Weekend Challange (Herb Crates)

After stalking package tracker for 2 days, looky what arrived on my front doorstep today:

Seen them before? They've become a bit of a home decor fad among us home decor bloggers. The fabulous Layla of The Lettered Cottage started the trend:

Layla originally found hers at Home Goods. We should all be so lucky, although I am sure I would have moved right by them assuming they were meant for adorable garden sheds, which I do not have. I have got to start learning to think out of the box--or herb crate as it may be--more!

I am a total copy cat, and so I had to have these crates. I have the perfect wall to hang them on in my kitchen/eat-in area, and have already secured a stool from Goodwill to make over to go in the corner with them. It took a few attempts to track down these crates. I believe Layla ended up making sets of these herb crates and selling them, but doesn't seem to be doing so any longer. I also know that Whitewash Sundries used to sell them on etsy, but they've been sold out for a while now. I finally purchased my set from Blessed in Maine's etsy shop

My new goal is to post each Friday what my weekend challenge will be, whether it is decor, organization, craft, or shopping related. I hope you will join me by sharing your weekend goals/challenges in my comments section. (I hope to eventually host link parties, but I'm still too chicken to give this a try so early in my blogging presence) And if you have suggestions on how to accomplish my challenges, please let me know! At the end of the weekend I'll post an update sharing how the challenge turned out.

This weekend's challenge:
Finding the perfect touches to add to my new herb crates!

These are lovely! I can definitely see these in my kitchen at our cottage, so I might just have to check out that etsy page. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to seeing what you do with them. Nicole
