Remember the doily secret I promised to reveal after Xmas? 

Well, Xmas has been and gone. I hope you had a perfectly beautiful one. AND the gifts have been given away so now I can show you just what I did with these. First I lovingly grew some herbs in my garden. Then I harvested them, dried them and stored them in recycled Coffee jars.  I have a bit of a soft spot for these jars, they come in all sizes and are most useful. I decorated the jars with some pretty stickers and made some labels.....then, I popped a doily on top to make it pretty.......and tied it with a ribbon...

I popped in a little herb strainer.......Gemma added a little ribbon to this too. ;-)

Then I put it in a pretty box and added a floral headband and some pearl and flower bracelets.....

It looked very pretty, don't you think? 

Next I wrapped it all up in cellophane and tied it with some curly ribbon. 

This gift was for my oldest daughter, Ashlee. SHE LOVED IT!!!!!  Phew And I had so much fun putting it together. Now I just have to convince her to actually open it and use it. LOL She did not want to undo all the prettiness. 

Have a great day all. 

Hugs and smoochies xoxoxox


  1. Karisma, I love the coffee jars. What a neat idea. I hope you have a Happy New Year!

  2. What a fantastic idea! Everyone needs herbs. Cute how you got to dress up the jars further w/the crocheted doilies.

  3. What a lovely gift! I'm assuming that Ashelee knows what to do with those herbs (being your daughter). I went more the homemade route this year with great success!
