How long do they last before you have to throw them out?


Emily said...

oooooh, pretty!

And we got the most marvelous surprise in the mail yesterday.

letters from this family. Everyone joined in with prayers and colored pictures or wrote letters to my daughter. Her smile was SO big reading them.

I told her....Isn't it amazingly awesome being a Christian? It means you have family that prays for you even if you've never met them!

Sound familiar?

I feel blessed. thank you from the bottom of my heart.

p.s. expect a little note from Beth too!

Pomanders smell so good! And they look so pretty in a bowl.

Hey Kimmie,

These are beautiful! I'm hopefully going to try them. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Stacy;

Oh they last forever, or until they get so dusty that you want to chuck them.
I rotate them around in the bowl for the first month or the fruit has yet to dry out totally. I think the rotation helps! (especially if you chose to show them off in a bowl..on a mantel displayed singularly, you wouldn't need to rotate them).


Shawnda said...

They look GREAT! I think we might have to try this! : ) Thanks for the run-down in how to do them!!!! Can you use clemintines or do they have to be oranges??

Kimmie said...

Hi Shawnda

My guess is no on the clementines, I think there is too much air space between the fruit and skin...but hey, you could is smaller, so it would be faster.

OH OH!! I LOVED doing this when I was little, but had forgotten about it. My girls will absolutely be thrilled! THAnks for the reminder! They look great...and I DO remember that they smell amazing :)

Very nice! I bet your house is smelling yummy.

Really it is very beautiful picture, the pomanders with dry pinecone, fresh slices orange and the proportional coloration bowl, they create a really christmas composition.
I imagine how many beautifully they smell

Shawnda said...

Thanks for your response, Kimmie! I kind of guessed you'd say that ; ) I was hoping to do them today, but guess I'll have to wait to get some oranges! ; )
