pinecones.com. I think I had read about this company in the Country Living magazine and I had already been thinking about using pine cones, but don't really have any nice ones around here so I ordered them.
Here are the adult and young sugar pine cones. I ordered a few of each kind.
This little fellow came from Pier One last year.
I only decorated one regular size tree this year and it is real. I just couldn't handle going up and down the ladder to do the nine foot trees. I love the real tree. It has been a long time since we have had one. Doing only one tree gave me a ton of leftover ornaments so I have place them in different vessels around the house. This large glass hurricane is holding some favorites of mine.
I received this doll ornament many years ago when I used to work a full time job. We would exchanged ornaments at our party each year.
Most of the other ones in here are from the Macy's after Christmas clearance sell one year.
I have also used a lot of real greenery. We have leland cypress trees in the back yard so I have an endless supply of greenery when I need it.
Everything sits on a black tray except the Santa candle holder.
Here you can really see the size of the coulter pine cone on the right. It's huge!
Lots more to come so stay tuned.
