  The lavender farm is SO dreamy!   Here’s a quick pic Stefanie took as we were setting up!

I’ll have a post with all  the pretty little details SOON, including the DIY projects and recipes, 

like my Lavender & Blackberry Drop!  Oh My!


  AND here’s a peek  at those chalk painted mason jars I 

mentioned on KOMO Newsradio with Larry Rice. You can find the Annie Sloan  chalk paint at 

Haley’s Cottage.

But for now, here’s a fragrant and delicious  taste of summer with my

handmade Lavender & Violette Martini Drop!

The Tarragon simple syrup:




Use one part water to one part granulated sugar and a handful of fresh tarragon.

Simmer the ingredients on the stove top, on medium low until the sugar dissolves and the tarragon has

serveral minutes to flavor the syrup. Strain and chill in the fridge.


The lavender infused vodka:




Add a nice handful of culinary lavender to a bottle of

vodka and let it hang out overnight. Strain before using.


Next you’ll need: Parfait Amour, Creme de Violette &  fresh lemon juice.
