A is for .....

A is for a lavender sachet for my DIL.  It's a Lesley Teare design.




We've just had the first long weekend of the summer and it was most pleasant except for the gale force wind on two days.  It was also the quietest May long weekend we've experienced in cottage country.
 
This little sweetie (tree swallow) decided to set up home and she and her fella were quite busy and fun to watch.
 
 find your joy and keep it close

Hope you didn't have any damage from the winds! What a super looking birdhouse! Glad it is being inhabited by the bird pair!

We had horrible winds last week but finally calming down and warming up.
Love the bird house, I need to make some so the birds will stop nesting under my porch, getting a bit messy out there, lol.
