What Smells So Good?

Ken went to get the mail at our tiny country post office the other day.

A big box was waiting in back and the post master was most interested

in why it smelled so good. Ken opened it so that she and all the other

customers could admire my latest load of grain sack lavender bags,

which my talented friend, Sharon Cloud of S Formulators, makes out of

my upholstery remnants.


Our post master was stationed in Germany so has loved seeing all of the 

German grain sacks as they arrive. She was sorry to see this particular

sweet-smelling package leave the building. (The photo above is of

Mitten, not the post master.)

I love all the different textures, weaves, shades and weights of the linen.

I am a real sucker for old repairs. I’m also aware that what is so beautiful

to me was necessary and time consuming for its first owner. I hope those

long-ago people, to whom I feel so connected by these grain sacks, found

satisfaction and pleasure in the beauty of their work.
