Painting the Ornaments

After sending hubby off today to do some volunteer work, I decided to get busy on these little ornaments for the Christmas tree next year.

Starting to put together these little cones I've had for about 2 years now. I've painted them pink and stuffed them with cotton and snippets of pink paper. Just need to put the ribbons on with which to hang them and decide what to use for the decoration on them.

Random Thoughts:

I consider myself in the "wilds" when I can't see the "Golden Arches"!!


  1. I think your pink and white Christmas tree will be a beauty to behold next year, Connie! You are very creative...wish a little of that would rub off on me! Love what you did with the pine cones, sweet!

    God bless,

  2. Sweet !!! :) Boy your tree is going to be loaded with pretties :) Hey, Guess what ? I have the FIRST hp Connie rose ornaments !!! :)

    Hugs :)

  3. Hey Connie. You've been on my mind alot today. I kept saying I need to go by and visit you.

    The artist in you is in full swing! This ornaments are really cute. Can't wait to see the cones finished.

    Lots of hugs to you...Tracy :)

  4. Cute! I hope you show us when they are done! I have one sheet of that rose paper and I love it! ♥

  5. Oh, I will love to see your pink and white Christmas tree. Those cones are really cute. Kathi

  6. I was out shopping yesterday and thought of you everytime I ran across something pink. I cannot wait to see your tree next year! And yes, I agree... if you can't see the golden arches, you are too far away!!!! I used to live in a rural mountain town... 45 minutes to the golden arches!

  7. OOOHH your tree is going to look scrumptious!
