Guess what I did this weekend......

....besides walk an hour for Relay for Life and weed two flower gardens, I made some sachets. I really needed to find a sit-down job after all that bending, pulling, raking and walking. It was also very windy and cold yesterday in Michigan.

All of these are filled with 1/2 cup of French lavender buds.










If you look back in my archives, you will find a post telling how our Victorian ancestors might have used these. All are available in my webstore, Aunt May's Cottage.
Which one is your favorite?
