Fall is my most favorite season for several reasons. I Love being able to put on a chunky sweater with my jeans and sit outside on my porch swing with yummy coffee ,a good magazine and relax. I love the sound of crunchy leave rustling down the street. I love the smell of a fire burning in someones fireplace, ( especially mine)! I guess this is why I LOVE to give gifts at this time of year . Its such a relaxing time of year for me. No stress, no rush, no crowds. So her is what a few of my dear friend are receiving this month. A little galvanized mini tub that I had to patina. It was originally way too new looking.
A tube of Honey Shea Body butter...
A pumpkin spice scented votive candle that I adorned using a crystal and silk ribbon. I just threaded it through the wholes on each side and tied it in a pretty bow in the back...
And a little jar of Pumpkin Papaya facial mask. Yep I made it from scratch! I got the recipe on line and mixed up a batch. I must admit it works amazingly. My face was so soft afterwords. Just apply and let sit for 10-15 mins. and rinse.
