Pink Pine Cones...


(click photos to enlarge)

A picked up four small pink pine cone ornaments
and knew just what they would be perfect for...


I collect old flask shaped bottles
that have turned purple in the sun

but they have no stoppers...


These little pine cones are a perfect fit!


Since I try to refrain from decorating for Christmas
until after Thanksgiving....

This was a great way to play
without really being Christmassy :-)

I am completely pleased with the results!


pink pine cones "floating" on a mirrored lake...
 sweet and sparkly...

Stunning Bella, They look great on the mirror and as stoppers in the bottles. I hate to decorate for Christmas until Dec. 1st. Have a great day.

Darling idea, Bella. They look perfect. I love those old bottles...and they turned that color just from sitting in the sun? Too, too cute! Hugs- Diana

Bella, the pinecones are gorgeous! We celebrate Thanksgiving in October here in Canada so it frees me up to start decorating in November.:)

Bella, those little pink pinecones are about the sweetest I've seen. I've just finished filling a compot with some acorn ornaments, but I mixed in a few pinecone and nut ornaments to fill it out. All of mine are dark brown and green with a touch of glitter. I think this by far a sweeter look. Love it!

I am in love with lavender glass. The more sun they receive, the more color they get. The pinecones look perfect, great idea, Char
