Lavender LOVE me now

I love the smell of lavender in my garden, bath and drawers.


It is so French.


Can’t you just see yourself in the south of France, eating cheese and drinking wine.


I know I can. I’m ready to go who’s with me, raise your hand?

    To tell you the truth, Frieda, I don’t tolerate scents well. So, I don’t have any opinion on lavender. But, those purples are gorgeous and I don’t even like purple, LOL!

    I would love to be in the south of France at the moment! especially eating cheese and drinking wine! Instead I’m in the UK, it’s cold and raining and I’m wondering what on earth I can rustle up for lunch!
    I love the lavender fabrics by the way! I think they’re my favourites so far!

    I always think of my dad, the gardener. I have always taken a little patch of his lavender plant with me wherever I move. So sentimental thoughts when I think of lavender and purple.

    As always-beautiful irises and beautiful purple fabrics.

    I tried a lavender plant by the back door, but after a couple years my brown thumb did it in. Lavender in quilts last longer! I had thought I was a follower, but when I checked… anyway, now I really am. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Lavender reminds me of sachets we made out of handkerchiefs when we were little girls. We would tuck them in our sock and underwear drawers. I think we had some that grew in our back yard.

    Lavender is my favorite scent. It’s smell is clean & dreamy! I have 3 lavender plants in my flower beds & can’t resist plucking a piece every time I walk by just to smell it for a little while. Most of my lotions, etc are lavender too. So some lavender graded fabric would be a welcome addition! Great giveaway – thanks for the chance to win.

    Lavender has been my favorite scent since I discovered it as a teenager! I used to buy these English Lavender soaps that I found in a local shop and can’t find anymore. They were an extravagance out of my little pittance I earned as a part-time sales girl at the local fabric shop, but well worth it. Now, whenever I smell lavender, I go all the way back to sixteen – heaven!!!!

    Oh, wow! Lavender makes me THINK of my mom – her favorite color! Love the name of your blog – didn’t know that was a favorite thing of mine to do till I was an adult and didn’t have woods around anymore to walk in! 🙁

    I would love to go to France and eat cheese and drink wine! Lavender has such a beautiful aroma, it reminds me of gardens and sachets and just softly screams femininity to me. The fabrics are gorgeous, as is the quilt. Please count me in!

    I love the smell of lavender so I planted 4 varieties in my flower gardens this year. At the end of the season I took cuttings and put them in a Christmas tin as a table decoration. Lavender is also a flattering color for blondes, and a blonde I am.

    Lovely lavenders! I signed up, but I’m not here for a trip. I was reading Wanda’s blog and saw the loveliness she got. I recognized you right away as someone I followed a while ago. I’m baaaack.

    I lived in the south of France for three years, among the lavender and roses and yes, I look at your fabric gradation and could definitely picture myself back there … I’d love to WIN this one.

    I love lavender. I have some growing in my garden and stroke my hand through it each time I walk past to let the scent waft through the air. I dried the sprigs and shared them with my family and friends. It was my mother’s favorite scent, so it evokes wonderful memories.
    I love the lavender fabrics! Thanks for the opportunity to win.
