Herb Crates 1/2 Reveal

This is as far as I got on my weekend challenge.
What I thought was allergies turned into a full blown head cold. I've been tearing though tissues like nobody's business.  Taking this picture and posting here is the most productive thing I've done all day, unless you count blowing my nose til it's raw and red as productive.
I made it to The Christmas Tree Shop on Saturday before I gave into the cold. I got the extra large white plates for $1 each! I also scored some awesome drinking glasses that I will share soon! Stay tuned.
I had the napkins already. The faux grass in the pails were from my Easter Tablescape Attempt #1. (I only had enough for 4 place settings but need 8 so they've been scrapped.) The battery operated candles were also in my stash. The smallest box remains unfilled. I'm thinking maybe seed packets?
I hope to have these up on the wall as soon as I can breathe and find my energy...or when my dear husband decides to do it for me, whichever comes first. But since he is manning the house and our 3 year old wild child, I won't bet on the hubby getting around to it.

How did your weekend challenges go?

I love the idea of seed packets! Especially some vintage looking ones. Looks great so far!

:( I'm so sorry to hear about your head cold! But I have to say that I'm loving this picture! The progress is already fabulous. Can't wait to see the full reveal!

They look great. I'm glad to know I'm not the only copycat out there! I just copied your burlap table runner. I will be blogging about it later this week . . . hope you feel better!
