Yesterday was mint day at my house. First I took some pics of a mint plant I got from my parents house.

Once long ago I planted some mint in a makeshift garden in my mother's yard. After a couple of years, my mom decided the garden was too much work, so my dad cut it down and planted grass. Unbeknownst to us mint is a weed and no matter how many times my dad tried to cut it back, he could never get rid of it! :)

A week or so ago i decided to see if there was any of the mint left in the yard. Sure enough, I found a nice piece growing right next to the air conditioner! So I pulled it up and I'm going to plant it in a hanging planter on my new porch!

I also got two candy cane felt ornaments finished and posted in my Etsy shop. I did something different with these ornaments: I used satin ribbon as an accent! I think they came out really cute. :) So I thought today I would do a theme of red and green mint! Enjoy! :)

Have a minty fresh day! :)


  1. Cute items! Those mini peppermint sticks look yummy.

  2. Mint loves to take over everything when it grows!

    Love the little candy canes

  3. Lol my one friend planted Mint and it took over his garden. Oh well, there's always some around for Mojito's in the summer :D

  4. So precious! all your finds are minty delicious!

  5. Great collection! Love those minty earrings. Mint is hard to get rid of for sure... we planted one or two sprigs in a big pot three years ago and now it's overflowing. Great for mojitos though. :o)

  6. I love growing mint! That reminds me - I need to plant some more :)

  7. Mint is notoriously pushy. I love fresh mint ♥

  8. Thanks so much everybody! I am a BIG mint lover! But this time I know not to plant the mint directly in my garden! ;)

    KristiMcMurry - I know don't they look good? :)

    Victoria - Aren't they cute? I love the mint green crystals, they set the earrings off perfectly!
