ARTFUL THURSDAY- Lavender Sachet's
Just recently I purchased a pretty pillow cover from Andrea of Faded Plains. When I opened my package I found this hand made lavender sachet tucked inside.
I love this sweet gift of kindness. A simple stamped bag filled with fragrant buds of lavender.
The fragrance is sweet and calming. I tuck it under my pillow case at night for a restful sleep.
These little sachet's are so simple to make.
Pick some pretty stems of lavender and let them dry. Roll the buds in your hands, letting them fall into a bowl. Sift through your buds takeing out any large stem pieces.
Sew a pocket from scraps of fabric- using bits and pieces of ribbon if you'd like. You can stamp or embroider on your little pocket too. Be as fanciful or creative as you feel Fill your pocket with the dried buds and sew the sachet closed. Embellish your bag with sweet little treasures such as buttons or millinery- you could even pin a small tag to it. So very simple but what a lovely gift of kindness to give to a friend or neighbor.
Stop by and visit Andrea's shop, Faded Plains filled with wonderful treasures
Happy Artful Thursday
About the girls.....
Do you Remember Lilly and Lola,
two of the five Americana Pullets we purchased as baby chicks?
There will be no egg laying by these two.
There has been a little cock-a-doodle-dooing going on these early mornings.
Looks like I have me a few roosters!
Meet George and Lincoln.
We can't be sure but my sweet Cocoa is showing signs of being a rooster as well.
Three out of five?
The odds were not good to me.
My neighbor down the road purchased twenty pullets chicks.
How many of his chicks were Roosters?
Not a one!
Seems the joke was on me.
"Mr. we are not having any more pets" is NOT laughing.
He keeps saying the word "ROTISSERIE"
