Craftmates at the Niagara Lavender Festival

The day was just perfect for an outdoor picnic.  That is exactly what happened when the Craftmate Virna joined me at the Lavender Festival last July 13-14, 2013 at Niagara on the Lake, ON.  Family and friends stopped by to help out, peruse our wares or just to say hi.

Louie's terrariums and vertical gardens were a hit!
True to its promise, the lavender festival was a feast for the senses.  The festival was held outdoors in the lavender fields so purple hues abound.  As well, the exhilirating scent of the blooms filled the air.

What a beautiful backdrop to our booth!

Food infused with lavender and essential oils are available to taste and purchase.  Cooking demos and greenhouse tours ran every hour so there was no lack of things to do at the event.

We had a wonderful time at the event.  See you next year!




  1. TFS. Looks like a lot of fun. I would have loved to attended an event like that.

  2. Wow...very nice! I love all your beautiful displays, so cute and the site of this event looks just wonderful!

  3. Aimee...I have a question for you, I could not find an email so I will ask you on your blog post. Hope you don't mind. I do holiday boutiques every year and love Irma's card set displays, would you mind sharing the dimensions with me? I showed these to my husband and he will make some for me, but wanted to see if you would not mind sharing them with me. Thank you so much!
