OK so I’m no Martha Stewart. I’ve never crafted and I’ve never been topless on Saturday Night Live.
So when I picked some lavender off the newly planted plant this autumn I naively thought I could be creative enough to do something nice with it. Sadly this lovely purple plan went from this:
to this sad attempt at arts and crafts:
You see this is why I took music in school and not art. Though to be fair my flute has been gathering dust for nigh on 20 years now too.
I strung up what I could in a pitiful knot and tied it to the chain on our bedroom ceiling fan/light.
Not with ribbon but string. Not a bundle but a handful. Not good. Not at all.
So I went to Pinterest and looked at what normal people do with lavender. Apparently smarter and craftier people are out there in the world sharing this type of information.
I especially like the linen water and scrub. These all seem like good ideas.
Good ideas for next year at this point, but good nonetheless.
