Lavender Love

I know what
smells like now...

It arrives with a California postmark,
and is packaged with the utmost loving care...

 Antique European grain sack pillows, 
filled with the most divine organic lavender
you have ever experienced.
Absolutely dreamy!

 And available exclusively from my sweet friend Maria's
glorious new online shop.

Thank you Maria,
I love my beautiful pillows and sachets!

I'd also like to quickly thank my dear friend Carol Spinski
for the absolutely lovely post she dedicated to me just the other day.

Be sure to pay her a visit at her new site here.

Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Hi Anne,
I read Carol's post in tribute to you, it was lovely, as is she. I'm happy to call her friend, she's so talented & has a heart of gold.

The pillows and lavande look just lovely from Maria's shop, I'm going to have to purchase something to savor here at My Petite Maison one day soon.

Isn't Maria's Shop just the most wonderful online shop ever? I also ordered her beautiful French Toile pillow, and it is filled with lavender too.
It's featured on my blog header even. She's wonderful, and your photos look incredible as always Anne. Have a wonderful week, xoxo tami

I wish I could smell those pillows and sachets - although the way you've described them I think I almost can!

When I won Maria's giveaway at the holidays she stuck a little lavender sachet is wonderful! My son loves the smell too!!

If you've never
visited a lavender
farm, put it at the
top of your list, Anne!
We try to go each
summer in WA State
when we visit my folks ~
The smell and the bees
buzzing, snow-capped
Mt. Hood in the background.....
You'd love it : ) Carol's
new site is great and I
will pop over and see the
well-deserved words that
she has surely written about
you. Happy Tuesday!
xx Suzanne

Oh, I know, Anne! When God created lavender, He really gave us a special gift! Isn't it wonderful! I love when I'm crafting with it - so soothing!
Hugs, Diane

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

Gorgeous, Anne! I love the smell of lavender but unfortunately my body is not so keen on it (my nose gets itchy, I start sneezing...). And, there's a most beautiful lavender farm not too far from our farmhouse in Southern Quebec of all places (they were told it would never work with our harsh, far from Provencal climate, but they've made it work and it's amazing!).

I'm right there with you...Dried lavander has got to be the best scent. I always sell dried lavender bunches, but unfortunatly never keep any for myself...sad. Although, I do use a good bar of lavender soap everyday.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

Mercy, I bet you could smell the fragrance before opening the box. Nothing says old fashion than lavendar. Truly a lovely gift and what a website Maria has.

Hope your day was blessed too.

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Hi Anne, hope all is well over there in Texas. Those sachets and pillows are absolutely gorgeous and I have no doubt they smell divine. I bought a box of dried lavendar from Pottery Barn, intending to make sachets of some sort, but I am seriously lacking in sewing skills. :/ One day, I'll try, something! Best wishes to you, Tammy

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Hi Anne,
You are making me want to go over to her shop and order some of these! They are just sheer loveliness and I know the smell is devine.


~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I can must imagine how fragrant your home is! I love lavender...and I did go visit the shop and I'm still drooling! Hugs! ♥

One Cheap B*tch said...

I can smell that lovely lavender all the way over here in NY!

Marie's shop is beautiful. I will hop over to Carol's blog, from all you've said and comments left, I have no doubt I will be adding her to my daily read. Lovely images! Hope you are doing better and are soon in your dream come true home!

Your Friend,

Jane @ Jane's Junk and Treasures said...

That Maria! She just does everything right!
I love her shop!
Guess I better get on it and order me some too!!!

Pamela said...

I love the way it came packaged.

the gypsy chick said...

i am so Drooling on my laptop right now... i am having this crazy obsession with lavender right now {i bought some this weekend in houston} & am pretty sure that i am having a questionable relationship with Mrs. Meyers {lavender scent}
can't wait to see what you do with it!!!!

Mandy Saile said...

These look heavenly indeed...Suddenly I am craving summer & missing my teeny tiny little patch of lavender that actually came back for the first time this past summer, ha ha.

Beautiful photos too.
