How to perfume your house.

The summer gardens are full of flowers, roses, lavender...lets use them to perfume our homes during the winter time.
Lavender cushions in our wardrobes , will give a nice perfume to the linens.
I love to make these, but sorry , i don't know the word for it. here they call them "little bunches".
I love those, to hang in wardrobes.
Lavender hearts are really pretty!
Roses, what can we do with them?
Perfumed soaps.
Perfumed bags.
Or make some "Pot Pourri"

Hello Catherine!

Your blog post today is so lovely. I grow a little lavender, but not enough to do much with. I hope to grow more next summer.

We call them "lavender wands" -- the long woven ones you call "little bunches" I don't know how to make them, but they are so pretty and useful.

There's a woman two towns away from me who makes the most wonderful lavender soap -- it never loses its scent and smells heavenly. It perfumes any room it is in!

Thanks for the beautiful images today.
Best wishes, Cass
