please welcome kelsey from pinegate road this morning! she is so graciously sharing with us her favorite object, as well as starting off a brand new series. however simple it is, our guest shares their favorite object. that one thing that they treasure most of all.
” not only do i find pinecones to be naturally and geometrically beautiful, they have a special significance to me. my blog is about my journey as a creative, and is called pinegate road. i think pinecones also have this natural kind of symbology that shows so many different facets, all stemming from one root – and that’s kind of how i’d describe my creative life.
i keep one on my desk as a constant reminder of what i’m striving for each day, but i have pinecones all over my apartment. they live in my non-working fireplace, and even in this glass dome i found at an estate sale. while i’m no interior designer, i find it special to have a little theme running throughout a living space.
this is just your everyday run-of-the mill pinecone. it was made by nature and i think, just maybe, a little magic. i found the large pinecone one day when a friend and i decided it would be lovely to go pinecone hunting in the ardsley park area of savannah. there, the houses are grand, and there are medians in the road where you can find these extra-large pinecones scattered about. it’s pretty amazing. “
thank you for sharing with us kelsey! i have a love myself for pinecones scattered throughout my decor – a perfect little touch from nature herself!
