Pot plant easy labels

Plant labels


This is just a really quick and simple craft.
I wanted to grow some salad and herbs but instead of just leaving the pots on the windowsill and wondering what seeds were in which pot I knocked together these cute plant labels.

I used some mini pegs that I already had, coffee stirrers that I got from a coffee shop (free) a plain gift label cut in half and decorated with paper shapes.
See so easy, get the kids involved, let them pot up some seed and design their own label !

Have a go and cheer up you Boring pot plants!
Happy crafting.

Shabby chic ideas for the home

Shabby chic bed side table.
Well I have well and truly caught the shabby chicing (is that a word?) bug!
I want to shabby chic everything!!
 I started small with the candlesticks and then went that had gone well I moved on to my first piece of furniture.
The bed side table was originally from Ikea but had seen better days. I had wanted to do something with it for a while and finally I got round to it.
 I gave it the same treatment as the candlesticks,  I'm not going to go through it all again so here is the link 
so you can see what I did.
I just wanted to share my pictures with you all and basically show off!
