lavender basket12:53 PM
For Max's school they asked for donations on items that could be auctioned off next week at Block Walk and I thought, "hmm...my mom has lavender coming out of her ears why not do a lavender basket that goes to a good cause?"
My mom and I put together the basket above. It contains all her good stuff Like:
2 bundles of lavender, 1 'clean' bundle and 1 field bundle (meaning that the buds have not been removed from the bottom of the stems), 2 lavender sachets made from her vintage hankies, 1 lavender soap made for her by Spirit Goat, 1 lavender honey jar made for her by Cox's Honey, 1 bag of Grosso lavender (the fragrant kind) and 1 bag of culinary lavender.
Can you tell its lavender harvesting season? I feel like every other post is about lavender. Last year I was completely lavender'd out. I remember thinking to myself, "if I see another sprig of lavender or find another pile of buds I am going to scream!"
This year's not so bad...I enjoy creating baskets and making them look pretty so lavender and I are friends again this year.
