~Lavender Containers & Flowers and Simple & Sweet Fridays~

I love lavender.
I found this glass at Anthropologie and had to get it,
 just to put my lavender in it.
Speaking of Anthropologie.
 I found this little Eiffel Tower plate there.
You could use it for jewelry but, I put it in the bathroom with lavender buds on it.
There's nothing prettier than fresh flowers displayed together.
I just went into the garden and picked everything I could see at the time.
Tea Rose, roses, hellabores, larkspur, lavender, westeria,
breath of heaven, and statice.
It was a fun day playing in the garden...

Happy Thursday everyone!
