2  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Cheap Containers for Herbs. Will this work? (Updated with pics/tute) on: April 17, 2009 08:35:25 AM
So I've been searching all over for cheap yet modern and attactive containers for my herbs. I am going about 10 different herbs so containers could easily become expensive.

ok, so i'm thinking about using either glass vases ($1-2, 8" tall, 4" wide) or sealed mailing or packing tubes (see link: http://www.cleartecpackaging.com/plastic-tubes.html).

The plan was to

 - Drill holes on the bottom and/or sides to allow for drainage and bottom watering (as seen in this flickr tutorial http://www.flickr.com/photos/greenscaper/2519983658/in/set-72157604735985648/)

 - Cover the tube with veneer (or some other material). I've been DYING to use zebra wood and this project is small enough that I can afford it.

 - Place the container in long plastic and water from the bottom. I actually found some plastic long-stem rose boxes (approx.  3" tall, 4" wide, 36" long) at the craft store for $1. I cut them in half and my peat pots are sitting in them now

Will the glass cause any problems? (heat, air). Will the plastic be strong enough?

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Displaying Scrapbook Mini albums on: October 27, 2008 01:21:48 PM
my friend and I are doing our first craft show. We are selling cards, scrapbook minibooks and other altered items.

So far, we are thinking about putting the cards in a basket and the scrapbooks on those stackable shelves (from Target). We want something fun and funky, something exciting.


Any suggestions on how to display them?

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / TURKEY DAY HELP: in need of creative (tablescape) solution on: November 16, 2006 08:51:42 AM
The plan was to have the new guy that I'm dating in town for a quiet weekend and a simple dinner. In fact, I was going to grill. Well now my family is coming. I am hitting a major mental block when it comes to getting the table together. I've been in my house for 2 years and I haven't unpack my dishes yet and now I need setting for 6. This is what my living room looks like. Any one have any creative ideas?





I'm sure I'm not the only one hosting Turkey-Day dinner for the first time. So any one with any ideas on how you make the holiday great, by all means, please share.

On the WYWO Houston episode, they made a rolling conference table. It was covered with a eco-friendly wood alternative. Any one know what it's called? I think it's curray /quarry / query board. As you can see, I have no idea how to spell it.
