Browsing through Better Homes and Gardens online this morning, I came across this super cute idea.
A strawberry pot with herbs turned into a lamp. Add a grow-light bulb and ta-da! Ingenious and very cute! I’m thinking on a buffet in a dining room or as a front-entry lamp. You could even plant lavender and chamomile and put it in a bathroom. A lamp timer would be a must to keep the plants looking good but with a florescent bulb, that isn’t a big electrical commitment.
Oo, you could even go the succulent route and put it anywhere. Â Herbs in the living room is a bit strange but other small foliage would work and some greenery really perks up a living space.
I think my friend Emily needs one if we can just get her cats to leave it alone!

Great addition to this idea, metallic lined lampshade. There is a tutorial on Little Green Notebook here : http://littlegreennotebook.blogspot.com/2011/09/lining-lampshades-with-metallic-paper.html
