Dec. 5th, 2014 sure has been a long time since I have updated this website!! I have to say, in this Facebook World we live in, the idea of taking the time to go log in and update the website has seemed to be the last thing on my to-do list!! You know that last thing that always seems to carry over to the next day, then the next day...Maybe not, Maybe its just me... I have about 10 of those things that always seemed to get the carry over. Any Hoo... I apologize for my lack of attention. I always think..."No one looks at it anyways..." BUT then...GASP...on of my lovely customers said..."I looked all over your website for your current hours and couldn't find them." So I promised her I would at least Update with the basic Info!!! {PS Thank you Barb for the gentle nudge}

Just to let you in on some upcoming Info:

Treasures Under the Tents - July 24 & 25 2015

We will have Vendor Applications sent out in January. 
Stay tuned for more info!!

Thanks for visiting!! Hope to see you soon!

What a crazy busy time!!! I don't know about you, but I need a vacation! Thank Goodness it is Summer break and school is out for the year. It is a little bitter Sweet, Our Oldest graduated this year, that is really the cause of a lot of my exhaustion. Not only because there has been an evening event of some sort for every club and activity both our boys have been involved with over the last year. Awards Ceremonies, Sports banquets, Band Concerts, and the Parents meetings to organize all those events. Then of course the big finale - Graduation and the Graduation Party. WHEEEEWWWW.........It was a lot. Not to mention the pure emotional roller coaster of excitement, being enormously proud, joy, sadness, exhaustion and an overwhelmingly sense of "where the heck did time go"!! *sniff* *sniff*

Now we are gearing up for the 3rd annual Lavender House Summer Event. We have changed things up and gave it a new name:
Treasures under the Tents
Enjoy a day of shopping with Our fabulous Vendors both New and old. Saturday, July 27th 10am-5pm. Located in the field behind The Lavender House at 767 E Pole Road Lynden Wa, 98264. We are looking for additional vendors for this years Market, Please contact me if you are interested or want additional information. Karen @ or (360)-296-1854.

 It has been awhile since my last post. I always have good intentions, but as you all know life gets in the way.. It is that time of year, Graduation, End of School, Vacations and of course the ICE CREAM SOCIAL!!! We are only 2 short months away and so excited to be bigger and better than last year and of course, hoping for sunny weather. But in Washington, there is always the risk of rain. We have many new vendors and some returning vendors..

I  If you are on Facebook make sure to go to The Lavender House Page and "Like" it. We are going to be doing a lot of drawings and giveaways leading up to the Ice Cream Social.
  Hope to see you all there!

The Lynden Craft & Antique Show

I can't believe that it is already OCTOBER and we are the countdown for Christmas (61 days to be exact)....Yikes!! I always seem to be running behind and never feel prepared for the opening of The Lavender House, but some how we always get things down and have lots to choose from and this year will be no different. I have branched out in my creative hobbies and have learned to solder!!! I am totally addicted. I will have soldered charms and ornaments for the first time at The Lavender House.

As Fall takes hold of the trees and the weather and everyone seems to do a lot more snuggling as the temperatures drop, I have to admit this is my LEAST favorite time of the year, I need sun and daylight...and lots of it. Unfortunately here in the Northwest our days shrink by the minute and night seems to last forever. But as we count the days til Christmas, we also count the days until spring will come again. I recently saw a piece of art that was a snowy scene and the caption was:
Dear Beautiful Spring, Where have you gone?? Was it something I said??? That is how I feel when Fall comes.

I can't wait to see all of you at The Lavender House this year, New friends and Old Friends....and everyone in between. Come join us for cookies, hot cider, and great shopping. Remember BUY LOCAL this year if you can, all the small business owners appreciate the support.  The best thing about this time of year is catching up with all my loyal customers and friends who have supported The Lavender House the past few years.
See you soon!!

Spring break has sprung!!! My 2 sweet boys have the week off. My boys K & T are looking forward to having a lot of time hanging out with their friends, and hopefully getting a little snowboard time in.
Little do they know, I am looking forward to having the spring clean up of the branches and debris that our unusually windy winter brought. With all the rain...they might luck out and not have the outside chores. But....I am remodeling the kitchen of The Lavender house into my work there is plenty of indoor jobs to do also. HA HA...I have all my bases covered.
