Slow Diaries by Clare Yazbeck

When slow living habits became part of my daily life, I started looking for bloggers and some inspiration and one day I found a beautiful blog by Clare.

Sachet de Senteurs Perfume

One day you open a drawer and you stumble upon that small cotton pillow with dry herbs in. It is so nostalgic and smells of all those old summer days, dry hot afternoons, sweet lavender buds and a bundle of old memories. Such sachets tend to stay in old closets or drawers for many months or even years. But what strong scent memories they hold! They remind me of my childhood days, my mother used to sew a lot: from curtains to fixing our clothes and hand sewing was my normal duty during summer.
