Remember the lavender that I harvested back in the summer? I finally did something with it! Years ago I saw a suggestion in Martha Stewart magazine to put lavender in old tea strainers and use them in drawers and closets as scented sachets. Lavender also has the added benefit of being a repellant to moths (I've had an unfortunate incident recently with a favorite wool cape).
I bought this strainer for a couple of dollars, including shipping, on ebay. It's a nice large size and it cleaned up very easily. Ebay had lots of choices including some beautiful sterling silver ones! I think that I'm going to be on the lookout to add to my collection of two strainers!
I filled the strainer with lavender buds, tied a bow on the top and stashed it in a drawer. Now I'm hoping that the lovely smell will subtly scent the drawer!
