Pinecone Tree Workshop (Sold Out)
Pinecones are beautiful gifts from nature—the unique crafts that can be made with them are virtually endless. In this workshop, we start with a sturdy paper cone and then apply a beautiful assortment of cones to it. And your lovely little tree can be preserved forever with a coat of protective gloss. Other options are to leave the tree natural, or add a little sparkle or a few mini-decorations. And maybe the flow of creative juices that emerge as you work could lead into other pinecone or holiday crafts. A great way to get your holiday spirit going! All supplies will be provided, however you may bring your own glue gun.
This class is great for adults and children 12 and up (we will be using hot glue guns). Tea, cocoa, and Christmas cookies will be served.
Pre-registration is required as spots are limited.
$30 Member, $35 Non-member
(If you are working with a child or grandchild on one tree, there is a $5 participation fee.)

(May 15, '15)
It’s not often anymore that my posts fall on Garden Bloggers Bloom Day and I’m thrilled for the excuse to post endless pictures of what’s happening on the grounds right now. The daffodils have pretty much gone by, except for the extra-pretty latest ones, but spring is ready to move on and so am I. May […]
Stop and smell the daffodils
(May 08, '15)
Of all the seasons, spring is the one that puts every sense on high alert. We’re all eyes for the colors, have sharp ears for frog and bird songs (we heard the orioles this week), and those of us not plagued by allergies have been breathing so deeply to catch every scent we’re getting lightheaded. Or is it […]
The Trip on the Lusitania
(May 01, '15)
In April 1910 Bessie and William McKee, with Marjorie and 11-year old Augustine, took a 2-month long trip to Europe taking in the major cities and traveling first-class all the way. They sailed on Cunard’s R.M.S. Carmania from New York to Liverpool, England, where they were met by their own chauffeur, Krohe, in their […]
