"Bertha Reppert was a brilliant, fun, kind woman. She founded The Rosemary Shop in Mechanicsburg, Pa. in 1968. For many years when I was making an Herb Wreath or just wanted some lovely scented oils, I would go to her shop. Mrs. Reppert was a world renowned herb expert and has been referenced in many books on the subject. Her family continues the shop and it is pure delight to visit. There are events every month during the year from creating your own Fairy Garden to creating your own Herb Charts! Visit their web site TheRosemaryHouse.com and if you are ever in the area visit the shop. This little bag is for you to fill with fragrant herbs and hang on a door or window to brighten your day and a way for me to honor another woman!"
You can purchase this little herbal tribute at The Silver Needle (scroll down about 12 projects) and also on House of Stitches, or perhaps at your local craft shop.
Thank you, Dianne, for sharing this with us! What a fun little discovery with a lovely tribute to mom, the shop, and her love of herbs. She touched many with her compassion and energy and her desire to share her enthusiasm about herbs.
