With the fresh bounty of summer farms all around us, my family and I picked buckets full of fresh berries and lots of fresh lavender. I'd love to make lavender cookies and lavender iced tea this year, but this first batch was destined for potpourri. Here's a little sampler of a white/purple lavender mix. I have some rose petals drying that I'll toss in too. I love putting some of the plant leaves in my potpourri - it just gives it that special somthing. And around it are these really cool metallic glaze buttons I found this morning. The big ones are 2-3 inches across and just gorgeous!
I've also been hard at work on a new product for market. Here are the raw materials ... anybody want to guess what I'm making? I'll post the completed items next post :)
And my swap package from Tammie Moore's cupcake swap arrived. My swap partner was Tammie herself and look at all the tasty cupcake goodies she sent! Such creative, pretty and festive treats packed in a darling cupcake box. What a joy to open!
