Lavender Sachet

I love vintage pharmacy/apothecary and soap labels and decided that i shall try printing some on linen for my lavender sachets.  The sachets are small enough to hide away in your drawers and I have added a small piece of lace or binding so the sachets can he hung on hangers.

Lavender Weekend

Whist searching online for dried lavender suppliers I came across ‘The Hop Shop’ at Castle Farm. The farm were organising ‘A Lavender weekend’ for the 1st two weekends of July which looked rather interesting so I decided that this would be my next day trip…….

From the main road the lavender fields are breath-taking, I had to stop traffic just to take a photo of this view, I have never seen fields upon fields of lavender and boy did it take my breath away and give me tickles in my tummy.

These are just a few of the pictures i took
