orange is not particularly a color I like

but sometimes...

I love it

right now in our home

a little orange and spice

oranges and cloves are a perfect combination

to create that delicious winter feel in your home

take a grater to peel the orange a little bit in a simple design and just pin the cloves in there

place the oranges above the fireplace or heating to spread the scent

how wonderful would it be if computers can transfer scent?

I hope engineers are working on that improvement ~ haha

my sweet rose ~ even more in full bloom

I can not get enough of it

and in my craft room today ~ no orange

but fabric IDGRAN TOMTE from IKEA

stay tuned...

~ happy crafting! ~
