Christmas, Home Made

My December days were filled with projects for Christmas gifts, as always. Certainly not all our gifts this year were homemade, but I so enjoyed putting together the ones that were.  Now that most of them have been given I can give a peek into what I've been up to for the last while...


Lavender Sachets
Sachets

Beeswax Candles

Ahhh, lavender. Such a lovely scent in my linen closet right now. And I love having a beeswax candle "just wike the wadies". :)
Can you post close ups of te calendars? They look like fun. Is it clippings of favorite things from magazines? It's hard to tell in these pictures, but I'd sure love to see more.

I love my lavender sachet and soaps! Thank you so much, sweet cousin. I have the soap gracing the soap dish in my little bathroom and the sachet on my dresser. :)
