Stop & Smell the Lavender

Hi All,

While at the cottage I went to a farmers market.  We had high expectations since we were in Amish Country and they all have farms.  Well, it was almost a total bust.  There was squash, jewelry and misc. stuff that had nothing to do with a farm or a market.

At the end of the row, we spotted a lady with gobs of lavender.  Ooh, all was not lost!  We chatted for a bit, I purchased a few items and we went to the grocery store to get some produce.

Once home, the lavender smelled wonderful in our cozy cottage.  It even looked great.

Isn’t it delightful on my old door?

Anyway, the next day we drove out to the lavender lady’s farm and store.  The business is officially called, “The Lavender Lane”.  It was wonderful!  She has over 300 lavender plants and 12 varieties.  You can even cook with this stuff!  Who knew?

Look at all that beauty!  It smells amazing too!

Lots of choices.

I realize many of you will not make it to Northern Indiana, so I brought it back for you!

Vintage Restyled now carries large and small bundles – which are great for decorating and as I have said many, many times – smell amazing.  The lavender sachets are also available and can be placed in all the vintage furniture you have!

I am thrilled to have met the lavender lady and to be able to support her business while offering local folks authentic products that add beauty to your home.  Ooh and the smell…did I mention the smell?

XO-

Shannon

I love the smell of lavender. Everything is lavender at home... shampoo, conditioner, moisturiser. Of course, it doesn't compare to the real thing.

Having recently visited Shannon's booth, I can attest to "the smell" which is divine. If you're anywhere near Heritage Square Antique Mall, you should visit her booth and clean her out. :)

Ooooh, I just love the smell of lavender.
That "go jump in the lake sign" is too cute:)
