Spit and polish

I collected these pine cones from our garden a while back and am still contemplating various craft options for Christmas...but what of the receptacle?

I found it in my godfather's shed after he died and have neither restored nor used it for any purpose in the house for the last 15 years or so. I think I finally have enough confidence to say that I like it tarnished and as is, what do you think?

I probably have way to many Copperart flashbacks from the 70s to ever allow me to polish it up!!!


  1. 50% of me says leave it;
    50% of me says RUST-OLEUM :)

    (which the Paint Place in Woden and Mitchell also stock some of)

  2. I think you have your Christmas decorations aleady sorted! The copper urn as it is, the pinecones as they are, and just add some fat red velvet bows in the mix, and you have a very Christmassy bowl!

  3. Perfect just as it is!

  4. It's gorgeous just as it is.

    Perhaps I have too many Copperart flash backs too!


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog...I especially love it when I get comments. Have a great day, suzy xoxo
