Sunday Morning Update: I slept on it and now that I’m awake, I find that I am still gripped by pine cone mania. Once I read that you could dust silk flowers by putting them into a bag with dry corn meal and shaking. The gritty meal would knock off the dust but wouldn’t cling to the flowers. I plan on cleaning any giant pine cone I might happen to purchase in the same manner SO DON’T WORRY IT’S ALL GOOD.
Sunday Morning Update 2: I also had the great idea of using spray paint in a hammered copper finish to revive an old ceramic lamp I have sitting around doing nothing. Very economical! Then I will buy a $50 lamp shade to offset my thrift.
For those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter, you missed the warning.
Maybe all those snow-tipped tress in Colorado that I was looking at worked their way into my subconscious, but whatever the reason, today I find myself overtaken by the idea that I should redecorate in a pine cone theme. So I took to the internet and browsed around eBay for a while using only “pine cone” as the search.
I would buy these except I only need one.
I wonder if I’m going to be needing some acorn caps, too.
