Hey. Everyone. Meet the Lovely Miss Lavender!

For highly personal reasons having to do with its rather miraculous healing properties, my daughter Tessa feels a strong attachment to lavender. The scent is perhaps her favorite. So when it came time to decide on a name for her blog, she settled on A Lavender Sea, the name being a metaphor for the vast ocean of desirable objects–mostly of the vintage variety–out there waiting to be discovered by some enterprising young woman–i.e., her.


Her love of all things vintage makes me smile, as does her new blog, which highlights her quest to search out the old, the forgotten, and the beautiful–by turns.  Notice the vintage glasses, plucked from a store in Vienna this summer, then fitted with prescription lenses.

Our new blogger, seated in a dainty, pink chair on Riera Baixa, a street laden with vintage stores in the Raval district of Barcelona.  She particularly loved a store called Lailo, about which she blogged.

Just discovered your blog through a Blog About Love. I have been enjoying so much reading these past posts, and had to comment on this topic. I just helped my son today create a blog that he could use to share his budding love of photography. I’m excited to read more of your blog – you have a wonderful way with words that I just love. On a side note, your post about blogs about parenting teens really resonated with me, and I appreciated the inspiration. Anyway, thanks for creating such a lovely blog, and again, I look forward to reading more.
