Found these treasures on our walk today:
Hmm, what to do with them? I have a small craft project in mind for the smooth river stones, which I found scattered on the sidewalk in front of someone's house down the street. The sidewalk is fair game, eh? The pine cones - well, who doesn't need a few extra pinecones? The Bradford Pear branch now lives in a small jelly jar filled with water on the kitchen windowsill. But not until after the little one was quite enamored with it for awhile. Oh, the wonder of a child!
