We like it when we find great home made ideas at FDL and even better when that idea involves recycling old material.
That's why we're very smitten with these mini planters from Alissa Rose on Etsy.com. Using old wine bottle corks she has created a home for mini plants and a great use for something that would have otherwise been thrown away.
Attached to the back of each cork is a magnet allowing people to attach the mini plants to their fridge. They require a light misting and are a great way to add a bit of life to your kitchen or bathroom.
Chef Pierre Troisgros has died at the age of 92. The legendary chef was one of the pioneers of nouvelle cuisine, and at his Maison Troisgros restaurant in Roanne, France, he was able to change French gastronomy.
