Pressed Lavender in Frame
When I visited Nice over a decade ago, in every little, quaint shop they sold lavender in some variety like soaps, sachets, perfume and bunches of dried lavender. I never realized how much of a business lavender is in France, and the beautiful lavender fields seen on the train ride into the town was breathtaking. I love lavender and never think there can be enough of it. Try also adding pressed lavender to the Gold Leaf Frame.
