Simple, fragrant treasures....

I love using pieces of gorgeous old lace on my projects ~
I love even more working with lavender buds!
The entire studio smells like Heaven right now.

I think I'm almost finished with these sweet sachets...
I may add a few buttons or other embellishments but they're
definitely in the home stretch!

Shouldn't you always add your lavender with an old silver scoop?

I kinda like them all piled up together :)

You have got to see these amazing nests my dear friend Sharon sent me!!!!
All the way from Maine...
Can you believe the detail?
How long did it take the sweet birds to complete each one?
Sharon found them in her yard getting ready for the hurricane last week.
The wasps nests were a bonus!!!
Thank you so very much sweet Sharon....I love it ALL!

Wouldn't my new nests look amazing inside these glass wall boxes I found at West Elm???
I think I need to put two of these babies on my wish list!

I love elegance and old lace...
I love rustic and natural.

I guess it's OK to love it all??

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend dear friends and
wish you a beautiful week ahead!
Happy Tuesday angels,
hugs and love,

Hi dear Dawn, Your lavender sachets are just gorgeous and they must smell heavenly. All those laces look very yummy and your clock face embellishments are great!
That's a sweet scoop you have there. I don't know why I have such a thing for scoops. I find them so cute.
The bird and wasps nests are wonderful. How sweet of Sharon to send them to you.
Have a lovely Tuesday too :-)!
Hugs to you,

Your sachets is a dream. I want to make some myself but I need to find Lavendersomewhere first. Dont know where. I have seen some at Etsy but they seem a bit expensive, perhaps I am wrong about that? Seam binding, I will never get tired of it, so pretty together with laces and crochets. Your work is stunning. The nests are so adorable, pretty and simply perfect.
Looked at you previous post as well, Omg so many lovely things. You are a lucky lady haveing all those gorgeous treasures in your home.

Hi Dawn, what a beautiful collection! I LOVE your sachets - the vintage watch faces are amazing with the textiles. And the bird nests and wasp nests are amazing! Wasp nests are actually a type of paper! But most of all, your smile is lovely.
