spring has sprung…

a favorite haunt any time of year…

feels like you’ve stepped into a magazine…


with new things to delight the senses each and every visit…

The Cottage is in a cute nearby town…

they never disappoint…

this visit I got to meet the Lavender lady…

fun chatting and dreaming of a June Lavender harvest again this year…

a little retail therapy is a good thing…

always a fun place to visit

  31. Patty, I peeked in late last night and got so busy catching up and a bit too tired to say anything intelligent {not that the daylight adds much to my abilities…ha!} so here i is again. Well worth revisiting as I love this place. I remember it from a previous post way back when. So glad to hear that you are doing some fun things like this…every little bit of warmth & light helps during these hard times in life. Thinking of you often, Xo, Sue
