Ladies in Lavender




These are just a few things I found at a local craft store.  I'm suddenly on a lavender kick now!  Although this is not real lavender, I thought it would work for now to dress up my kitchen table. 
I don't really know that much about lavender I guess, but I wonder if it would be something I could grow in my region.  Since I live in the desert, it gets pretty hot in the summer and I usually follow the guide lines for the region 7-9.  Does anyone know if you can grow lavender in a container?  
I must do some research! 


It was another rainy Saturday here in Las Vegas, so a great time to curl up with some favorite magazines.
Here's a little peek inside. 




Another favorite read this weekend was Layered, Tattered & Stitched A Fabric Art Workshop by Ruth Rae http://www.amazon.com/Layered-Tattered-Stitched-Fabric-Workshop/dp/1600611885


Can't wait to try some of these things! 


Then what better way to end a rainy Saturday than with a little homemade clam chowder made by my sweet husband.  I am a lucky girl! 

So, to sum up my craziness about lavender earlier I hope someone can give me some advise about growing the real thing and I also wanted to share with you one of my absolute favorite films if you haven't already seen it.

Last but not least I want to send a quick hello out to my Dad
who reads my blog from time to time.
Love you Dad!

Hope everyone has a great week!

Hi Becca- love the photo with you and your dad- so sweet! I love lavender, too, but I have never tried growing it, wonder if I can grow it here (probably at least as an annual). Thanks for sharing all the pics- I love the photo of the porch and arirondack chairs, I will have to buy that mag!

Hi Bec, Love your new finds, Very cool I bet they look great on your table. Your Magazine and book look just like your style. Looks like a fun way to get inspired. I also love the picture of you with your Dad, to cute. Can't wait for the stamp show next weekend. Hopfully we can hook up and go together.
Talk to you soon. Linda

Yes, you can indeed grow lavender in a container. I have some in my little fairy garden. Of course most herbs like good drainage and dry regions, so you should be perfect. Make sure there is gravel or some pebbles in the bottom of the pot. If it drains well and gets proper sun, you should do well. Love that pitcher it's in!

Ladies in Lavender was an awesome movie! I had never heard of it but stumbled across it in the "slightly older" section in our video store. Love your blog.
