The uses are endless!!!! And the best part, is that they are super affordable! Here are a few of my favorite ways to use mason jars.

Springtime is a few days away! Time to clean and update the garden! Here are a few thoughts to get you in the spring garden spirit!
Grow roses in potatoes?
So I first came across this method of growing roses on Pinterest and almost didn’t believe it at first but after doing a little research it appears to be true! You find a rose that you love and buy it fresh. Cute the the flower and the bottom tip of the stem. Then with a clean screw driver make a hole in the potato the same size as the rose stem and plant!

Add color and perfume to your garden with lavender.
Originating from the English countryside,lavender loves the sun, does well in most climates and has a soft fragrance to keep you at peace when in your garden. Its fairly easy to grow and will look beautiful when cut and makes for wonderful aromatic sachet or potpourri filled pillow. A must have in your garden!
I feel like I hit the jack pot each time I find a cute item for my garden. This past weekend I went to pick up a few things at the pharmacy and found these adorable little rain boot planters. I also found them on EBay. Adorable touch for your garden!
Drugs stores and craft stores have some unique seasonal finds at really good prices and you can repurpose them to use year round. I have gotten flowers pots, lavender seeds with the pot, garden happy signs and so much more at these stores.
Add charm to your garden with bird houses
Bird house are unique and add pops of color to your garden. They are also fun projects for the kids. They are about 1-5 dollars at the craft store and the kids have so much fun painting them. Its a joy to see them hung on a tree as a reminder of the beautiful art your little ones did! Here are a few I found at Michaels.
If you’re not into the arts and crafts thing, check out Big Lots or Wayfair . You can find some pretty good selection of bird houses.
Who wouldn’t love the thought of a white picket fence, a front porch with white wicker chairs and a huge weeping willow in the front yard? We can dream, right?? Although not all of us are able to say we live in a farmhouse , we can definitely make our home feel like one. Simply add accents and some lavender candles and wala! Its a farmhouse retreat:) Here are some of my favorite finds of the week.
Nothing says farmhouse, like the color white. Add white dishes, ceramic pitchers, tablecloths, figurines, etc to give your space a farmhouse make over.
Welcome to My Green Gable Life! Anne of Green Gables is the inspiration for my blog. Life was simple, quaint, and timeless. It was an era when innocence was cherished and simplicity was celebrated. My hope for this blog is to write about the things I love which includes gardening on a sunny day, stenciling a new sign for my home and finding DIY projects to do with my little lady and my little guy.
I have never thought of myself as a writer, so writing this blog is for sure a step out of my comfort zone. BUT the other day I was thinking about the things that I really love. What would be a job that I would wake up eager to start? Something that would fulfill my life and make me a better mommy and wife. The soul searching began and then…. it hit me! Pinterest! I love Pinterest! I can spend hours looking at pictures, reading articles and getting inspired by DIY projects! Why not try creating the pins instead of just repining? I enjoy shopping at craft and home improvement stores and I think I’m a pretty creative, roll up your sleeves type of gal. So here I go and I hope you will join me on my journey to DIY projects, home decor inspirations and simple living!
