I  hope  this  issue  inspires  you  to  grab  the  remainder  of   summer  by  the  horns  and  ENJOY  IT!  Wether  that  means   getting  outdoors  to  rest  and  relax,  or  grab  your  paint   brushes  and  get  creative!  Or  maybe  this  issue  will  inspire   you  to  grow  your  own  lavender  patch?  I’ve  been  dreaming   of  growing  even  more,  as  I  have  so  many  fun  ideas  on  how   to  use  it.  In  this  issue  you  will  read  about  some  of  them. Even  though  the  days  are  already  getting  shorter,  it  is  still   awesome  to  be  able  to  squeeze  every  last  ounce  out  of  this   sunshine  while  it  lasts.  Here  I  am  with  my  daughter  in  the   strawberry  patch.  The  berries  are  late  this  year,  I’m  hoping   that  means  summer  will  last  just  a  bit  longer  too.  Who   knows,  but  while  it’s  here  there  is  sure  fun  to  be  had!  I’ve  got  weeds  eating  up  my  garden  right  now  so  I’ve  got   to  run.  I  hope  you  enjoy  every  ounce  of  this   publication.......  I  SO  APPRECIATE  YOU!

We focus on ‘HOME”. We are inspired by yesterday, farmhouse beauty, simplicity, and the promise of tomorrow. We love to celebrate creativity, home, and family. We believe joy can be found in the simple and small things all around us. Being outdoors, or creating a space which is uniquely your style in your home can have such an impact on one’s spirit. Happiness can mean a warm home, a hot meal, and family and friends all together. Happiness can mean snuggled up with electronics turned off (unless you’re reading this digitally) ;) Happiness is finding inspiration and motivation to actually do or try something new, which may awake a new passion inside. Happiness is home Homebound Magazine was created by Post Road Vintage and began as a free quarterly e-zine. It has since expanded into a full digital and print magazine which is published six times per year..

NESTING BOXES

When  we  developed  these  woodworking  plans  I  had  NO  idea  that  I  would  want   so  many  sets  of  them,  and  in  almost  all  rooms  of  our  home.  They  are  so  handy   and  so  easy  to  customize.    Make  one  or  two  to  stack  as  shown  here.  Or  create   long  rows  of  them  for  a  toy  room,  bed  room,  entry  way,  or  office.  I  have  these  in   my  sewing  corner  to  corral  supplies  and  fabric  and  love  the  spaciousness  and   how  they  ‘control  the  chaos’  with  ease.

lavendula (lavender) Lavender  is  one  of  the  most  romantic  and  useful  in  the   cottage  garden.  Prized  for  it’s  delicious  aroma  and   versatility,  it  is  one  of  my  favorites.  But  I  love  it  most  for   it’s  dried  buds  which  may  be  used  in  all  sorts  of  crafts,   body  care,  and  recipes. When  planting  lavender  it  is  important  to  choose  one   which  is  hardy  to  your  climate.    There  are  many  available,   but  only  a  few  main  types.  The  English  (Angustifolia),  the   French  (Intermedias),  or  the  Spanish  (Stoechas). In  my   zone  4-­‐5  garden  I  have  found  that  the  Angustifolia   varieties  are  the  most  hardy.  Generally  the  Intermedias   are  more  susceptible  to  cold,  with  the  Stoechas  being   even  more  fragile.  Regardless  of  your  climate,  lavender   loves  heat  and  dry  conditions.  Most  importantly  it  loves   well  draining  soil,  as  it  does  not  like  having  soggy  roots.   By  pruning  lavender  right  above  the  woody  part  in  the   spring  after  new  growth  has  started,  you  will  encourage   vigor  and  new  growth  and  suppress  the  tendency  for  the   plant  to  become  overly  woody.  I  usually  do  this  after  the   first  bloom,  as  we  have  a  very  short  growing  season  and   gives  more  of  a  chance  for  a  second  harvest.  You  do  not   want  to  prune  too  close  to  fall  if  you  live  in  a  cold   climate.  If  you  live  in  a  cold  region  and  don’t  get  very   much  snow  you  will  want  to  mulch  your  plants  to   protect  them.  (We  get  tons  of  snow  up  here  in  the   Upper  Peninsula  of  Michigan  so  I  skip  this  step.)

NO SEW lavender sachet

Occasionally  I  am  in  the  mood  to  create  without  the  hassle  of  hauling  out  tons  of  supplies,   my  sewing  machine,  etc...  This  is  why  I  created  this  ‘no-­‐sew’  sachet.  It  is  such  a  quick  and  fun   project.  I  plan  to  make  one    for  each  closet  in  my  home.  These  would  make  beautiful  gifts   and  are  a  perfect  way  to  use  up  your  extra  lavender  buds. Lavender  was  used  in  the  Roman  Days  for  healing  and  antiseptic  purposes.  Now  it  is  more   popular  for  it’s  calming  and  mood  changing  effects.    I  know  it  does  have  the  ability  to  release   tension  in  my  neck  and  jaw  when  I  smell  it.  Is  it  because  I’m  relaxing  and  releasing  in  the  act   of  closing  my  eyes  and  inhaling  deeply?  Regardless,  it  makes  the  perfect  filler  for  sachet  to   stick  in  your  pillow  for  a  restful  night’s  sleep.
