    Oh my goodness! I knew there was a reason why I planted some lavender in our garden! It was so pretty when it was blooming, but it doesn’t looks so good right now. You have inspired me to use some in cooking. And speaking of looking good, all of your photos of the lavender are incredible! Congrats to all the winners!

    Mary, I don’t want to see Lavender Week come to a close. Every post was full of inspiration for both the kitchen and the tabletop. You have such lovely pieces to add to the ambiance of your tables and picnics.
    I’m very excited to see my name as one of the lucky ones to receive one of your generous gifts. Thank you! The Blue Crab pitcher will become a favorite around here. Already thinking about how to showcase it! Thank you for sharing all your creative ideas that inspire me in more ways than I could ever express, and again, thank you for the generous gift. ~ Sarah
