My true love gave to me, EIGHT pine cones, SEVEN vessels of ornaments, SIX Fraser fir arrangements, FIVE Mattie Windsors, FOUR scrabble boards, THREE burlap stockings, TWO strands of wine cork garland, and ONE monogrammed wreath for our front door.

Jed, Mattie Windsor and I collected these pine cones during an autumn walk through Tanglewood Park.  With the addition of a piece of twine, they make lovely ornaments to embellish our banister.
