In an earlier post I mention shopping for potpourri. Let's leave it at that. I have it - some in bowls around the house. Potpourri gives your home a fresh holiday scent. I sense no argument from you.
The story I'm about to tell should serve as warning. POTPOURRI WARNING.
Consider placing your potpourri in objects other than shallow dishes. I'm talking about the potpourri that is small pinecones, twigs, dried flowers, and small chips of wood. In a dimly lighted room, potpourri can be mistaken for a party snack. Ask my Dad, who while trying to chew a mouthful of potpourri asked, "What the hell is this"? He thought it was a little dry.
