One With Nature

How's your weekend going? I was outside amongst the trees today. It was a bit jungle like with all those thorny vines. I hate those things.

I was collecting these. I need them for the big Thanksgiving feast. No, not for a new recipe. Though, that would be very organic of me. Talk about fiber.

I gave them a nice soaking and they closed up tighter then a clam. Hopefully they will fluff back up tomorrow when the sun comes out. I just wanted to drown any little creepy crawlers that might be hiding. 

I'll show you what I am using them for. Just not today. The days are getting so short and I need to remember to take pictures early so I have light. 

see you later,


  1. Good for you to get rid of the creepy crawlers first....they are scary when you don't.

  2. Thats so funny - yes...it would be a very organic and high in fiber recipe!

  3. You wouldn't want any bugs crawling out during Thanksgiving that's for sure! Haha.

    Can't wait to see what you do with them... :)

  4. I can't wait to see what you have in store for us! Have a good weekend.

  5. Hi its really very nice blog,very useful information..Mobiles

  6. They are kind of cute all curled up...like little miniature ones. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

  7. Really curious what you are going to do with these. Looks like a beautiful area you found them in.

  8. Organic and buggy... you would fit right in...here in CO :)

    Look forward to what you make of them.

  9. I just picked up a bunch the other day as well. Soaked them and then put them in the oven to dry!! My hubby came home and was wondering what it was that I was baking...he just looked at me strange. I can't wait to see what you are doing with them!

  10. That would be some painful fiber, girlfriend!!

    I never wash pine cones. We like the creepy crawlies - they add to the decor - LIVE DECORATING!!

    Looking forward to what you got going in that head of yours with these babies!!!


  11. My youngest and I love collecting pinecones together, it is peaceful time together:) Thanks for leaving your two cents, just wanted you to know that I appreciate it and I only leave comments because I want to, and I don't expect anything back:) I do appreciate you shedding more light why the e-mail is important, so thank you Anita:)

    wondering what you have up your sleeve. not creepy crawlies we know that much.

  13. Wow...talk about roughage!!! LOL.

    Hi Anita...I saw your comment on Sandra's Blog (Absolutely Narcissism) and saw you are from FL and loved what I've seen so far on your blog. We are in Myrtle Beach now but may be moving to FL in the near future. I've got family on both coasts. I love the beach and can't get enough. From CT originally. South only for 3 years. Look forward to reading more of your blog. Thanks. Barb


Thanks for stopping by today. I love hearing from you.
