push this project to the top of the list for next Spring. That said, being the mom of a newborn means that I’ve spent endless hours nursing these past few months and I’ve kept myself entertained by surfing the web and browsing Pinterest on my iPhone (what did women do back in the day without their smartphones!?!). I’ve pulled together a few of my favourite ideas for growing your own herbs. Not only is a herb garden functional (never again will you spend money on a large bushel of dill only to use 1 tablespoon in a salad dressing and have the rest go to waste), herb gardens are also a great way to decorate your kitchen, deck, patio or porch with some greenery.
