It Smells Like Christmas

It's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas,
everywhere you go...

Peppermint candy canes
Sweet marshmallows melted into hot chocolate
Cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg

Wood smoke wafting in the air on a frosty evening
Crushed pine needles
Wet woolly mittens on the heat register

Sugar cookies baking in the oven
Fresh cranberries turning into to sauce
Apple cider on the stove  

Wishing you the pleasure of simple joys today!



  1. Smells do it to me everytime I smell something familiar.
    They just take me back to rmemebering, which makes me daydream.
    Smells that trigger memories are Evergreens, spices, and certain purfumes(from all my Aunt's hugs).
    Very comforting.

  2. I'm going to have to bake some sugarfree goodies to get the smell in my house and avoid sugar overload!

  3. Can't say wet mittens are on my list of favorite smells! But I do like the smell of Christmas baking in the oven!

  4. The picture and the smells you shared added simple pleasure to my day. Thank you! Wishing you the same. Your blog decor is always!

  5. Hi there,
