Wrap yourself in one of these blankets and you will know what it feels like to be safe and warm. Assorted colors available. Great for a throw on a sofa or chair, or place on a bed (twin size).
We love our wine, but hate throwing away the bottles. So I hand paint the bottles with designs or pictures - flowers, lavender, trees, leaves. Then I insert lights that you can turn on for a pretty glow. You can place the bottles along a path at night, or along your porch, or even decorate your home with them. Great gifts as well.
I love canning products like spaghetti sauce and salsa, but I usually end up with a lot of unused mason jars. So I paint them with pretty pictures and light them with solar jar lights. Place these outside on a path, on your porch or even hang a few on a tree. Turn the switch on, and forget about it. They will automatically illuminate when it gets dark.
Coming soon for the holidays!

My name is Laura. I live with my two boys and my husband on our little farmette. For 21 years I was a public school teacher - enjoying the journey in the very beginning, but then realizing that working in a large school system wasn't aligning with my values. Hence, I went on to become a certified yoga teacher (550 hr) and found that going back to my roots of finding solace and comfort in the outdoors was better suited to who I am today. Through this site, I can share with you my journey of growing lavender, raising baby chicks, cultivating a variety of vegetables and herbs, but most importantly finding purpose and happiness.
Lavender Fields is the name of our little farmette that my husband and I purchased in 1997. The main house on the property was built in 1710. The original farm consisted of 251 acres growing tobacco, corn, and later became a fruit orchard. Therefore the soil that we have around us is fertile and easy to work ith. After experimenting with gardening around the house, I found that lavender is the one plant that deer won't eat, groundhogs will ignore, and our sandy soil will support. Lavender evokes memories of my grandmother (who lived in England). With my love of creating - I found that lavender is versatile. Today, I make candles, soap, sachets, lavender bundles and and use the plant as inspiration for painting. We also tuck a sprig of lavender into our cartons of eggs. Most importantly, lavender brings solace and comfort with it's fragrance.
Lavender Fields is also home to a variety of vegetable and herb plants. Each year we have different plants that do well - but Sage is another plant that grows prolific here. Using dried sage to cleanse oneself or environment is pretty popular now, although the practice dates back 1000's of years. Living in a home that dates over 300 years - I've found the saging can be restorative.
We have 16 chickens which includes Carl our rooster. Currently, we have 6 baby chicks being raised by Pants our Cochin hen. (Check out my blog to learn more about Pants and her babies). We LOVE our chickens, - they are everything to us...and to be honest, we loved them way before eggs got so expensive. We also have our resident cat named Meaghan
