Christmas scents


Much stuffing of Christmas hearts and pillows has been done this weekend, so the herb jar has been hit fairly hard. A mix of cinnamon, cloves and rosemary, with a little clementine essential oil added too. The best bit is definitely bashing up the cinnamon sticks, very good for anger management............


This year our little Christmas hearts are made from locally handloomed linen with an embroidered snowflake in red stitching, and stuffed with said herbs. All we need now is jingle bells playing in the background.............

Happy Monday.

I just love all this talk of xmas, I think it is my favourite time of year.

Whilst reading your post today I think I could actually smell those lovely Christmas decorations!!

We are now back from our travels and looking forward to spending the festive period with friends and family. Just a pity we need to head back to work shortly too.

Delicious, I keep dreaming about a white Christmas but I think it will never happen where we live. Your work looks great again.

Love hearing talk of Christmas. I'm just starting to think about it myself. Your hearts are beautiful. Just got my Country Living and saw your mention in the Emporium. Well done. Hope you get lots of interest.
