This has got to be one of the cutest ideas for using a pallet to create a vertical herb garden, especially if your space is tight.  I just love vertical gardens anyway.  I think the thing that sets this one off so good is the script lettering ~ Zina just takes it up to a whole new level with this.  If you can’t free hand then you can enlarge some script from your computer and use transfer paper to transfer the design then get a paint pen at the craft store and carefully paint over the lettering.  Do not seal with poly because the poly will lift the acrylic paint.  Find a spray acrylic sealer for the best results.

mini water gardenHow adorable is this ~  me thinks this might attract bathing fairies … oh my!   What an enchanting and fun way to use all of the little shells and rocks you’ve collected.  I think this would also go beautifully on your altar in your sanctuary or meditation room.  You could also have one of these at your desk at work.  If you’re expecting guests, put one of these in your guest room for an extra special welcome.
