This was such a fun day. We went to Yvonne and David's after lunch and finished an art project Yvonne and Kat had been working on the day I went to Suttons Bay to do some birthday shopping.
After the last coat of Annie Sloan wax had been polished off Kat's moon and stars mirrors, We gathered some fresh lavender from Miss Yvonne's garden and went to the porch at the red house to make bouquets.
I think we ended up with five bouquets. We took them home and put them in different places around the cottage...and it smelled so pretty. I wish we'd ended up buying some sachets to preserve the lavender after it had really dried and started to fall off the stems. I could have tucked them in closets or drawers to keep things smelling summery til next season.
Next year I'll think ahead so we have some lavender preserved. And I'll also be working on adding more lavender to the garden so we have our own continual supply.
