Creating a Warm and Cozy Scent for Your Home

This is a delightful and simple way to add an extra dash of “warm and cozy” to your home during these cold winter months. We first encountered this delicious aroma at our friend Laura’s home, and ever since it has been a favorite of ours.

Spice and Clementine Rinds

Combine the following in a small pot:

• Clementine Rinds
• Cinnamon Sticks
• Whole Cloves
• Ground Nutmeg, optional
• Water

Let simmer on the stove, being sure to frequently check the water level and not let it get too low.

Give Thanks - Thanksgiving

Breezy drew this lettering based on Psalm 111:1 with chalk on a framed chalkboard.

Give Thanks - Thanksgiving

In the kitchen, near The Thankful Tree.

Give Thanks - Thanksgiving

“Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
Great are the works of the Lord,
studied by all who delight in them.
Full of splendor and majesty is His work,
and His righteousness endures forever.”

—Psalm 111:1-3

Have a most joyous and blessed Thanksgiving!

P.S. I would love to know what you are thankful for – feel free to share with me in a comment!

The Thankful Tree

Autumn is such a beautiful season – the colors, the weather, etc. More than that, though, it is beautiful to see people give thanks, counting how many ways God has blessed them. And for each and everyone of us living and breathing, that list is unending.

One way we display reminders to cultivate a thankful heart is with The Thankful Tree. This year instead of scrapbook paper we are using wooden chalkboard tags.

The Thankful Tree

For assembling, all you need is:

Wooden Chalkboard Tags (make your own or buy them already made)
Chalk (you can sharpen the chalk with a pencil sharpener)
Glass Jar – gallon (shown) or half-gallon
Assorted Nuts, for extra beauty
Burlap and/or Ribbon, for extra beauty
Thankful Heart (“I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart…”)

The Thankful Tree

The Thankful Tree

“Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon His name;
make known His deeds among the peoples!
Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
tell of all His wondrous works!”

—1 Chronicles 16:8-9

The Thankful Tree

Are you building a Thankful Tree this year? What blessings will you be etching on the ornaments?

Our grapevines are covered in ripe fruit! There’s nothing like sun-warmed concord grapes straight off the vine. Soon we’ll be turning these delicious clusters into grape jelly, sweetened with coconut sugar.

Concord Grapes

Concord Grapevine

“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in Me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.”
—John 15:4-5
