~Lavender~

Since I don't have anything blooming this time of year in my own garden and I can't always buy fresh blooms, I like to have dried ones around the house, such as lavender. 

I've recently been going through items that I will be adding to my Etsy store, which I'm still hoping to open soon.....so bear with me!  I've been collecting some french treasures to sell similar to what I have in these photos.  I came across this french zinc pitcher in my stash and added some lavender to it.  Now it resides in this area of my office where I can smell it's lovely aroma while I'm on the computer.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

A few french books with candles wrapped in french paper and this vignette is perfect!

I like the contrast between the lavender and the chippy white drawers.

Joining Treasure Hunt Thursday, Be Inspired Friday and Feathered Nest Friday this week, so please take a moment to stop by these lovely ladies blogs and get inspired.

  1. I just adore this vignette Kathleen! I agree that the lavender looks perfect next to the chippy drawers. Wish I could just 'come across' a pitcher like that! Ha ha.
    Looking forward to hearing more about your Etsy store. :)
