I forgot that Christmas my son made closet cachets for all the women in the family. I bought oranges and then gave him cloves. He studded the oranges with cloves and then we tied a string around them. He loved giving things he had made.
I always did that as a kid growing up. Every year we’d wrap some ribbon around oranges (we only saw oranges around Christmas time back then!) and then cover the orange in whole cloves and hang them in the closets and all over the house. Great memory!
