This magazine / publication is one I have poured over - for gardening tips, recipes, etc. It was one of FOUR magazines I had in my house - all food related! I picked this one because I've used it so much - and when I opened it to page 28 I smiled.
The inspiration was a photo of a raised bed filled with lettuce. The brown / green is perfect, and instantly I missed our raised beds / garden from the home we just moved out of (we moved 4 months ago). We always planted a large variety of veggies, herbs, etc.
"Indoor Greens" is a reminder of our garden - appropriately created for our kitchen! I recently picked up the spices fabric that makes the top and bottom sashing, and I have been excited to use it for something in our kitchen - this was the perfect project!
I create in my home studio in Montesano, WA when my two munchkins allow me a little bit of "free time".
