sunday morning~ a little herb strewing~

"Herbs do comfort the wearied braine with fragrant smells which yield a certain kinde of nourishment."-
 
William Coles, 1656.

 
I've been cutting herbs to hang from the beams in the little house this morning~ the fragrance of lavender, costmary -bible leaf- and lemon balm hanging overhead and strewn across the wood floors has filled the rooms~ so calming and refreshing ~ it makes this such a serene place to be in while I work, getting the little house ready for doll making.

How wonderful, i can just imagine how heavenly it smells! I'm wanting to stencil the stairs in our house (they're already painted, but not in my colors) and want to do something very old fashioned and lovely like this. Wonderful job!~

Wishing you much joy...
