I received a muuuch needed camera for Christmas since my old one broke and was horrendous to deal with anyway. So, I am trying to learn how to properly use all of its awesome functions and features. I hope to be able to begin posts from it very very soon.
This photo was one of the last few I took with camera so-glad-it-died-so-I-could-get-a-real-one. Although, I do appreciate the one year of service it provided. It did its best.
This is Noel potpourri from my favorite bath and body store, Crabtree and Evelyn. I can spend an entire day in that store--at one shelving display! I find the quality of their products to be excellent.
The scent of this potpourri is luscious, and the ingredient arrangement is gorgeous. It is a true forest aroma with hints of musky spices. It is light and deep at the same time. The throw is mild so it lingers nicely without overpowering a room or area, and in fact I use candles with it and there is no competing or interference. The appeal of the scent and the ingredients can go from early autumn to mid spring.
Plus, it is beautiful on display. I put it in a vintage colander and used it as a centerpiece on my kitchen table.
There is enough in a bag to fill a couple of dishes to spread around. They sell the bottles of home fragrance oil to sprinkle on the potpourri to maintain the scent. I also use the oils in my heating vents-only because I have metal vents and can place a drop or two near the top of the vent grate. I do not pour the oil down into any vent of any kind. When the heat blows, it lifts the scent into the room. Just lovely. And easy.
