Here are a couple of images, which I took yesterday and today. There is so much colour around here, it is wonderful.

Like I told you last week, I wanted to do something nice with the lavender I got at the farmers market. Well, the blossoms dried very quickly and today I started to sew little bags and filled the dry lavender blossoms in them. Maybe you know that such bags are great to put in the closet to keep clothes moths away but I also saw another nice way to use them. You can actually put your hot teapot on the little bag and the heat of the water brings up the wonderful smell of lavender...If you like the smell of lavender try it out...it is so easy to make and looks nice, too..

For everyone in Europe, I think these are quiet exciting news :)

Have a great start in the new week. I am quiet excited, because we will see Sufjan Stevens on Thursday and Friday at the Opera House.

Cute pictures. I really like that fabric you used, with the green pattern. I've got lavender on my balcony and made some little bags last year, but I haven't tried putting the teapot on top. I'll have to remember next summer!

What pretty lavender sachets! You can also slip one under your pillow or hang it near your bed - it's supposed to bring sweet dreams.

Hi!
I have been looking for interesting blogs, and yours is

one of them.
I - Ruslana, my blog about art, love and dreams.
If you care of the letter, art and mutual relations, it

is more than other trivial thing it now value of

people...
If you don't have taboos that restrinct you and you

prefer say what you believe...
If you wish to know about process of drawing of pictures,

from the author of set of portraits, and about that. What

can be love and hatred from the author of the book...

take a look to my blog,
and if you like it, let nobody shut you up, follow it!
