    I love these. Was always going to buy some when we get our herb garden going, but this looks very doable! 🙂

    Great idea Kyrstie! Where did you get the little letterpresses from?

      Hi Erin, I was inspired via pinterest. I wish it was my idea though 🙂 I got the letters from a tool store. They are considered an engineering item I think.

    Ok great, thanks I will have to investigate! Pinterest is great for inspiration, isn’t it?
