Silena of "The Enchanted Valley Boutique" had a blog contest last week. She had several stunning photos of fields of lavender. One of my absolutely favorite plants and scents. We had to guess what country she was in. LUCKY ME, guessed it correctly (she was right here in the Good Ole. USA?)

Look at the abundance of Lavender treasures I received in the mail last week. I can't begin to tell how wonderful it was receiving this amazing box of Lavender goodies.

I opened my brown box to a gorgeous Lunch Box style Gift Box. Once inside I found beautiful pink and purple tissue paper wrapped around gobs of treasures. She sent me a "Lavender/Flaxseed" scented fleece Eye Mask in a beautiful lavender organdy bag. Next was a bar of "Lavender Hollow Farm" Handmade Soap. OMG!!! I could eat it, it smells so good. Next was a purple velvet drawstring sachet filled with Lavender for me to tuck in amongst my p.j.'s. I just love to go to bed smelling fresh as a garden! lol

Then there was a bottle of my ABSOLUTELY FAVORITE scent "Lavender/Rose" Hand and Body Lotion. Last, but not least... a lovely ceramic holder to fill with another wonderful pouch of fresh "Lavender buds".

Now ladies, tell me I'm not the luckiest lady on the planet right now?

Thank you Silena for your beautiful packaging, your kindness and your generosity.

Please take a moment and pop over to her website and take a look at her lovely offerings. This was a more than a treat Silena, it was a "Gift to Treasure".
