There are these chalk board labels sold on etsy.com for eight dollars and are great to add style to recycable jars. If you want to create prettier jars, use stencils or add embelishments to create jars that are out of the cupboards. If keeping jars in cupboards there is no real need to make them look fancy; it is just a great way to recycle large plastic and glass jars for practical purposes.
I purchased these beefstock tomato seeds from Burpee for 3.25. I went to Lowes and purchased three cabbage plants, one tomato, three eggplants and three pepper plants.
My neighbor who grows vegetables had given me herb plants such as cilantro, and pidgeon peas. My neighbors have given me advice and we even give and swap vegetables. I gave them beefstock huge tomatos and they gave me corn, which they successfully grew in their back yard.
Here are some amazing photos of my garden vegetables.
This was a spanish pepper called ajes and it was given to me by my neighbor and it grew, so far only one small lone pepper
Almost every chair in my home is painted and recovered with classic traditional fabrics, based on photos can you tell what my favorites colors are; you guessed it blue and white. I like to mix different prints and solids but in same color scheme. Recovering a chair is really easy if you have the right tools, which are a philip screw driver, a staplegun, and scissors. Cut the fabric according to the size of the seat, leave about 3 inches on each side to fold under the chair seat and to staple fabric. Place chair seat face down on top of fabric on a solid surface. Pull fabric over edge of the chair sides, work one side at a time, making sure the fabric is nice and tight. When reaching the corners, fold corners tightly and cut off excess fabric to get a clean corner.
