Its an herb garden.

It's an herb garden.

Well Surprise, surprise another wheel...imagine that. I found this beautiful orange wheel and couldn't wait to do something with it. I ran a large bolt through the wheel and the loop on top of the wire half-basket, then attached it with a wooden knob. Moss (god knows I LOVE moss), a few herbs, a piece of junk and my plant markers from a previuos post and it is ready to hang in your kitchen or even on your front door. Tied with an extra bright orange gross-grain ribbon and it's complete. Happy Thanksgiving!!! Georgia

It will take my husband a while to catch on that there are bricks where the wheel used to be! That is so handsome. I want it on my front door--stay tuned. You've done it again!

SnowmanHill writes: I love the wheel project! I have been hunting for them and I haven't found any yet, bummer. It's just charming. By the way- when I hung my sled I used a chain and just screwed hooks into the ceiling beams. I just decorated it for winter- you should do it! I look forward to your posts- Krista Posted: 8:59 am on November 9th

LuAnn writes: Love this too!! The rusty thingy looks like some of the pieces I picked up a couple of weeks ago at a farm/estate sale. This is a cool look one could pick by the kitchen all year round. Good Job.
