Since I'm stuck in the house with Brad during his recovery, I figured that I should make myself busy and start the spring cleaning. That way, when the nice weather shows up, I'll be out the door. So I find myself deep cleaning the frig, crawling on my knees cleaning the baseboards, and yes...washing pinecones.
Pinecones are a no-brainer decoration for me. They are free to pick up anywhere and I use them in lots of ways throughout my house. This batch sits in a coal scuttle by the front door and over the winter they got ridiculously dusty.
