Lavender Giveaway

July 5th, 2011

I’m still recovering from the Fourth of July dessert course.  And I still don’t have a working refrigerator (more on that later this week).  

I also have a serious bee problem because I have a ton of lavender on my property, which means my kids resist playing outside, and because I need my kids to play outside for their welfare and my sanity, I have decided that today is the day that I will definitely harvest all that remains of my French lavender.

This is just the beginning.

And because there is just no way that I can keep all, here’s my proposal.  I’ll harvest it and giveaway fresh bundles this week.  Would you like some? 

I’ll fill a USPO medium flat rate box with several bunches of French lavender and ship it to five people later this week (randomly selected by Random.org).  Giveaway ends tonight at midnight PST.

Simply leave a comment to be eligible to win some.

Bee back soon  (couldn’t resist).

Fireworks Vases + Happy Fourth!

July 4th, 2011

I have a confession to make, I am crazy about Japanese washi tape.  So much potential for cuteness in one little roll, I am smitten!  I was browsing Etsy a month ago and stumbled across Pretty Tape.  It was then that my love affair with this charming crafting tool began.  I ordered a few rolls with plans to use them on birthday or holiday gifts.

With the washi tape and some white ceramics, I also made some fun fireworks vases for the Fourth of July.
