Single Stems of Sage in Vintage Bottles

July 3, 2012

20120703-060140.jpg Our rooftop garden in town had a profusion of sage growing. I really wanted to bring some of that feathery soft green back inside. Our faithful vintage bottles would once again come to the rescue. I snipped 3 stems, and they were just enough to bring a hit of life to the area behind the sofa in the living room. Really any herb will do. I just love to be able to walk up to them and rub a leaf between my fingers, releasing a bit of the oil. There is just something about the simple act that I finding soothing. Using herbs in place of flowers is a great way add variety & color to a room, when blooms are not available, or you just want to mix it up a bit.
