So, even though we are still getting over the sniffles, colds and coughs we spent the weekend being merry and bright!
We made cookies, pomanders and cinnamon decorations to make our home look and smell festive!
Into Christmas decorations!
The next morning we attached a cinnamon stick to each slice of orange with some twine (I wanted to use raffia but had run out)....and we made Christmas decorations!
It is so easy to make a Winter Potpourri to make your home smell like the Holidays!
All you need to do is mix all of the following goodies together and sprinkle with 10 drops of cinnamon essential oil and 5 drops of clove essential oil.
Present it in a beautiful vintage bowl.
Dry rose petals
1⁄4 cup whole cloves
1 cup whole allspice
10 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks, broken into pieces
8 small bay leaves
4 whole nutmeg
3 Tbsp star anise
2 Tbsp whole cardamom pods
I put the left-over orange slices, cinnamon sticks and cloves and some star anise into my glass candle holders.
Thank you dear friends for coming to visit today-I'm so glad you popped in to visit me in my little corner of the world Down Under!
Best wishes always,
Please join me each weekend for the Say G'day Saturday Linky Party!
