Dress Up – June * Lavender and Lace *

when I think of the month of June in Virginia … I think of lavender


the bodice of my dress is made of dried lavender

click * click for the closeup

the skirt is fresh and will dry in a couple of weeks … let’s hope Mindy’s dress doesn’t shrink too much … at least she will be VERY relaxed wearing it … aahh the smell of lavender!

be sure to visit Margaret’s Dress Up this month … she is offering  a special prize for June

update: here are my dresses from January through June
