So ... I have an herb garden.
Those are words that I never actually expected to spill forth from this mouth.
It all started when one of my daughters tempt-texted me with a picture of some herb labels that were on sale ... you know where.
When I went to my (one of about 7 within close proximity to my home) Target, they didn't have any left in the herbs I would want to plant ... so I pretty much gave up on the idea.
Yes. I admit it. I was in it for the labels more than I was in it for the herbs.
However ... later in the week ... finding myself at a different Target, I found these colorful little signs sporting the names of my herbs of choice.
I actually purchased these plants at WalMart, which had a much better/healthier selection than the large home renovation store I went to earlier in the week. Just sayin'.
The oddest part about this whole process is how thrilled I was to plant them and add their color to my porch. Even odder is that I plan to actually cook with them.
Yes. I said cook.
And to add to my Target bargain-y week ... I found this very plain (but oval shaped) lamp shade on yet a different day. It cost me a whopping $11.88.
The price ... sweet. The shade ... dull.
So using some ribbon I had owned for a couple of years (which under Section 2.8 of the Bargain Code officially pronounces it free) ...
I embellished the shade using a fabric glue stick.
I'm not gonna lie ... I am very proud of my weekend's work.
How was your weekend?
