    Lovely item to share, Lora! However, I’m afraid nothing will alter the conditions Americans find themselves in this year, and actually since 2020. Thanks so much for sending this to all! Sandra

    I do something similar every winter on top of my wood stove but never thought to add cranberries and rosemary. I’m going to try this ! I live in the country and sometimes I worry those country smells come inside, I know we get used to smells and don’t notice them anymore. This is the perfect answer to that issue! Thank you so much, I just subscribed to your blog!

      I love the idea of you simmering this on a wood stove, Stephanie! Enjoy:)

  3. THAT’S what my house is missing! Got the artificial tree up today–finally. Been so busy baking, wrapping, delivering gifts, etc. If I’m not baking again tomorrow, some simmering potpourri would be be a GOOD smell to have in the house! Merry Christmas!

      It’s adding moisture to our air and making it smell good; double winter pleasure!

      Yes, the cranberries give it a Christmas fragrance! I added some fresh snips of lavender and rosemary today, too.
