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!

Jen said...

Lavender reminds me of when I was in the south of France back when I was in high school. The lavender fields really do look like the photos you see.

Gene Black said...

I adore lavender. I think it smells so peaceful. LOL....I can't explain that but it is soft and comforting and I just love it. I love the lavender fabrics also. Mmmmm.

Colleen Kole said...

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.

Mary said...

Lavender reminds me of my Aunt Mary. It was her favorite color and the fragrance was always present in her home. Thanks, Frieda!

Maggie Szafranski said...

I am always ready to return to France! And I love irises!

Lavender is such a fresh smell and the colour too is very inviting.

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.

Laura said...

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.

annmarie said...

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.

colorquilter said...

The smell of lavendar, well I can't explain what it does to/for me. Awesome. LOVE purple/lavender/plum all of it.

Debi said...

I have to say that purples and chartreuse are my all time favorite colors together.

Kristin said...

I love the scent of lavender. It reminds me of sachets and also a fabric origami bird I make sometimes that is filled with lavender.

Teresa in Music City said...

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!!!!

Teresa in Music City said...

Oh - and I'm a new follower too!!! Looking forward to getting to know you!

Cornwoman said...

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!

Cassandra said...

I love using lavender essential oils in my iron for ironing clothes. Such a wonderful scent!

Norma Riehm said...

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.

dakotaessence said...

When I smell lavender I think of my friend Sherri, who loved essential oils. Beautiful lavenders you have there!

Suztats said...

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.

capitolaquilter said...

I always think of sitting around with my sisters and my best friend making my wedding favors, little pouches of lavendar with lace and ribbons - can't get too much more sentimental than that!

Barbara Strobel Lardon said...

Lavendar makes me think of my garden where I grow it and dry it for in my closets and in my bedrooms especially the guest room where I keep a bouquet to assure a good nights sleep.

Love this packet of this color!

KateKwiltz said...

Grandma's dresser drawer. She had these little sachets in there. It's also where she kept the dollar bills she gave us kids whenever we came to visit.
