1-4-11 I fell in love with this the moment I saw it. It's a bowl, platter, something along those lines. I think it would be pretty with great big pine cones in it. Unfortunately all the stores selling pine cones at Christmas added cinnamon scent. I can't take the smell, it makes my brain feel like it's swelling. I'm in the woods all the time but pretty pine cones are hard to find. Instead, it sits, looking a lot larger in our small house than it did in the big store, and I have no idea what to do with it. But it's pretty!
