Getting Pretty with Wick PlantsI had been looking for some nicer way to wick my herbs and small plants on the island counter.  Finally I found some pretty shaped glass vases at the dollar store and used sage colored paint and sponged it onto the vase.  The house paint won't stay on the glass vase if it is scrubbed or scraped, but looks like it will stick otherwise.

Comparing the wick types.The new vases look a lot more appealing than the soda bottles or cat littler containers, and with almost a full coverage of paint sponged on, it should reduce the chances of algae in the water container.  However, the water level isn't as easy to see, so I may need to scrape a line of paint off one side or just have to check the water level by removing the plant dish.

This cute little flower was at wally-world on clearance for 60 cents.  Poor little thing was just given up on, but is doing well and happy here now.

I just planted some seeds in these, so they will need time to grow in.
