New way to plant your garden seeds.. Exciting!

 Spring is in the air. It's time to start planting those seeds right?
Did my title catch your eye?
Hope so, but sorry to tell you, you are not going to find out how to plant your garden seeds here.
Well, well, I don't plant any garden seeds.
Do you?
I did however, love these garden veggie, flower  packet seeds  
I spied at the dollar tree the other day for 25 cents a piece.
The colors just looked so happy on the package.

I thought, hmmm...while I am waiting patiently for our yard to start greening up, how about some color in the kitchen window.

I placed some Spring foam stickers over the price tag, I thought if I left the price tag exposed it would look kind of tacky.
And I am full of tack you KNOW!

I stuck a little pack in the ivy too.

How is that for $1.75 window pick me up?
Starting to look like Spring around here!

All I did was hot glue a strand of twine.  I already had small nails on each side of my window sill from back at Christmas time when I did the holiday copy cat challenge.
No biggie to remove the nails and calk it up.

I have been working on my teenagers room all day today. What a job...YIKES,the things we find under the bed!
I think he is going to be pretty happy though when he comes home from school today.
This job was prompted by his request.  He felt he had  a little kiddish room.
Sneak peek for ya!

I'll look forward to seeing that room redo, Debbie! I remember when my son wanted to redo his room. I guess it was around the time he started high school. He had very specific ideas about what he wanted and, luckily, we were in agreement!

Cute! I've not done seeds in a long time but I'm going to this year. Plants around here were terribly expensive last season and I've gotta have flowers...and herbs! :-)

Your banner is about the cutest thing that I've seen in a while! I guess that's because I'm so ready for spring. Leo planted some cabbage plants in the garden today.

Cute idea with the seed packets Debbie! I just planted broccoli, lettuce, snap peas and collards today and tomorrow I will be starting some tomatoes, carrots and onions. My seed packets aren't as pretty as yours, though. Can't wait to see your son's room.

As a kid I remember thumbing through seed packets. Always amazed that such little things could produce the pictures on the outside of the package.

Your little banner is adorable and so Spring-y!!! Love it:)

I re-did my oldest son's room once when he was at school but didn't tell him...I think he was about 15. I did it all Asian inspired and he was so excited when he got home, he said "Wow mom, this feels like a new life" LOL.

Great idea! I've often looked at those colorful seed packets & wondered what I could do with them. (Other than the obvious, of course!)

Good idea. I have decoupage them on items like watering cans too. I tear them in half so they aren't so thick.

Dollar Tree has their seeds in??? Like buds on the trees that means Spring will come after all!! That means the 2 feet of snow still sitting on the front lawn will eventually melt away!!Yippee!
I love this idea Debbie! I probably will be this idea very soon!

That's really cute! Where do you come up with all these ideas!! You must go to sleep at night and have your mind spinning even while sleeping! I've tried to grow plants from seed but they always get going too fast, get leggy and look terrible real quick! I just go the garden center and pick up their healthier plants from the experts!
