i don't subscribe to the pine cone only being a holiday decor thing...seriously. i remember going on pine cone hunts with my grandma on road trips to the mountains and maybe that lends itself to the nostalgia that causes me to love this year round. now i have to have pam hook me up with one of these.
to me this is the perfect example of how this can be a year round part of your home. another great shot found in seattle.
