PINK SATURDAY & TUSSIE MUSSIES


Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday! This fun event is hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. If you go to visit her you can get a list of all the other participants.
This week I went to visit friends and before going I made them each an herbal tussie mussie. I love using herbs to make them first for the scent and second is that they can use the herbs to cook with later in the week.
Usually I will put a rose in the center of these but since my stargazer lily's were in bloom I used them and that made the scent so much more intense.


The second one. The pretty vintage cake carrier was painted by my daughter Jen of Jen's Petal Palace.
Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you. I will be back on Monday with a Blue Monday post so stop back if you can!
Have a great weekend!
Bless you, Shirl
