Pine Cones ...


Hello my dear friends,

I just love pine cones!

 Small ones, big ones, light ones and dark ones, fat ones and skinny one, long ones and short ones! 
I have bowls filled with them in our home all year round because I think that they are just such a neat creation from nature.

 Recently I had found some little metal pine cones by Tim Holtz at Michaels, that I ended up using one some of my little felt mittens and stockings. I did like them a lot but now I am in love with some other ones that I had discovered on Etsy and they are so very beautiful in my eyes! Again they are again made from metal but quite a bit larger than the first ones I used and I just couldn't resist ordering them. I did so mid October but with the rotating postal strike we were having here in Canada and because they came from the other side of the world, I only received them a few days ago. Seeing them up close, I don't mind the wait that much anymore because their beauty makes up for the time it took them to get here.

And these are the pine cones!


Aren't they just stunning?!
Of course I just had to order them in antique silver ...  


 ... and antique gold and I am beyond happy that I did.


To give you an idea of their size I put them next to a quarter. Not only love their look but also love their size too! Each pine cone measures approx.1.5 inches in length. 

I don't think that I have ever made a Winter themed pincushion since I have been blogging but that is about to change now. I am already working on my newest creation using a few of these pretties and will be sharing it soon with all of you.

 So ... do come back again some time and see what I have been up too.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
