Farm Finds

 
Last weekend I decided to take a trip around the farm and collect some fabulous natural goodies to use in my art as well as to decorate the house with.
 

The long leaf pine (at least I think that is what the pines are called) are too young to have any cones on them yet, but when they do they will be big ones.  For now I am settling for these nice normal and mini ones. 
 

 
Last year on Pinterest I found an image where a woman had painted all her acorns turquoise and put them in a pretty jar.  Well turquoise does not go in my house so no painted, yet.  And I couldn't resist the caps, they are a wonderful texture and I have an idea for turning them into old fashioned ornaments.
 
 
I couldn't leave without collecting some exotic looking chicken feathers.  I can't wait until October when the chickens really start to loose their feathers. 
 
Come on Fall, I'm ready for you!

no turquoise wouldn't exactly go in my house either & I have never heard of painting acorns either. Humm...interesting. Cool concept. I love pinecones though!!

I painted acorns (not the tops) pink and fushia, then glued back on the tops for my daughter's baby shower last fall. I still have them.
Possibly would look good gold and such for fall??
I love, love the feathers.
Great finds.
