Potpourri Pumpkin!




Happy Fall!!!  This is the best time of the year to get creative, bake, make home made gifts, stay inside, light a candle, put on a pot of soup and  be thankful for all we have....especially dear friends.
When ever I ship an item I  love to add a little something something special..my way of saying thank you. Most things just come to me as I go & this is one of them. I think you will like it.
It's different, original...easy to make, really pretty, makes a nice little gift for your child's teacher, a friend or just for you!

Almost everything I make is nature inspired. I try to use what ever I can find here on the farm.
here are some of the things you can use.

cheesecloth, twine, dried rose petals, dried lavender, herbals teas, sea shell.

just cut any size square depending on how much you want to fill up your potpourri  pumpkin, tie it with a natural twin & embellish..that's it...now the best part is..you use it as a tea bag to place inside a tea pot or a smaller one for cup, put one it in your unmentionable drawer or just keep it tucked in your bag to keep you dreaming of Provence all day!

I say make a cup of tea and dream on!
I am calling them my Tea Pourri's!


Simple, functional and  original....for now!
