My Favorite Chem-Free Fragrance

2 Cinnamon Sticks


5 or 6 Whole Cloves

Add water and simmer.

If you've recently eaten an orange, add the orange peels, too.

To me, it smells like Christmas and I love it, even in the summer.

Speaking of summer, here are a couple pics of my girl soaking up some sun at a friend's bday party.

And here's a photo of Jude from the party.

Happy Friday!


  1. You have inspired me - I just need to buy cloves - but I love that scent too.

  2. The kids are darling as usual! Jude looks so much like you in that picture!

  3. Oh my gosh, I have missed this soooo much!! Your angels are so radiant and Indi's curls are simply angelic!! Your chickadees are just so beautiful and so very sweet!!

    I'm absolutely gonna try that yummy scent and don't be surprised if I put my fave christma c.d. on too! I'm wacky like that!! One month is not enough time to soak up all the joys of Christmas!

    Thanks for sharing this and thanks ALWAYS for the sweet thoughts you send my way! They are so appreciated!!
    Hugs and happy happy weekend!!
