Favorite Things - New Lavender Tea Pot








Favorite Things

Each item in a collection has its own story, its own memory----the search, the day you bought it, who you were with, the vacation...

A week or so ago, Jen & I went out to "Lavender Hollow Farm", a locally owned lavender farm. I found this "Lavender" Tea Pot and could not resist.
So, it's now part of my collection.
I just love it!

Bill & Alice Taylor are the proprietors of "Lavender Hollow Farm" and are such delightful people. I met Alice several years ago at the Farmer's Market in downtown Modesto. She is always so sweet and helpful. She takes the time to talk with you and explain everything about her farm and her lavender products. Even though she was very busy preparing for classes on making lavender heart wreaths later that day, she took the time to go over the entire process with us. Her wreaths are beautiful and I plan on returning to purchase enough lavender to make a couple for myself.

I had my eye on that teapot! It's beautiful. I won't be able to make it to the last wreath class. Maybe we could make one together at home.
