Lavender!

You may remember back in November (this post) I hung all this lavender in Mitchell's wardrobe to dry out.
 
Yesterday, I finally had a chance to 
strip the stems as it was ready.
Austin got in on the act too.
 
It was actually quite relaxing. I suppose it was 
breathing in the gorgeous aroma.
One large and one small bag ready for use.  The scent was so strong you could even smell it through the bags.
So, what did I do next? 
Made some lavender sachets, of course!

There is definitely something very relaxing about cutting, drying and using your own lavender. I bet the house smelled wonderful.
