Orange you glad Christmas is coming!

Today when I walked into my home, the scent of pine from the Christmas tree gave me a great big hug. I love the scents of Christmas! The woodsy smoke of a fire burning, melted candle wax, cookies baking, mulled cider, cinnamon dusted on a fresh brewed cup of coffee...

It's easy to get caught up in the hustle of the season and miss all the beautiful scents of the holiday. If you find yourself rushing just to catch your breath...try this little activity...

Take an orange and some cloves and get lost in the heavenly scent of making a quick and easy...and wonderfully happy decoration. You'll have to slow down for this one! It will make you smile whenever you see and smell it!


The Tree...Before
During
After

Hi Elizabeth! Welcome back from your blog break~I've been on what seems like a year and one of my goals for this year was to get back into visiting my fellow bloggers. It's crazy how busy life can get sometimes

Hope you had a lovely holiday season~your tree was magnificent! Wishing you a healthy and Happy New Year (..three weeks late) :)
