35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

I Baked!

I'm not sure what is up with me. I know I'm a good cook but the baking bug has really hit me lately. I've never been one to bake but these days I'm a fool about it! Thank goodness I have Leigh's trusty hand mixer to tide me over until I get a beautiful Kitchen Aid one day.

I currently have a lavender tea bread in the oven. Lavender is my other 'thing' these days. Last week I made the most delicious and refreshing batch of iced tea made with mint green tea and lavender.It was divine!

Wow...I never thought of cooking with lavender! I always thought of it as a sachet/perfume kind of thing. I saw on FB you were looking for some...did you end up buying a plant and using the flowers fresh?

I had some dried already. I actually have a gift certificate for a garden center so when I get a chance I'm going to buy some plants and put them in my yard. The tea bread was fabulous!

I'll be right over! haha Sounds like it's smelling soooo good at your house. I'm a tea I'm going to have to try the mint/lavender combo! :) Have a great week!
