...gather ye lavender buds while ye may!

...ah the heavenly scent

of

~ lavender ~

clean...
...fresh
and simply LOVELY...




hello dear girlie's!!

i hope you're enjoying summer :)

this week,
i've been working on my outdoor
swirly iron garden chairs.




nothing difficult,
i just made new "slings" for them,
out of the softened/non-chlorine bleached drop cloths
and a few new headrest pillows.

i have two of these chairs
and they are perfect for unwinding after a long, hot day:)




like a hammock
but
better!!

(i can never seem to get comfy in a hammock!)
((i just feel "swallowed"!))




so these suite me just fine

did you happen to notice something hanging off of the chair??




and did you also
 recognize the faux "grain sack" fabric??!

i had just enough left over
from my rose-Mary rocking chair make over
to make a
~ flower gatherer ~




and just WHAT is a
~ flower gatherer ~
you may be asking yourself??




why,
it is a lovely carrier
for all your le fleurs of course!

simply grab the smooth stick handles
and away you go to your beloved garden.

snipping and cutting away to your hearts content




thinking about how beautiful
all your flowers will look inside

...or out :)




or maybe,
you like the way they look hanging off of your chair

like i do!




either way,

oh-so-loveliness!




i adore the rustic grommets,
and the hemp tied handles...




and of course
it wouldn't be complete without the ~




RUFFLES!!!




and
a pretty tag...




the little see through vellum strip
 whispers
"find beauty in all things"




after you have your cuttings for the day
you simply gather up the handles...




and you are on your way :)
