bringing it home

a little bouquet

dried lavender

little pouches

We brought a box full of lavender home from our outing to the lavender farm. I took out my pile of scrap fabric to make small lavender pouches. I put the stems of the lavender in the pouch too, because the nice woman at the farm told me that the stems have a soft aroma as well.

I put a pouch under each of our pillows to help us have sweet dreams at night. I scattered the rest of the lavender pouches in our linen boxes, our dresser drawers, our closets, and my box of fabric, to keep any unwanted bugs away. And this way, our linens and clothes will always smell good!

this photo made me so happy today. Have a lovely weekend!
