I love the smells of Fall. I have a decorative bouquet of flowers that I bought at a garage sale for $4. And a table for $10. I might bring it in once it freezes outside so it won't break. The glass table was such a great find and the flowers look so good on it, but they are missing something.
I found a bunch of incense the other day, and I took one stick of it out of the package. For some reason, I thought of the bouquet on the glass table. I put the UNLIT incense stick in the bouquet and I pushed it into the foam at the bottom of the bouquet. You have to be careful or the stick will break. It makes the artificial bouquet have a strong smell, I am so happy with it.
I have decided I am going to do that when people come over, it is an easy way scent the air, in a frugal way, for company.
Happy Fall Season!

A nicer way to fragrance a room and much safer than those horrid chemical plug-ins is this handy tip. Open a packet of incense sticks and pop a few into a little vase. Decorate it if you wish.
I used an old glass pepper pot and put some ribbon around the top. I have some lavender by my bed and some sticks in a vase in the hallway and in a decorative vase in the lounge. I don't even need to light them to have their scent in the room.

I visited my friend and we lit an incense just to enjoy the pleasant smell, no other reason as we don't smoke. I was hanging out talking while she cleaned her house. After about an hour, I wondered aloud if the incense was out and turned and saw this gravity-defying ash trail! With God, all things are possible!
