Lavender Birds (Dickie Bird)
Following on from the success of their lavender fish, these makers have created these charming lavender birds. Handmade in their Nottinghamshire studio from Liberty Tana Lawn fabric, the birds are filled with fragrant lavender from Provence which lasts and lasts. Each bird has a button eye.
Lavender has long been used to scent drawers and linen cupboards and is the traditional remedy to keep the moths at bay. It is also supposed to help you sleep. These make a wonderful hostess present or gift for anyone who loves lavender. The drawer scenters come in a presentation box, so are easy to wrap and send in the post.
Box measures 6.25” x 3” x 1”
Kate Barker started Lime Tree Design because a friend pointed out it might be fun to begin a business and also raises money for charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, Cancer Research UK, Asthma UK, Children in Need, NSPCC, Rainbow Trust Children’s Hospices, British Red Cross, Beaumond House Hospice and local charities. To date Lime Tree Design has donated more than £10,000 to charities.
Her inspiration is wide and varied. It is her mother’s button box and spinster aunts’ jewelry boxes. The colors and textures of the vintage clothes she collected. It is the funky ‘60s prints which filled her childhood home and the vintage finds from the jumble sale.
