Bottletree Cafe


go to link Today I have closed up the Shop, loaded up my brother in laws truck and drove to Birmingham for the Rummage Sale! Being held at the bottletree cafe.  Also in the building are our friends reeves&fagan, designs by eeema, ally clark, and echolyic designs. The only thing better than selling cool stuff with cool people is it’s at a cool BAR!

Talking to first graders


Yesterday I went to the Tuscaloosa Magnet School and talked to the first graders about recycling and upcling. I brought along the stop sign bowl by designer Will Holman, a pair of upcycled tape measure earrings
By iamthemandy and some of our bottle top magnets. The kids had lots of questions and were extremely good listeners!  Our future is in good hands!

Herbs and compost

Curly Parsley

As for our succulent strawberries, all pots are retailing for $10!


To help out your garden we have bags of compost made from 100% green matter!!! I recommend using it two to one. That means for every two scoops of soil, add one scoop of our green compost. Our compost is sold in biodegradable burlap bags so when I finished putting the compost out I used the bag to fill in the spots of my coconut grass in my planters. It worked great and I didn’t have to go out and replace all the coconut grass! The compost retails for $5.
We are now watering our herbs 1-2 times a day depending on the the heat and how they look. If it’s really hot and your soil is dry and your plant looks droopy it needs to be watered. If your plant looks droopy and the soil is wet, stop watering it! Let it dry out. You can kill your plants by over watering as well as under watering! Just be sure to talk to your plants everyday and tell them they are doing a good job! They love that! I hope everyone has a great Thursday and please stop in and say hello to me and Jess!

Happy Herbing!!!
