of vintage labware and lemon balm.

finally remembering to post photos of the sweetest little bottles that james scored from a lab going through a bit of an update. one good outcome of his spending very long days and nights away from me. here they are, in the morning sunshine, all filled up with lemon balm and sprigs of beautiful pink something swiped from the churchyard garden. i hope no one misses them. i think one day i will throw an outdoor dinner party and line a white tablecloth with james’s findings.

    So jealous! I have looked for those and test tubes for years in second hand stores and vintage shops. You are one lucky girl! (It's no fun having your man away though…I hate when Don goes away for work.) xo
