    Maybe that wasn't meant to be funny, but the way you said it made me laugh!

    One time we stopped at a motel in South Carolina. It was after dark. When we got up at sunrise, I saw hundreds of large pinecones all over the ground. I had brought a pillow from home, so I removed the pillowcase and filled it with beautiful pinecones! I still have some of them.

    I'm going to look for my pinecone stocking holders today. I think I know where they're stored.
    I love the candles but I wouldn't want to burn them I saw some in M&S:

    Along with some Christmas Tree ones:

    They look even nicer in person, and I was seriously tempted, but I just know I'd not want to light them!

    So instead I am going to get some of these:

    which you can replace the candle in and reuse year after year

    I'd love some of these for the dinner table:

    But not safe with the children the age they are - maybe in 4 or 5 years time

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE white Christmas Tree candles!!! I have only one. No, I won't burn it.

    I've never bought a gel candle. Those must smell wonderful!

    Those are pretty. What is the holder made of?

    The candle itself is not a gel one - The holder in the glass is gel with ornaments / berries etc set in it but the candle you actually burn is a normal wax candle that can be replaced

    I'll be putting yankee cinamon and apple scented candles in it

    I'm not sure tbh, looks like some sort of clay or possibly china

    I'm sorry. I should have said something. I see them everywhere: Meijers, Walmart, JoAnn Fabrics, etc. I even have some. My husband loves the scent.

    No scented ones here Mike ... I bet they smell 'delicious'

    Have seen some pretty pinecone candles but they're not scented.
