Happy Holidays, oooh! oooh!

Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday season, however you celebrate!  And how are you celebrating?  We’re planning a quiet day, with a lovely breakfast with ham from the lovely pigs up the road and from-scratch buttermilk waffles (made with FULL FAT buttermilk because why not & that’s pretty much it for me in the planning dept. A dog walk or two and maybe watching Denzel Washington kill scores of baddies in Equalizer (and Equalizer 2) because why not!  Or maybe I’ll do a 180 and watch Greer Garson & Laurence Olivier in Pride and Prejudice.  I’ve got the house scented with Aera’s gorgeous Winter Light, from the 2018 Hygge collection – it’s bringing a bit of the Winter outdoors in, a bit of a Musette Oxymoron (or maybe just a Musette Moron?)  – but who doesn’t love the smell of fresh fir trees and cedar, right?  But it’s better than that Old Reliable white pine seasonal candle.  I thought it was just going to be a diffuser version of that, but I was happily surprised to find a bit of warmth underneath all the fir – it’s elusive but that makes it all the more inviting, as if you’re sitting in your warm, cozy living room…and a beloved suddenly comes in from the chilly outdoors with an armful of evergreens.  Oh!  You’ve got hot chocolate, with a touch of cinnamon, waiting (no chocolate notes – this is just my part of the fantasy).

noble fir, cedarwood, white freesia – what’s not to love!

The house smells marvelous!  Maybe I’ll just sit here and sniff at it and contemplate – again- learning to speak DANISH! so I can go hang out with Claus Dalby.


Hey, a gal can dream!  And it’s Christmas!  Maybe my Christmas Dalby Dream will come true!


Happy Holidays, darlings!

    Merry Christmas! We are sitting by the fire tormenting the dog with the laser pointer toy and laughing our fool heads off at her expense. Tomorrow morning I’m planning on French toast with gallons of maple syrup and lots of real butter for breakfast, then I’ll spend the day baking butter tarts. Candle of the week is the blue Diptyque Baume holiday trio for this year.
