At this very moment, I can count at least 10 cans of spray paint in various colors within arms reach. Once I start using the stuff, it really gets addictive. So after I created the simple, recycled centerpiece for my dining table, I was inspired to use spray paint to make over another reclaimed material that I’ve worked with once before: toilet paper rolls. This time, I decided to use them to create napkin rings for the table.
What you’ll need:

- 1-2 empty toilet paper rolls

A few weeks ago, my husband and I took on the task of planting some herbs and veggies, hoping that we’d eventually be able to bring the fruits of our labor into the kitchen for some literally fresh from the garden organics. I think it’s safe to say that Spring-er has arrived in Georgia. “Spring-er”, meaning it’s still spring, but it feels like summer. Case in point: It will be 90 degrees today.

Or at least some of it. :: READ THE FULL POST

Last year, my husband and I put down an outdoor rug on our patio, added a couple of chairs, and planted some strawberries in a Topsy Turvy planter. Well, let’s just say we hadn’t done much out there since — except let the strawberries die. I know. Sad.
Well, that was then, and this is now. With spring — and all its pollen — in full swing, we wanted to add some life and color to the space. We started with a few hanging flowers, a couple of ledge boxes and a basket of strawberries. We also grabbed a beautiful rosemary plant, which has already added some great flavor to our meals. :: READ THE FULL POST
