Lavendar and Old Lace

Home for the Holidays!

I am busy getting my home ready for the holidays.  
My daughter and her boyfriend are coming for Christmas.  I wanted to freshen up my guest room.  Simplifying things but sill making it very comfortable.  I wanted to create a cozy atmosphere.  A place to relax and linger.  I love the smells during the holidays.  Like cinnamon and cookies baking.  I decided to use lavender in the bedroom.  I took some old pillow ticking and made a medium size pillow.  I added several cups of fresh lavender to the stuffing.  The pillow slip is made from vintage damask and trimmed with old lace.  The room is not only pretty but smells heavenly, too.

Wow Elizabeth, I wish I could just whip up a beautiful lavender sachet like that!!! I can imagine it smells so wonderful! How exciting to have your daughter and her BF there, it always makes the holidays more fun having the kids around no matter how old they get:)

I'm sure you know I ordered some cherub tags from your Etsy shop:) I'm so excited to receive them!
