I have lost count how many times I have brought potted herbs into our home only to have them shrivel up and die shortly thereafter. I have set them in filtered light, full sunlight, over-watered and under-watered them. No matter what trick I use I cannot sustain these poor things’ lives. I figured while I have the luxury of having fresh herbs around for at least a few days, I might as well make them look pretty.
Here are the supplies:
I recently purchased this old-school Rotex label maker from eBay for $10 [including shipping]. If you’re a child of the 80′s like me you’ll probably remember using one:
I love the modern, minimalist look of these labels.
I cut a few wood shims in half, length-wise simply using scissors. I cut until the shim became a bit thick and cutting was too difficult. They don’t need to be large anyway.
Attach your labels and you’re done! Easy.
I am drawn to all-things modern, black and white lately and just love the simplicity of these herb markers. Not to mention, it’s always fun seeing things from my childhood and using this old label maker was a kick. “Everything old becomes new again,” right?
