For the Love of Pinecones

What is it about a pine cone that fascinates me?
When I think of a pine cone I think of Christmas & decorations
and all the things I can do with them.
You can paint them silver & gold, glitter them, turn them into a fabulous wreath,
use them on your Christmas table like I did below
or just place them in a bowl and sprinkle them with essential oils.
I can smell them already!!!!
Thank you Isabel for the pic of my table :)

Mike and I have a ritual during hunting season. He watches for deer and elk
and I look for pine cones.
I have him trained pretty well.
We will be driving in the Forrest and low and behold on the side of the road is a slew of pine cones. Of course we are at 4000 foot level and its snowing like a dickens, but he always thinks of me when he says "look, there is some more of your dumb pine cones" that's my queue to get out :)

Do you decorate with pine cones. I would love to hear all your ideas!!!

Also, just a reminder that the Monticello Old Fashioned Christmas Show at Monticello Marketplace is still going on until December 27th.
Us junkers are still bringing in wonderful junk. Be sure to check it out.
Hope you all have a FAB weekend!!!

Another thing we have in common...our home is called Pine Cone Cottage. From the tiniest to the biggest I love them all. I usually have something around with a pinecone on it but at Christmas I really bring out the cones and put them everywhere.

I too love pinecones. Maybe from all the collecting my sister and I did as girls.
