plant a tree
For the past couple of yrs I have kept an inspirational "tree" in my house. Well, it's not really a tree. It's actually cool branches that I find, put in a decorative container, and hang with sachet ornaments that I make. I think that every home should have some sort of fun or silly thing in the decor.
If you are wondering what are in the sachets... I usually do one of two things. I either fill them with dried herbs from my garden, especially rosemary. Rosemary is so great and has such a wonderful strong scent. I also usually add a complimentary natural oil of some kind to the herbs. The other thing that I do is use organic buckwheat hulls (I have an abundance of these) and I scent them with natural oils. I like cinnamony stuff, vanilla, and orange oils.
Here are some pictures of some that I made in the past....
This next one was my favorite and I wish that I still had it. :(
Another idea would be to make a FAMILY TREE. Make a special ornament for each member of your family. The ideas are endless....
