This week’s WFMW has an Entertaining theme.
I love to create a cozy atmosphere in my home, especially when people come over. A burning candle is part of our everyday life.
There are lots of inexpensive ways to add a lovely scent to your home:
~ Keep a pot of simmering spices on the stove
~ Wash all of your linens in this fabric softener & they will smell like warm vanilla sugar
~ Toss pinecones, orange peels or cinnamon sticks into the fire
~ Sprinkle peppermint oil or vanilla on cottonballs and hide them around the house.
~ Tuck a perfume strip from a magazine into a drawer or cabinet
~ Sprinkle some cinnamon inside your vacuum cleaner bag
~ Toss a fabric softener sheet into the bottom of your trashcan after you empty it
~ Make your own Febreze with 2 cups warm water, 1 T baking soda and 2-3 T fabric softener – test a small spot first before using
~ Add a couple of drops of essential oil to a box of baking soda to make your own carpet deodorizer
~ Fill a basket with scented pinecones – I fill a planter on our porch to greet guests with a cinnamon-y welcome
What do you do to make your home cozy?
