The article in the recent Somerset Life by Alice Wingerden inspired me to make some cone sachets with fabric scraps on hand.
A recent order from PetiteMichelleLouise provided the lovely ribbons on the sachet.
This peaceful spot in our living room is a cozy place to sit, with it's proximity to the fireplace and pillow cover made from an old winter sweater:
Here's a favorite end table, found at an antique mall 12 years ago and perfectly shabby chic ever since. I only had to add glass knobs to enhance its' charm. Housing my collection of catalogs and magazines (and various misplaced toys) makes it functional, too.
Our son loves anything to do with Knights. He pores over books instructing one how to become a Knight, and loves to practice 'Defending the Faith'! I thought these tags (also from PetiteMichelleLouise) would be perfect for him. He's already signed the back of one with his gallant name. Another tag is hung from this white tureen, reminding us of that noble era:
More Valentine tags...the lovely Marie Antoinette tag on the left was made by Rosemary of Ozma of Odds, included in a purchase of one of her gorgeous paper ex-voto lockets.
I made the other two simple tags for Valentine's day:
Let's toast to romance, heraldry and nobility! (and lavender!)
oh i'll toast to that! J'adore ALL of those things a swell.....romance, heraldry, nobility and the powers of lavender! How sweet that your son signed one of my knight tags! I love the tags you created as well. merci, once again, for your very sweet compliments mon amie. my heart is happy. :)
All your whites are soooo lovely! That sweater turned pillow is very sweet! Love the lavender.
Susan, everything is gorgeous! I just love your blog, so glad I became a follower. Wonderful whites, xoxo tami
Your home is so beautiful and serene!! Your photos look like they came out of Victoria magazine!
Have a great day.
Your home is warm and cozy...I love the sweater pillow! And that chippy little cabinet, too!
Your son sounds so cute! :-)
Beautiful post for Valentine's Day!
Such pretty pictures... I toast my glass of wine!
Great post, Susan! I love all your photos!! I am hoping to make some lavender sachets in the next month too!! I need to figure out where to get bulk lavender. Where do you get yours?
Those are such pretty whites! I love the lavender and the little sachet, beautiful!!!
To answer Michelle's question (I couldn't email you back at All That Jazz):
The lavender buds came from the Ebay shop "Making Scents with Nature" (seller id: manajo), and I've also ordered buds from the Ebay shop "Lavender Luxuries" in the past.
White & lavender - two of my favorite things! ::Jill
Everyone knows I love white and Lavender is my favorite scent!
Beautiful post, Susan! It looks like something out of a French mag. I adore the whites, adore the lavender, and adore how you've combined them! :) Happy WW!
I think all little boys dream of Knighthood :)
I love your bedside table. It's the perfect size and so chic. Fun white touches all through your house!
