5 Wonderful Winter Projects for Seasonal Homemaking

"This is the time of year when we can take pleasure in our earlier labors and
feast on the flavors of spring and summer that are filling the shelves of our kitchen and pantry...

It is the time to nurture ourselves with delicious foods,
to luxuriate in scented baths and to pamper ourselves with tempting sweets...

It is the season of giving, when we can make gifts for our friends and family...

and fill our homes with the smells of traditional spices that are an essential part of the seasonal festivities.

It is a time to look forward, and in doing so,

... we complete the eternal cycle and once again greet the coming of spring."
The Country Store by Stephanie Donaldson

"Out of the south cometh the whirlwind:
and cold out of the north.
By the breath of God frost is given:
and the breadth of the waters is straitened.
~ Job 37:9-10

Greetings, dear ladies! For the new few months, I will be sharing a few pre-scheduled posts (and round-ups) as I prepare for and enjoy a wonderful extended visit with out-of-town family. With that being said, I will not be able to do much online "visiting" and commenting but would still love to hear from you in the comments should you desire to share. Thank you for understanding and have a lovely week!
Love, JES


  1. Enjoy your time with your family, my Dearest, it's the most Wonderful Gift we have !

  2. Oh my, can you believe I've never made marshmallows? Thank you for the reminder and the recipe.
    Have a wonderful day!

  3. This is the second time this week I've read a post encouraging me to make my own marshmallows... I might just have to give that a try!

  4. I hope you are having a lovely time with your family, Jes. You always have so many good ideas for me to read about. Thanks heaps.

  5. I love the idea of the welcome winter room spray.
    So far I have enjoyed being cooped up and have caught up on knitting projects, but that won't last forever as winter is just starting :)
    Great ideas, thanks for sharing.

  6. Sounds like a fun list of projects for the coming winter days.
    Christmas Blessings,
