May was certainly a busy month for us! We had three weddings and were preparing for our stylized shoot. That didn't stop me from finishing my book & DIY!

This month's book was Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman. It was a change from my usual chick lit taste but I really enjoyed it. It followed the life of a 12 year old girl through the hardest summer of her life. By the time you finish the book, you'll want to tend to your garden, eat Oletta's chocolate cream pie and have an appreciation for what southern hospitality is truly about.

My favorite line: "People is wise 'cause they get out in the world and live. Wisdom comes from experience-from knowin; each day is a gift and accepting it with gladness. You read a whole lot of books, and readin' sure has made you smart, but aint no book in the world gonna make you wise."

As for the DIY I did something super simple that only took a matter of minutes! In May I always play around with different things to plant and see what works and what doesn't.

For the first time I'm doing hydrangeas, dahlias, zucchini and squash. Along with my regulars lavender and basil.

I've seen a few herb markers on pinterest and wanted to make one of my own.

What did I use to make them:

  • Wine Cork
  • Paper straw
  • Sharpie
  • Knife
  • Hot glue


How much did it cost?

Most of these are household items. So a few dollars at most. Depending on how much wine you usually drink :)

How did I make them?

Step 1: Use the sharpie and write the herb name on the wine cork

Step 2: Use the knife to carve out a piece of the cork so that the tip of the straw can fit inside

Step 3: Hot glue the tip of the straw into the opening you made on the cork, cut the straw if you'd like and you're done!

Easy peasy! And so cute!
