Winter event pictures

Here are a few pictures from a couple of our winter events. The first four are from our Artisan Harvest Open House in Eden, Utah. Lavender Hill along with 4 other "Artisans" provided an array of options. The last one is from the Hill Air Force OSC bazaar.

New Products

We are always trying to improve our product line. Here are a few things we have added or changed. Lavender Peppermint Twist lip gloss, culinary lavender for cooking and a new glass bottle for our bath salts. And don't forget to gift wrap it in a purple box that is full of purple sizzle.

Poppy's Shed

With the help of the grant money we are building 2 sheds. The first is Poppy's shed. It will double as our greenhouse and potting shed. The other is the Drying shed. It will double as a production area and drying shed. It will have a work space and open rafters to hang and dry bundles. Poppy's shed is done. My dad got the roof done just in time for the first snow. We also got the weed barrier and gravel laid on Phase 2 before the first snow. So much to do before winter shuts us out completely. We tried to make Poppy's shed look like it had been there for a long time. We used an old door and window and antique hardware and accents.

Pictures from Zions Bank Grant reception

It was very exciting to meet all of the board members of Zions Bank Women's branch. They were the ones that read through all of the grant applications. There were 3 winners in Idaho and 4 in Utah out of 145 submissions. I saved my big check to hang on the wall in our Lavender Office. It is a constant reminder to be grateful for the opportunities we are granted and to not forget to return the favor.

Yes, I know...

Out of all the weekends this is the weekend they decide to close the canyon and shut the power off. But we shall go on. Our Artisan Harvest Event is still on schedule. I am making Lavender Lemon cookies right now for refreshments. And to put your minds at ease we are fully prepared for the power outage. We will have candles for mood lighting and a wood burning stove for cozy comfort. Not to mention tasty treats and warm coffee. Just click on the flyer to read times and location. See ya there!
