Ratchet found it in our mailbox this afternoon..... it was wrapped in a beautiful dark red ribbon...... and inside was a letter from... Santa!
Apparently, the elves have figured out some new technology for Santa to be able to get into the homes that do not have chimneys..... it's a good thing too because Ratchet and Halo were beginning to wonder just how he did it!
What else could it be but a Magic Key?
I am not sure where the elves found it or how they made it, but it is a wonderful antique skeleton key. Hung by the same gorgeous red ribbon with an embroidered tag with the words "Santa's Key" magically engraved on it.
Ratchet was ecstatic and actually squealed at the sight of the key. The instructions were to hang the key on the inside of the front door and Santa's Magic would do the rest.
We've followed the instructions to a tee in hopes that Santa soon will be here.
Every year I make these lovely little scented ornaments...... a different shape each year to add to my collection and to give away as gifts.
I made my first set over 10 years ago and they still smell as fresh as they did the day I made them.
I love the whimsy they create in the room.
I love the scent they hint at as you walk by.
I add them to wreaths, garland and even my tree for fresh holiday scents and a bit of rustic charm.
Something sweet, somewhat simple and natural.....
