More from France and a freebie!

sachet_lavender2 My recent trip to France inspired this pretty embroidered sachet. It’s filled with the wonderful scent of dried lavender, purchased not surprisingly in the south of France. Lavender is truly the iconic motif of the area. While fields of lavender dot the countryside, images of lavender adorn all variety of household items. That and of course images of olives, sunflowers and the noisy cicada, or in French the “segal”. It’s a large cricket like bug that makes a loud buzzing sound.
