Alexa Simone Cushions
I had only recently made new covers for our scatter cushions or I’d have been very tempted to buy some of these cushions by
Jane Sedgwick Beads

Sally McGill’s delicate ceramics
Gorgeous delicate ceramics by Sally McGill. Alas, absolutely no room in our flat for any more.
The sweet smell of lavender
Delighted to smell lavender as we passed
Prilly Lewis’s stand and so pleased my sense of smell is getting stronger all the time.

contain lavender leaves as well as savory, marjoram, thyme, rosemary and oregano, but of course, rosemary and lavender are closely related. Herbes de Provence
