Oh Clementine I love you so....
I give you a home in a basket with my favorite tea kettle, and in return you put a smile on my face each morning.Your exciting and bright color, and of course your sweet juiciness all bring a brightness and joy to my day.
I won't take you for granted or waste any part of you, for when I've peeled away your skin to reveal your fleshy goodness I put you here in a little pedestal bowl.
When I introduce you to cinnamon & cloves and give you all a simmering bath, you return the favor by filling my whole home with a scent of.......well.....
I know, you must think I'm the biggest goof ball if you're reading this...but when I was a little girl my mother would always save our orange peels and simmer them on the stove with cinnamon & cloves...so this scent always reminds me of home. My grandparents would also keep a basket of clementines in their living room around this time of year and I would always enjoy them when I would visit. So for me there are many reasons to love a clementine. Thanks for indulging my silly Ode to Clementines.
Happy Friday my sweet friends.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
We have snow in our forecast...my fingers are crossed that it will.
There's nothing more beautiful to me than snowfall.
Hugs xoxo CarriePin It
