Simple Christmas Beauty
Whenever I go anyplace I keep my eyes open for crafting ideas. So last week when I had a little walk during lunchtime from work it was not unusual for me to fill my coat pockets with fallen cones. They were cold and closed and at work I put them in a basket for a couple of days until I brought them home.
They were dry and still closed when I put them into a clear, glass vase. I intermixed them with vintage Christmas balls and a string of clear lights.
It has only been a few days and the cones have opened up. They were actually pushing some of the Christmas balls out of the vase. They didn't feel they needed to share their beauty with the balls I guess.
My camera didn't capture their true beauty as they appear when I dim the lights and admire them in the evenings real time. Simple...but so pretty. Have you filled your pockets during a walk?
