Tuesday's Treasure with Melody

Today I am sharing my love for the smell of 'lavender'. I adore it. It transports me to a beautiful place. I also love looking at it in gardens, love laender candles and aromatherapy melts, love stitching it, love having creamy lotions, love recieving beautiful cards featuring lavender, love having a cup of tea and a bikkie out of my beautiful lavender mug.....I even have a very BAD hat and lovely socks. I bought these when we visited "Bridestowe' lavender farm in Tasmania a few years back. I just get the 'look' when I put my cute little hat on. I know I have posted about that place before....but I was truly in heaven! The smell was devine! Another four weeks later and we would have missed it as it would have been harvested.
So my Treasure this Tuesday is the humble but magnificent "Lavender" plant.

Smile at some one today.

    You know I have never really given it a lot of thought but I love lavender as well. I always comment on how gorgeous it smells and if I think about it more, I too have a lot of candles and oils and lotions.
    A friend of mine used to own a lavender farm and she would make lavender shortbread - oh what fabulous memories. Thank you :-)

  8. I love Lavender too and would have it all over my garden if it wasn't for the fact it attracts bees.It's such a calming scent.

  15. I share your love of all things lavender too Michelle. Have you been to the Lavender shop up on Tamborine Mtn?...
