Well i live in a small town in california called redlands, i moved here but i still consider it my hometown.  When people think of redlands, they usually think of red dirt and oranges. so, heres a little of each!



so here it is  its a jar filled with wax with orange peels in it, it reeks of citrus!



well on the bottom is actual red dirt from redlands and the green things on the front of it are orange leaves from an orange grove right next to me!



well it isnt much but its in my room right now and i just LOVE the smell of oranges it just radiates.

Reminds me of this wonderful little town i live in

That's lovely ! The wire and beads tree is great ! I like the smell of citrus so much. I spent 3 months in Palo Alto (CA) 13 years ago and still remember the lovely smell of orange and lemon blossoms in the garden where I used to live. It's a very nice remembrance. Thanks for for bringing it back tonight with your project !

This is so great!
The colours of the sand and leaves make it so vibrant.
I use orange and lemon essential oils in my home because they are supposed to make you feel happy.
