New on Simply the Sweet Life are Seasonal Themes of my favorite things! For spring 2019 I chose lemons, lemon love!
I’ve had a life long love of lemons. When I was very young around 4 or 5 when I went with my grandma and mother shoppping I would always ask for the plastic lemons with lemon juice in them for my treat. I love lemon yellow and and butter cream yellow colors. I love to scent of lemons and lemon essential oil.
To start off the Lemon Love Spring here are some of my favorite lemon things!

So many more lemony good things coming throughout spring!
I'm in search for a bed frame or a nice headboard. It's been a while since I've had one. You know, it's just one of those things on your list that gets pushed back with other more pressing things making their way ahead on your budget. I finally decided I need to just get one. Choosing one I will like for a while is the trick though. I like the idea of a sofa upholstered headboard like the one pictured above. It's from Wayfair and at a great price too only $169 for a queen.
I also like this bed frame from Joss and Main. It costs more but it has the full frame with a low foot board that I really like so I can sit on the end of the bed. I like the combination of the darker wood with the linen colored upholstered headboard. It's still a great price at $285.95 for the queen size.
There is just something about a spindle bed that is enchanting and classic and almost fairytale like. Do you like the gray color shown above or the navy here on at One Kings Lane?
I'm off to find the perfect one. Wish me luck!
My little herb garden is coming along nicely. It's a first year for most of the herbs and second for a few of them. This is the dill. I am letting it go to seed so I will get more next year. I am growing for home made pickles.
This young lavender is for drying and tucking away into drawers and closets or possibly a hot bath to relax the muscles.
I am so happy with the basil. It is the first herb plant I have grow from seed and it's getting bigger than the plants I bought at the farmers market. I even planted it late.
Thyme has always been one of my favorite herbs to pick and rub in my hands for a fragrant treat. I have two varieties including lemon thyme.
Spearmint is to dry for winter teas to wake me up in the winter mornings.
I also have sage for Thanksgiving stuffing, oregano to add to a good tomato sauce, peppermint to mix with the spearmint and some chives too.
It has been a joy to be able to walk out the back door and pick some fresh organic herbs while cooking. Next year I want it to be twice or maybe even three times as big with many more herbs added.
Do you have an herb garden?
