About Me

My photo
I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

chalk labeled flower pots made durable

I love the "look" of cute chalk labeled flower pots for all my herbs - however I realized with all the "help" I receive with watering these cute labels would soon be washed off and I would not know what was basil and what was cilantro (okay, I could probably guess on some- but who wants the cook "guessing" which herbs she is using! Can you imagine coming to my house for some sweet tea with mint, and find out that I put cilantro instead in your tea)

So what is a mom to do - I went to Walmart and bought just plain black craft acrylic paint, and a white paint pen and "imitated" the look. I have 7 herb flower pots in an iron flower pot on the front porch easy to use when I need to cut some mint or cilantro - but now I can have peace of mind that I really will know what herb I am using. Hope someone might find this helpful!


  1. You better NOT put cilantro in my Sweet Tay!! Those are fightin' words, Missy!!
    Somewhere I saw where they are asking people to post pictures of their Porch or Patio. If you can find it you ought to post a photo of your Porch, cause it's sooo cool. Love the black furniture!!

  2. That is so very clever! Thanks.
