fleurs, scent, and color
in my master bath
are soothing to all my senses.
An English lavender plant on the counter
adds a light fragrance
and a soothing feeling when touched.
The lavender bath salts
also add both fragrance and a soothing touch
when added to a rejuvenating bath.
The lavender plant looks so refreshing in a white planter
against the periwinkle walls.
The sight of its blossoms atop long airy stems
reminds me of fields of lavender in France.
French Lavender hand soap
releases a fresh burst of lavender scent
each time I wash my hands.
I can hear the buzz of the bees and see the butterflies
hovering over the fields and fields of lavender plants.
A tutorial for how I made paper butterfly boards
is at Butterfly Inspiration.
A framed dried lavender bouquet is a reminder of the
bundles of lavender found in French markets,
cut fresh from the lavender fields.
Another visual reminder of joyous times...
At the end of the tub is a handmade wooden peg rack with
a carved heart that is filled with hats of summer
collected over a lifetime
of special events and times.
The lavender-y blue cap is a
Space Shuttle Endeavor STS-134
cap that commemorated the last flight,
May 16, 2011, of the Endeavor.
It was the next to last flight of the
entire Space Shuttle program,
and seeing the Endeavor launch was a life-time dream.
Lavender house slippers feel so good to wear
after a long day of working.
No matter how stressful my day at school had been,
coming home and wearing these slippers always
made me feel relaxed.
Stacks of sets of original house plans for the house are
tied with lavender picot-edged ribbons and sit in a basket.
Special memories always come to mind when I look at them.
The lavender embroidered hand towel
is from Sarlat, France,
a magical medieval French town.
France is renowned for its beautiful linens.
Exquisite details and multiple colors
are perfect examples of why
French linens are treasured.
For a tour of the layout of the entire bath,
Lavender touches that connect to my senses,
truly make my bathroom a restful spot for me.
What gives you a soothing rest at the end of the day?
