I’m home …. Home Sweet Home.
It was so wonderful being able to spend over 12 days with my mom.
Prior to traveling to be with my mom while my brother and his wife were away,
I was in Florida for 6 days. I had one day between trips.
So it is safe to say that I have spent most of the month of March away.
Glad to be home, but there is so much to catch up on . . .
the house of overdue chores, doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping,
cleaning up my layers of pollen on my porch and patio furniture
and catching up on the blog work.
Today I will share with you some Lavender Love.
This pretty vintage ironstone foot bath is filled with a real lavender plant
that I found at the grocery store.
Ugh! Grocery shopping after being away for
nearly 3 weeks can be daunting …. but it was worth it when I found this lavender plant!
When we were in Florida, I came across this wonderful Lavender shop
featuring Pelindaba lavender. A beautiful organic lavender.
The lavender shop was actually a franchise of the Pelindaba Lavender Organic Farm.
The shop was in Fernandina Beach, Florida.
You can also order the lavender products on-line. The link is above.
Oh how so wonderful the shop smelled!
The shop of lavender was filled with lavender beauty products, lavender soaps, scrubs,
candles, culinary lavender, lavender teas and more. All organic.
The photo above contains a beautiful view of the organic lavender farm
that is located on San Juan Island … a part of Washington State.
Pelindaba means, “Place of Great Gatherings”, as this lavender farm
was used by many to picnic on the edge of the lavender fields.
Now I understand from the owner of the lavender shop (franchise) in Florida,
that many events are now held there such as weddings.
A wedding surrounded by lavender fields? …. How wonderful would that be?!!
I came home with bunches of beautiful dried lavender. I cannot wait to place them in containers.
These bouquets are definitely the finest dried lavender stems that I have ever purchased.
I also purchased some wonderful Lavender Tea and Culinary lavender
so that I can bake some lemon lavender cookies!
And on another note:
The first night that I was in Florida on Amelia Island,
I met up with sweet Nancy of Slightly Coastal.
I knew she lived on the island and was so happy that she was able to
meet me for dinner. Thanks Nancy! She is a busy mom, teacher, and blogger.
We had a great, but short visit. She is a delight!!
And boy did I look tired! It was a long day of driving!
I wish you a most beautiful day.
I will be busy catching up and incorporating my treasures that I acquired
on my trips into my decor …. so stay tuned!
NOTE: All glorious statements of the Pelindaba Lavender are entirely and joyfully my own.
