Pinecone wreath

When we visited our dear friends Jan & Don in Spokane, WA in October, one of our projects was collecting pinecones to make a wreath. Having lived in Hawaii all of my life, my experience with pinecones are very limited. What I didn’t expect was that these guys were extremely thorny. Working with the cones was painful and I ended up handling them with paper towels to keep from piercing my fingers. But the result was just delightful and since the wreath doesn’t travel well, Jan was kind enough to carefully pack up the wreath and mail it to us. Thank you, Jan — and thank you, USPS — for handling it with care as the wreath got to us completely unscathed! 🙂
