lavender blue dilly dilly

Do you remember that song by Burl Ives? I remember it from when I was a little girl. He had the sweetest voice.

Anyway, I love lavender. The scent of it as well as the beauty of it.

While shopping at IKEA the other day, I spotted pots of lavender for $6.99.

Now, faux plants and flowers are tricky…most of them scream plasticky fake like Heidi Montag after a 10 procedure day at the ol’ surgeon.

And the ones that don’t are a bazillion dollars.

But not these. I think they are lurvely. 🙂

My mom is here visiting and cracking the whip. She flew up here to help me weed, organize and purge. But I’d rather play!

She’s doing a great job keeping me reigned in and focused. (Not an easy task…let me assure you).

So far, we’ve accumulated an entire room filled with donations that are being picked up on Thursday.

Man, stuff can really mentally weigh you down! Can I get an Amen?

But purging, tossing and donating can SET YOU FREE! Can I get another Amen?

Uh-oh…she’s cracking the whip again…gotta run!!!

    AMEN SISTA! and again I say AMEN!!!

    Spring cleaning has begun down here in Nashville-even though it is only 38 out-brrr! Maybe it will be done by the time spring has sprung (doesn’t help I’ve missed a few springs-yikes!)

  3. I was just at Ikea last week…..I put the same lavenders in my cart, removed them, put them back, and in the end didn’t buy them. Now that I see yours, I’m kicking myself. Looks like another trip to Ikea is in my future =)
