decorating...

As you know, I've been a busy bee. But promised myself one holiday decoration a night so I don't get overwhelmed by the holidays (and so it's still fun). This weekend I made a cinnamon wreath for my kitchen.
it. smells. amazing. thinking if I change out the ribbon- this could be a year round decoration. yum.




Here are a few favorites that I spotted at my home ideas. (it's also where I stole the cinnamon wreath idea. here is their photo:)
more wreaths i love? the nester, pewter and sage, rue mag...

scents are one of our most powerful memories and something like cinnamon screams "HOLIDAYS!" what a great idea.

oops! Nevermind! I see the cinnamon stick wreath came from the nester. Helps to read those comments! : )

I like her Dark Constellation Necklace. Anything that has some vintage elements to it, makes me smile. I enjoy visiting your blog, always something exciting and fun going on here. Have a wonderful day!company logo design

Lovely wreaths. I really like the Cinnamon one. Saw it on Susan Visser's Pinterest (first name may be wrong...faulty memory) and clicked to your fabulous blog.

How did you connect all of the cinnamon sticks together? Did you glue them on a straw wreath or did you string them on a ribbon of some sort? love the idea!
