With my design business keeping me busy and my free time being spent working on the overall appearance as well as future post planning of my blog, I decided to take some time off. I’m so happy you’ve all been patient and hung in there with me! Thank you!!
While I love a good smelling candle that fills my home with the scents of the Season, it is so difficult to find one that doesn’t contain synthetic scents. So my favorite go to all natural simmering potpourri is the perfect solution.
There are few things that go best with cold Winter days like a pot of soup, chili, Bisque, Chowder -you get my drift- simmering on the stove. There is something so nostalgic about the aromas of such filling the home on those bitter cold days. I have several favorites that I’ve compiled and look forward to sharing with you. This one is my favorite. What’s better is this is so easily doubled and frozen! Perfect for pulling from the freezer, thawing and re-simmering for those house guests I’m sure you’ll be having throughout the Holidays.
Farewell Summer. You were so good to us, with your bright sun-shiny long days. Barbeques, pool time, front porch sittin’ with refreshing cocktails in hand. Fun in the Sun wonderful Summer. Ahhh, sweet sweet Summertime. You will be missed but Fall has just as many wonderful things to offer and so, it is time to move on.
