Homemade Spice + Herb Firestarter

It’s finally starting to feel like fall! Temps don’t get too arctic in Nashville (thank goodness) but we are finally having chilly mornings and cool evenings. Growing up our house had a wood stove, and there’s nothing better to feel warm and cozy. We used to run to it in the morning, freezing, and huddle in front while eating breakfast. Somehow in my memory it feels like it was subzero weather!

    What a fun project! I just taught my daughter how to sew for the first time while we made these! Now she is making more to give as Christmas gifts. Thanks for a great idea.

    I can’t wait to put this together. I’ve become a herb collecting freak these past few months, and since I have a fireplace, this will be the next project on my list! I also noticed you mentioned Nashville -it has been 10 years since I moved away from there to California, but absolutely LOVED the fall in Nashville -incredible colors everywhere!! Thanks again for the cool project!!
