Botanical Goodies

We all know Etsy's a great resource for jewellery, yarn, felted pincushions, and the like - but did you know that Etsy's also a great resource for dried herbs, flowers, and spices?

3oz Sample Dried Lavender Buds by PoPkO

Perfect for sweet little sachets - I've heard that enough lavender will keep moths out of your woolens, though I'm not sure that's scientifically sound.

These would be great in potpourri, or in a centerpiece or wreath for Valentine's Day or a June birthday.

Or maybe for even tossing at a wedding?

Don't know what you'd do with a whole bunch of lovely dried flowers? Get practical with some lavender tea:

My favorite lavender/tea blend is Earl Grey, but this black tea is probably nice too.
