Happy holidays!

On the front doorstep the Muscari have finally opened...
There have been blustery beach walks with friends and their dogs, treasures laid out to admire....
We all choose our favourites...
Woodland walks give treasures too, some are the memories we share and some will be added to the nature table....
and I have had a little time to make gifts for friends. More lavender pockets stitched on vintage linen....
I use old table cloths for the reverse as I have so many different colours of this type of cloth...
a thank-you to the family friend who so carefully picked and dried all her lavender to add to our own harvest last year....
A thank-you to a friend for a parcel of deliciousness....
and a thank-you to a friend who so kindly gave her time to help....
The fair season starts this weekend for me with the Little Vintage Lover Fair at Blakeney on the coast. I am so looking forward to seeing everyone for a good catch up. I should be sorting out my stock and making sure everything is ready to go... but instead I have become involved with a little cake....
I'm looking forward to sharing one particularly wondrous day trip which resulted in lots of pictures I know you will love! Soon I promise. Two more days of birding trips to enjoy before the weekend then back to the normal routine! t.xx

I am another fan of lavender, and I'd like to let you know how much I love all the sachets you've shown.

It's always a pleasure to visit your site. Best wishes.

Is that what they are called - Muscari I have only ever known them as Grape Hyacinths! Lovely collections, and I love those Lavender bags they are very pretty.
