My sweet Mother picked up all of these Pine Cones
for me when she went to visit my brother during Thanksgiving.
Loaded them up in a large garbage bag and hauled them up
from South Alabama. I think this is the first time, in a loooong
time that we have not had Pine Trees in our yard. Leave it to me to
want to use them to decorate, when I don't have them anymore.
While Mom was at my brothers, she visited with his
soon-to-be Mother in Law. They picked a few more small
pine cones from her yard and then she remembered the GIANT
ones she had in her garage. She said she has had them for years,
and could not remember what she had planned to used them for.
So, she bagged them up and sent them home to me!
WOWZA!! They are so big and pretty!
Can you picture them with a lantern or maybe
those mason jar candles...a little fresh greenery stuffed around...
So many ideas...so addicting...
I found these ribbons tied to the top
of one of them, so it looks like she was on the
same track as me...
