Scent of summer

Another quick post with not much to say...
Except that it's this time of year again, when over the lavender bushes spreads the wonderful scent of lavender...
I made quite a project with lavender faggots a couple of years ago for my adopted mom, but then I missed the tiny blossoms a few years in a row. Bummer.
However, I managed to get a bouquet of lavender at the flower market the other day, so I could work with lavender again :) You just have to love this scent that spreads all over the apartment each time the stems slip through your finger...

The trio of faggots I present today is braided with thin satin ribbon in violet shades, and decorated with a bow and a flower. I'm not sure whether I'll use them to scent my clothes, they're almost too pretty to be locked in a wardrobe. A gift maybe? Or a decoration which you can rub between your fingers from time to time, to remember those warm summer days and the scent of summer...

  2. Krasne so. Podobno sem imela vse leto v lončku med barvicami. Vedno je zadišalo, ko sem vzela barvico iz lončka. Lp
