 Welcome Home ~ Simple Tips for Turning Your House into a Luxurious Retreat

I don’t know about you, but I love having fresh herbs for my cooking. One of my favorite ways to use fresh herbs is in tea sandwiches… herbes de Provence mixed with cream cheese makes a wonderful spread for topping French baguette, fresh basil is lovely on cucumber sandwiches…dill with smoked salmon…the list goes on and on, and the possibilities are endless.

Above are the simple instructions for starting a window tea-herb garden. Now, even in the middle of a cold, snowy winter, you can have the luxury of fresh herbs for your cooking.

Enjoy and Happy Teatime Tuesday!

XO,

    This is super cute. I might do this, even though we have a gentle enough winter to grow herbs outside all year, they are not the same as they are in the summer. And I just love having fresh, growing food in the house all the time! Brings cheer to the kitchen.

    Thanks for sharing and happy holidays!

    OK digging out the book to enjoy Teatime Tuesday with my friend even if I can’t be with you…I still have the two extra books of Chin Deep in Bubbles & Welcome Home. Will be selling them in the Spring, so watch future newsletters of Sandy’s Sweet Nothings(c) on the facebook page…Aprons and more are being made to go with the books…♥
