I have always loved pine cones. When we park in a new campground, as we drive in, I am already glancing upward to see what type of pines there are…so over the years pine cones from Oregon, Georgia, Minnesota, Arizona, California, British Columbia, etc., have made their way home with me. When I participated in craft shows my wreaths almost always included cones in one form or another. The days of craft sales (for me) are gone, along with most of my stash of cones, but they still intrigue me.
This last summer there was a bumper crop of cones on our Manitoba spruce trees, so on our fall campout at Hecla Island I filled a bag with the little lovelies to make a wreath just for us. Isn’t the colour beautiful?
Along with the wreath, I have a vase, and a candle holder, both with a pine cone theme, as well as a sugar pine cone.
Well, that’s it for my obsession today!
I'll join in with others at Sandi's Home Day
