i wanted to share the most wonderful present my sister got our family for christmas.  she’s nice like that.  but you cracked the top open and the first thing that hit you was the smell of lavender from the sachets she made.

then there were all the different textures, old things, carved things, sewn things, found things.  my brother turned these tops on his lathe with different kinds of wood.  they work beautifully too.
