What fun to put things together. Especially when it is old stuff that you have had around for years. I made many trips to the back yard for greenry..didn't matter what tree it came off...it was beautiful. In our front yard is a huge old pine tree that my husband planted over 40 years ago when he and his late wife bought this home. It has now grown very tall and has HUGE pine cones. I am out every morning to check for new fallen ones. I have baskets of them everywhere. They were a delight to use around the house.
