  1. Hmmmm...I think a sprig or two of rosemary with a posy or two place in a small container and inserted in the lemon (which becomes the vase) would be lovely, too. Do you have one of those little crocks made special for potpourri? I had one, but it is lost. Must clean out the closet!

    1. That would be so lovely Vee. What a beautiful idea and inspiration! Yes, I have a small crockpot, but it gets a little to hot for simmering potpourri all day. I simply let it simmer on the stovetop. It also gives a very refreshing facial!

    2. Oh...that explains the stovetop...I did find the pot today. I found that odd after mentioning it here this morning. Look in my Yellow Pinterest folder for that lemon vase idea. I must put a lemon on my grocery list.

  2. Such a great idea. Those potpourri crocks are wonderful. We have tons of rosemary here and we also have lots of lemons growing.

  3. I bet the aroma was fantastic! I need to plant some rosemary in my garden, but it's so hot lately, I'm afraid nothing will grow. BTW, I made your chicken and black bean enchiladas and my hubby loved them! Thanks, XOXO

  4. Love this! I bet you could add these ingredients to vinegar and it would make a wonderful cleaner. Thank you!!
