    Mix your potpourri mixture in a SMALL crockpot bring to temperature on high then reduce to low or warm for a longer period and less monitoring.

    I believe in Artificial trees. To me if you cut down a live tree it’s no longer live, It’s dead. One year we found a Christmas tree farm that let you cut or dig up your tree. So for $25.00 my husband dig up the tree, we took it home and Steve, my Hubby, got an old plastic trash can from the garage and the potting soil we had left over (20 pounds) and put the tree in that after christmas, we took the tree outside so it wouldn’t get to hot. we when the weather in mid Jan. had a thaw. thats when he planted it. That was about 25 years ago. The tree is taller than the house now. a Beautiful Blue Spruce.

      Vickie – That sounds good…you can’t beat buying a tree for $25 and having it for 25 years. The past three Christmases Rachel and I have bought a replantable pine for our Christmas tree, the first one didn’t make it, but the last two years trees are thriving in our backyard,I’d rather do that than cut one down….thanks for sharing ! – kevin
