Clarke is still amongst us...
In a search to fill the blank wall in my kitchen, I found an Ikea inspiration ad from which I decided to steal almost every decor detail. Two problems... my negative green thumb abilities and zero natural light in my kitchen. After more research, I found that I could overcome the natural light issue using traditional CFL (compact fluorescent lamp) bulbs as "grow lights". And after more consideration, I decided I would overcome my planting inabilities with dedication.
The newest living additions to my home are basil, cilantro, and thyme. If these puppies have a positive life status through the end of August, I'll add rosemary, dill, and chives to the collection. I'll also consider replacing the target desk lamp with a more aesthetically pleasing stainless CFL hood.
This is a true Fashion Meets Function moment in the KV household!
