Today I am washing curtains and linen napkins. Crystal at Fairiebees has been posting a little scrumptious tip each day which reminds me to cherish each moment, including doing laundry.

After washing everything using my homemade lavender laundry detergent, I’m using a trick found in the March 1994 issue of Victoria magazine. Pour an herbal infusion of lavender into the last rinse cycle. An infusion is essentially a strong tea.
After my laundry chores, my intent is to sit quietly for a bit and enjoy a cup of tea using yet another idea from Victoria magazine (February 1990), a recipe for Lover’s Tea.
I modified a recipe card I bought at The Vintage Workshop. Right-click on each picture to enlarge and print—I use cardstock for printing my recipe cards.
Here is the tea recipe.
And here are the serving instructions.
