Seasons Greetings

“Seasons” Greetings!

I love the scent and the idea of a rosemary Christmas tree.

I would always use one at the antique shop during the holidays for the visual and aroma effect.

One of my best clients looked forward to holiday open house and what I called the annual Hopefully Classic Rosemary Rub.

What’s the Hopefully Classic Rosemary Rub you ask?

Gently rub the rosemary leaves with both hands for holiday good luck and health, and the fragrance from the tree stays with you- a holiday bonus.

A Christmas tree shaped rosemary tree is festive function at its aromatic best.

Tinsel and Teatime 

hostess-tea-giftTwinings Earl Grey Tea ~ Oro Porcelain Teapot ~ Stoneware Teacup ~ Jo Malone London Orange Blossom Home Candle ~ Ginkgo Gold Foil Notecards

In these hustling and bustling holiday times, taking a teatime out to relax with a cup of tea, author a handwritten note of greetings or thanks to a friend or client, or to enjoy the scent of a favorite candle in a session of aroma therapy is holiday highly suggested.

The key to a great hostess gift is one that reflects a sense of style and ‘with you in mind’ thoughtfulness.

Love your style!
