Friday, I opened up my front door and was treated to the most lovely smell wafting from my mailbox! I had ordered some french lavender buds from POPKO at Etsy and there they were! Yeah. Just lovely--very aromatic and pretty! Not like the crushed and dried up old lavender that I always see around here. Plump, colorful, and smells like heaven. I ran right downstairs and put into action a little idea I had rolling around in my mind for a few days.....
I made a little sachet with that gorgeous vintage trim that I recently acquired. So soft and sweet. I took pictures of it hanging on the pretty little cabinet I found to put in my new staircase--isn't it lovely there? I need to make one for us--this cabinet just looks bare without it! It's listed here .
I finished up this totebag just this morning before church. I'm very pleased with it--a medium weight khaki canvas base with a cute patchwork band in greens and pinks and a little vintage rick rack, of course! (what's a bag without rick rack??) Here's my darling teeny tiny daughter modelling it for the pictures. She sure makes it look big! Oddly, it looks much smaller when I carry it! LOL It's in my shop if anyone is interested.
Well, I have some dark bananas in the kitchen just waiting to be turned into some banana nut bread--mmmm, some more yummy smells coming right up!
