Peppermint spider repellent: Spiders don’t like strong-smelling herbs like mint, lavender and orange. THEY HATE PEPPERMINT OIL. Add 10 to 15 drops of peppermint essential oil into a spray bottle with 8 to 12 ounces of water. Spray around door frames, windows, small cracks, corners of the ceilings and bathrooms. Use peppermint essential oil without water for a more potent version.
Recycle your old newspapers into plant pots for seedlings. When it's time, transfer them straight to the soil - they're biodegradable!!
Plants in vintage suitcase...a new thrift store want! I love this idea for my new back yard. It would be a good carryover from a informal country chic inside living space.
