Good things about winter :: pomanders

Don't you feel all Christmassy?  With all this cold weather, wouldn't it be lovely to give the smalls a little gift, invite friends and family over, roast a huge bird and drink eggnog right now.  I'd even go a little tinsel. In fact, I'm close to hauling a large conifer indoors, to decorate and fill the house with a fresh piney scent...  
Showing some uncharacteristic restraint, we'll stick to some winter inspired crafts.  I'm loving Mariah's gorgeous site and found this project filed under winter::making a pomander. Easy for the little ones, they smell beautiful and last for ages I'm told.  A little bit of Christmas in July.  Now, where did I see that egg nog recipe...

  4. Wow I just had such strong flash back! That smell, that prickly feeling when you push those things into the fruit. Yours look lovely!
