A Fun New Discovery & Homeschool Curriculum Clean Out………

A few weeks ago I was at my children’s violin teacher’s home and noticed a creative way to display herbs as pot pourri.  We grow quite a bit of herbs in our garden…and I love to bring in bunches of rosemary and put it in baskets, buckets, etc.  It makes the house smell wonderful!

Pot Pourri in Colander

But I have never thought of putting pot pourri or herbs in a colander before! What a great idea! With the holes it is the perfect vessel for herbs or pot pourri to send out its great fragrance.

Love fun ideas like this…..and, of course, it makes it even neater that the colander is a pretty, handmade, blue ceramic one. ;)

    Thanks for the tip about using a colander for fresh herbs! BOINK! Why didn’t I think of that? Your post reminds me to bring some rosemary inside to mask the doggie smell! Our grandchildren are homeschooled, but I think most of your materials are for older students except for the American Girl CD.
