It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Christmas....the smells, the colors, the sounds, the excitement, the celebration of our Savior's birth. I love this time of the year.
New ornaments on the kitchen Christmas tree:
Orange Rind Ornament Dried Orange Slices
I found these nice dried orange rinds ornaments for the tree. These ornaments inspired me to dry some orange slices which I made into additional ornaments for the tree.
Dried Orange Slices
The orange rind ornaments and dried orange slices inspired me to make orange and cloves pomanders.

Merry Christmas!

Oh, I know I shouldn't try to do anything else before Christmas but I LOVE the orange slices...and how long can that take, right? Hmmm...If I pull out the dehydrator...It's doable, right? Anyway, lovely, lovely pics of your holiday decorating. Now I'm off to slice oranges!!! Merry Christmas!
