A gift for Kathleen on her 100th White Wednesday

I wanted to do something special for Kathleen since
she is celebrating the milestone of 100 White
Wednesday posts this week so I whipped up a
lavender sachet for her.

I thought it turned out pretty cute...tufted buttons
and all.

But then somewhere in the back of my mind a little voice is whispering to me that I think she may be allergic to lavender. oh dear. I think I remember her commenting about it at one time, but it may have been someone else. I need to find out asap.

I know this is a White Wednesday post and I have lavender lilacs, but there is some white so I think I am okay. lol.

These gorgeous lilacs are from a start that I dug up at my son and daughter-in-laws home two or three years ago and it is already big enough for me to cut flowers off of. Amazing!

When I first put them in this container and filled it with water it promptly all ran out the bottom all over my windowsill. Oops..it is a planter not a vase. So I put them in the white pitcher.

Please visit Katheen over at Faded Charm this week where she is having some amazing giveaways to celebrate her 100th WW post. Kathleen, please let me know if you can handle the lavender sachet or not. Would be happy to send it to you!! Blessings~ {chair grapic found at the graphics fairy blog}

What a kind and thoughtful gesture that is! I hope Kathleen's not allergic to lavender, that would be tragic!!! But it will look just as lovely if you have to fill it with something else:)

Hello Sandi... what a beautiful sachet you created for Kathleen!... I know she will love it... you may have been thinking of me and my allergies to lavender... (unless it is in the garden)... when I ordered those gorgeous hearts from you, I asked that they not contain lavender... your lilacs are so pretty!... I posted lilacs too, so irresistible!... xoxo Julie Marie

I think that will be my project planting this year, a lilac bush. My mom gave me one when we moved in (her all time favourite bush) When we put our porch in it got demolished. I've always saved that spot for one and now it's got car parts in it, time for a move. Thanks for the inspiration. Love your little gift, and I do remember someone saying they have an allergy.

Oh my goodness, what a pretty post and such a thoughtful gift. Hoping she wasn't the one allergic to lavender, but if so, you can always fill it with rose buds or just polyfill. It is beautiful.

Hugs,

What a beautiful sachet! And how thoughtful of you to make Kathleen a gift! I am sure she will treasure it! Your lilacs are beautiful! I have cut each and every one of mine and enjoyed them in the house until they completely withered away! Now I'm awaiting the roses!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
Amanda
