One of the best things about working in Wishful Living is the smell. I know that may sound weird, but seriously. Right now when you walk into the store you’re enveloped in the smell of fall. It smells like cinnamon buns, warm hazelnut coffee, and warmth & coziness. This smell reminds me that the holidays are right around the corner and gives me all of these warm and fuzzy feelings about the changing seasons!
These Indonesian Cinnamon Bowls and Clove Boxes are the next things to grab my senses. Not only are they absolutely beautiful but they smell divine. Obviously, the name says everything. End cuts of cinnamon sticks line the inside of these plates and bowls and make the perfect piece for display or the perfect way present your (already delicious smelling) baked cookies! The Clove Boxes are just the same in that they give off the most faint, delicious smell. I would use one to store jewelry, but they are the most precious little keepsake boxes and could be used for anything. They would be such a great way to wrap a small gift…jewelry, perhaps? Each and every Cinnamon Bowl and Clove Box was completely handcrafted in Indonesia.
I have never traveled outside of the country, so I can only imagine what it is like to be in Indonesia or Thailand. Being in Wishful Living I smell incense, the boat wood, and the air from the sea winds. It is what I imagine the smell of these countries to be. It feels like I get to travel every day. ~ Nikki
