lavender & blue

I have lavender growing in the garden this year—a bit of a miracle for me. I’ve never been able to keep it alive for any period of time, so I’m enjoying it immensely, cutting and drying it for gifts and projects.

In one instance, I paired some lavender stems with a deep blue ribbon. Intrigued by the combination, I decided to stop and take a photograph of this pairing. The handcrafted communion plate is a favorite of mine. So happy I retrieved it from the kitchen cabinet.
