Upside Down Sky Planter: We can think of at least three awesome reasons to start hanging plants upside down in our small apartment. First, it’s space saving; these plants don’t take up any floor space. Second, they are way more kid proof than plants on lower surfaces. Third, it’s pretty quirky and would make a great conversation piece at our next party. (via Apartment Therapy)

12 One Pot

12-Indoor-Herb-Garden

One Pot: Basil, thyme, sage. These are indispensable herbs, and they grew in abundance on our front stoop all summer.

Ikea Hack: Don’t ask me how I came up with this project…it’s a long story. Basically, my dog Charlie can jump really high and will eat anything,so I needed to make a wall-mounted planter that I could place out of his reach. So the Vurm herb planter was born. I already had the IKEA Vurm on hand; it is actually a wine bottle holder, but it turns out that the wider white wine bottles don’t fit, and I’m a big white wine fan. So I took the Vurm right off the wall and it sat collecting dust on a shelf for a… (via Curbly)
