Goodbuy nasty bugs

I don't know about you - but I hate it when I pull a favourite item of clothing out of the wardrobe, to find it full of holes. Last Summer we had our first infestation of nasty, clothing eating bugs. Grrr. So today when I was snipping some cuttings off the new lavender bush, I also decided to harvest some of the blooms, and put them to good use!

The first one I made I tied a long loop (to hang over the coat hanger) and then tied it around the bunch of lavender and finished with a bow.

The second I just tied it in the usual way. I also left lots of foliage on it since it also has quite a pungent smell. Gotta keep those nasties off!!!

Other things I have implemented are little drawstring bags with either cloves or cinnamon in them. Mmmm. Pulling out a sweater never smelt so good!

Linking up here today.


  1. Great idea to use some of the lavendar I have blooming now! thanks for the idea!

  2. Great idea, and I bet the scent is nice even if you don't need it to keep bugs away.

  3. Hmm.. I can imagine that yummy smell. ;)
    Thank you so much for linking up and for leaving such a sweet comment on my last floral friday post!
    I hope you've had a good start into the new week!

  4. Definitely going to do this to prevent damage this year. Those little bugs will drive you crazy and who doesn't love the smell of lavender.
