On a trip to the market the other day I spied some potted lavender among the fall pumpkins and mums. I have never seen potted lavender for sale before so I jumped at the chance to take home a plant.

I've tried to grow my own from seeds and that never works out. At least I can enjoy this already grown version for a little while ... that is, if I can keep it alive. Gardening is definitely not my strength : )

I wrapped the plastic pot in some burlap and tied it with twine. It looks right at home on our coffee table with chippy finials. So very French farmhouse, oui?

{live beautifully}

PS- that French grainsack-like runner on the table is available in my etsy shop. I'm gonna have a hard time letting that one go : )

  6. Hi, Courtney, Ironically, my husband bought a pot of lavender I wanted today. The lady at the gardening place (called Enchanted Gardens, which is a wonderful place) said you don't water it much at all... and it will last. She planted it in the ground and just left it and it went crazy! I just stumbled across your blog, btw. Love it! Hope your lavender brings you much happiness!

  7. Your lavender wrapped in burlap looks beautiful on your coffee table. I just posted today about a big basket full of lavender that I was able to harvest. It smells so wonderful, doesnt' it?


Well hello there! You just made my day!
