Collection

I'm hosting a baby shower next month and was in need of some party favors. After searching Etsy and the internet for over an hour, I suddenly realized I had quite a collection of vintage hankies waiting to be listed in my shop.

I located my stash of buds from Havenhill Lavender

poured a pile into a freshly ironed hanky

cinched it up with ribbon....and voila! Vintage hanky lavender sachets.

What a great idea! Hope you'll soon be out of hankies ;)

Looks like you were busy! These look great. SO much nicer- and a definite keeper vs. the crappy little plastic baby in a rocking swing, wrapped in a tacky country blue dishcloth that I got not too long ago.

That was the problem I kept coming across on my internet searches...WTF would anyone do with that stuff?

Hey Harriet said...

What a fab idea. You're too clever!

Hope you don't get a cold now & have no spare hankies on hand :)

These are fantastic! What a wonderful idea. And yeah, these beat any favors I'VE ever received HANDS DOWN.

*am blog-hopping today* :) Nice bundles of fragrance! I love lavender scents, but I've never come across real lavender buds before. I have a mind to buy them in bulk and make little sachets. :)
