Happy New Year 2016

(sharing with you some views of Home and New York City 2015)

And now let us welcome the New Year
Full of things that have never been.
-Rainer Maria Rilke

Times Square New York City 2015

tea time at home,  using the table cloth I made.

St. Patrick's Cathedral 2015
The Christmas Tree in front of the art wall I made in 2015
infuse the scent of the holidays all year round

There are numerous ways of naturally scenting your home. 
I like to keep it simple, so I only like to use about 4-5 ingredients at a time. 
In a small pot put in 3 cups of water. 
10 cloves, 4 cinnamon sticks, the rind of an orange, and a few orange wedges. 
Let it simmer and enjoy.
That is the super simple version.
But you can also use any of the ingredients below for your own custom blend.
vanilla extract, lemon peel and slices, tangerines, cranberries, star anise, ginger, or nutmeg.
