~A French Lavender Heart~

Hello Everyone,
Let's have a tea party.  I've made the favors and the tea is brewing.
'Pink Perfection' is perfection. Don't you know and  I love Spring...  
Do I have a favorite season? Well,  I love each season.  They are all so different. 
 Especially being a gardener I'm always watching and  interested in the way my garden grows from year to year.
Now let's sit back and dream of being in a tea room filled with wonderful ladies.  They're visiting and eating delicious food and drinking the best tasting tea.  ~ I want a tea room~ whine!

I've been making these hearts for a couple of years now. 
 Since I have lavender in my garden I use the dried lavender blooms in the heart sachets.
I make the hearts in different fabrics and now I want to embellish them for a more professional look.

The back is covered in  red velvet and a satin ribbon for the hanger. The hearts are very versatile for decor, drawers or closets and  lavender has long been used as a pest control agent.  I love the smell of lavender in the bathroom too.

I'm getting so much joy from my 'Pink Willow' dishes.
  One of the best Christmas gifts I've given myself in a long time.

Sweetheart and I are very busy here at My Cozy Corner.  March is birthday month.  
My Sweetheart will be 70 years old on March 10th
My mother is going to be 91 years young on March 14th
Our son will be 48 years old on March 16th and his name is also Patrick.  I just couldn't resist naming him Patrick when he was born at 9:30 p.m. on the 16th. (I had meatloaf with a shamrock on the top and green jello in the hospital when he was born. It was meant to be). 
Also my Sister will be 68 years old. on March 25th. 
I hope she doesn't see that I put her age out there for the world to see.
My Sweetheart has two  friends having their birthday the same week as his and we are going to a brunch on Friday for the  guys. 
Sorry! I'm always playing around when I write a post.  Now let's see where was I.
Oh I remember... I made a card for my sister with the mosaic that's at the end of this post.  I love making handmade cards.  With the great printers and photo editing software out there, card making is so much fun. 

This set of 'Pink Willow' was made in England and I purchased a place setting for eight before Christmas from Tuesday Morning.  (If your new here...I work part-time at Tuesday Morning)  Wow!!! Do I have fun straightening everything.  After working as an accountant most of my adult life I  love working  with people.  I do the register most of the time and everyone is so sweet and kind to me.  Even if I'm slow.  But I'm accurate!  


Thank you so much for visiting My Cozy Corner.
I hope you have enjoyed our little soiree.
