Iron Craft #24: White

This week's challenge:

"I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m dreaming of a white Christmas. Last year we had an almost snowless winter in Minneapolis. Some people might think that is great, but I like snow and winter. It looks beautiful and makes everything feel so cozy. Anyway, since I’m thinking white I thought I would make this challenge a color challenge. Make something where the prominent color is white." (Courtesy of Just Crafty Enough)

I've been wanting to plant an indoor herb garden for awhile now.  I've ordered the organic seeds and have finally planted them last week. 

Now to decide how I'm going to get them the proper amount of sunlight. 

The sun comes in beautifully along the side of our kitchen.  That is where I've put a big fern inside a macrame plant hanger (remember I made it myself?)

So I thought I would continue with the macrame theme to put the new herb garden along that same window.

This week I made a mini plant hanger in white!  I actually used some white yarn that I picked up at the thrift store for 99 cents.  And I have enough to make 5 more of these bad boys to hang all along that side window with a different herb in each.

The mug I also picked up at the thrift store for 99 cents. 

Here is is hanging in macrame central (my laundry room/studio)

I used a ring at the top and only 2 kinds of knots.  I'll put up the tutorial for this particular mini plant hanger on Macrame Monday next week.

Once my herbs get more established in their starter pots, I'll transplant them to these and hang them in the window.  I'll be sure to share the progress on here with you all of course.

I wish I had a window that got enough sunlight in winter for some herbs. I can't wait to see how yours look all filled up and green.

curious when you moved to Minneapolis and didn't tell me? or your family?
