So, as you all know I am a complete Pinterest addict. One of the first things I ever pinned were these herbs being grown in recycled/upcycled tea tins which I found on this blog: http://frangipanidecor.blogspot.com/2010/11/urban-garden-unusual-containers.html
I love the re-purposing. I love the colors. I love the idea of non-breakable, non-plastic pots for plants. Unfortunately, I don't drink tea that comes in tins like this. Or tea that comes in any kind of tin I could up-cycle.
So, imagine my complete delight when I took a stroll through the Smith & Hawken isle at target and found these beauties waiting for me to take them home.
ok, so it is not up-cycling or recycling and it really wasn't frugal either but... they look so darn cool!
