Whatever the reason, October is almost over!
Anyway, I'm glad you came by for a visit! I thought I'd share these pink and purple sachet hearts with you.
One year I stitched up a bunch to give away on Valentine's Day. I stuffed them with cotton batting and dried lavender from my garden. I kept a few for myself, too. Nothing is as soothing to me as the scent of lavender. I just love how refreshing and clean it smells, without overpowering. I always spray a little on my pillow before bedtime, to help me sleep.
The buttons, pearls and rosettes are from my button bag and my trims box in my sewing/craft/messy jack-of-all-trades room. I never get rid of anything after I finish sewing or working on a project, as a result I have a lot of things stashed in bags and boxes that I can use whenever the creative mood strikes me. Over the years I've sewn a lot of really "girly" dresses and Halloween costumes for my two very feminine daughters! They could never get enough lace, pearls, or ribbons. I can't tell you how many fairy princess costumes I've made, and we still have them all! I can't bring myself to get rid of them, and you never know - maybe someday I'll have little granddaughters...
I'm very sentimental about my two babies! They're both grown up now, one 20, the other 13...but the pearls and the little roses on these sachets remind me of birthday parties, holidays, christenings and other special moments with them when they were both so little.
Hanging from the door knobs in my bathroom and closet they add just the right amount of femininity to the spaces, without overwhelming them and looking too "cute".
I savor the memories of my daughters, twirling in their new party dresses, putting on "ballets" in the living room, and Mr. H&H and I trick-or-treating with our two little angels, and fairies, and princesses. October has gone by quickly, but nothing can compare with how fast the years have passed, as we've watched our little girls grow up into beautiful young women. These sachets are a daily, gentle reminder for me to slow down and enjoy the moments, as time flies by.
