New projects

I finally painted the old etagere we bought in Nice 3 months ago...I've chosen a grey paint with white patina...this is my grey time! I like this colour!

...I've a big amount of lavender...I made bouquet, wreaths and all kind of things with it, but I'd like to try something I made a scented I've to wait a month before using it, but I'm looking forward to spray it on my laundry...I'd like to smell the Summer scent all the year!

...finally I printed some adhesive labels for the bottle...the photo isn't clear enough, but I'm satisfied of the result!

Oooooh I love how you decorated your crown with Lavender!! It is gorgeous!! I just came in from the garden, I have watered all the flowers and the plants. And I stopped and smelled the Lavender, they such fantastic scent, like I am hypnotized! And I love the colour as well, like the grey you selected for your new find. Yes, grey can be beautiful. With a drop of red in it, it get warm!

Thank you friend for the words you left behind, you are so very kind!

Hugs, Aina

Hi Vale! How are you? Oooh, lovely lavnder.=) How was your birthday? Finally friday, have a nice weekend! Hugs Madeleine

Hello Vale. I can be that the rose need water. You have to water well each time you water the roses. It can be a desice (how do you spell that - I mean it can be ill). Try to go to the library and borrow a book of roses. It may need som good soil aswell. Roses like soil from cows - do you know it? We call it cowcompost. See if there are lies on it as well, wash with soap and water. It works. I wish you good luck :) Have a nice weekend. Hanne

Min Verden Hanne ha detto...

Look at my page now. I published a new one just now, with a pic. of one of my roses that need better soil and more water. I have yellow leafs. You can click on the pic. to get a better look. If it is the same - try to buy some rosefood at the gardenshop. They will know what you need. Forgot to ask you if you had a great birthday? Hope you had :)

Sherol Vinhas ha detto...

Que requinte!Que maravilha!

Madeleine ha detto...

Hi Vale! It seems like you had a nice birthday. And who cares about the age? Not me. ;) No, the rose is not mine, but it´s beutiful dough. Iam going out to the sun now, the Swedish summer is so beutiful and I love it. Have a nice day! Hugs Madeleine

Gaia ha detto...

Ciao è sempre bellissimo venire a "trovarti" in questo paradiso. Proverò a fare i biscotti ma devo comprare la lavanda o aspettare di tornare a viareggio per strappare qualche rametto dalle piante di mia mamma.
come hai fatto a fare l'acqua ala lavanda? alcool puro e ?

Se decidessi mai di andare al mare fammelo sapere che magari ci potremmo incrociare!
a presto

Gaia ha detto...

Grazie Vale,

ci proverò e ti saprò dire. nel frattempo aspetto di sapere come è venuto a te!
buon weekend anche a te!
