Straight from the cottage: June

June brought lilacs and also purple yarn from the Eden Cottage Yarns‘ yarn club. With glitter! I love getting these little packages. They are so sweet, little boxes with tissue paper with flowers on them. And inside, the yarn, the soap and the image. Einar always want to play with the containers of lip balm and body lotion. I think he, correctly, finds the containers pretty and shiny.

June was inspired by red clover, a field flower very common in Sweden too. Every midsummer flower crown had red clover in them. The night before Midsummer, me and my mum always went up on the hills nearby to pick flowers and make a crown that I could wear on Midsummer Eve. Maybe next year Einar and I will be picking flowers for a crown for him. I’ll make sure to put red clover in it.
