Pinecones + Gumballs

Do you remember a few weeks ago when the hubby and I went away for our Anniversary and we picked up this lovely gumball machine? Well I finally got around to filling it and nothing says Fall like Pine Cones. 
Ok so I actually did have it half filled with chocolate eyeballs for Halloween (thanks for the suggestion Lisa) but we ran out of candy on Halloween and had use them for the kids. First time that has ever happened! Sadly, I never got around to taking a picture of it. It was adorable - Trust me.
What do you think? Pretty cute huh?
I'm sharing this idea on: Metamorphosis Monday, It's So very Creative Monday, Just Something I Whipped up Monday, Your so very Creative Monday, Motivate Me Monday, Make the World Cuter Monday, Craft-O-Maniac Monday, Seasonal Sundays, Nifty Thrifty Tuesday, All Thingz Related, My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia, Somewhat Simple, Show and Tell, Make it Yours, Lucky Linky Tuesday, Passionately Artistic, Strut Your Stuff, Feathered Nest Friday, Favorite Things Friday, Show and Share Day, Fabulous Friday Finds, Fab Friday

I love repurposing things - particularly seasonal things. Great job.

I host a weekly meme called Seasonal Sundays. I'd love to have you post your gumball machine. The linking is open until late Monday night. Hope to see you!

I am going to get the kids' gumball machine out of the closet and do something clever with it. I would never have thought of such a neat idea.
