Where Would You LOVE to Cook Today!

pine kitchen with purple tile and counters

Isn't this a calming kitchen.

I found it over at:

I kept going back and back to this picture because it was so calming.
I love the softness of the lavender and flowers are a 
nice touch. I always  have like the those drawer pulls too.
I was trying to decided what I wanted to make in this kitchen 
and since this was the week I did my homemade laundry soap,
 I thought what would be fun is:
Lavender Ironing Water

3 oz. 90 proof vodka
12 drops pure lavender essential oil
12 oz. purified water

Sterilize a 16 oz. bottle by boiling for 10 minutes or 
run it through the pot-scrubber cycle in your dishwasher. 
Pour the vodka into sterilized bottle, add lavender essential oil. 
Swirl vigorously to mix and let stand for at least 24 hours. 
Add the purified water.
 Pour into a spray bottle and enjoy the lavender’s refreshing scent while you iron.
 Store in the refrigerator.
 Keeps for six weeks, after which it gradually loses its scent.
Caution: Do not use this in a steam iron.

I love the smell of Lavender and if you have to iron ....

Why not doing with a nice calming smell. 
Where would you LOVE to cook today?

  1. This is too modern for me but I love this feature you've been doing. I'd love to cook in a Amish kitchen just once! And lavender is my all time favorite!!
