This recipe is amazing! I did a bit of my own variation but I think you can get the general idea. If you like lemon poppy seed then you can appreciate this. Once you get the bread done the glaze really adds a great hint of lavender and vanilla.
2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. milk
1 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. grated lemon peel
1 1/4 c. sugar
2 tbsp. poppy seed
(1 tsp. salt, optional)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom only of 4 (5 3/4 x 3 x 2 1/8 inch) loaf pans.
In large mixer bowl combine all bread ingredients. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed (2 to 3 minutes). Pour into prepared pans. Bake 32 to 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Put 1 tablespoon of butter and 3 tablespoons of milk or half and half and 2 teaspoon Lavender buds in a small sauce pan. Bring to almost a boil- turn off- cover and let sit for about 2 hours. Strain off Lavender buds. Next in a small mixing bowl blend 1 1/2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, a dash of salt. Add cooled butter and milk mixture. Stir till all is dissolved. Pour on bread.

4. I got this little shelf for a dollar, its black but so lovely!
5. This is an Ikea chair. Not my typical but we need some more seating in the living room.

7. I always wanted a tan globe and one day we found one! Cant forget the adorable fox!

Hey Love Muffin, and hello people of the interwebs! It's come to my attention that my awesome ceramic(?) wizard has once again been omitted from a post made by Meg. So I've decided to acknowledge his presence! You can see his brilliance in the bottom right of the sixth image! Upon his wizard tower which is a gift for defeating the possessed caterpillar pot of hideousness. (There's a post about that on here! I promise!)
