Nature - Inspired






I’m originally from Wheeling, WV and am back living here again!  Being here is giving me more of an opportunity to be out and about...enjoying what Nature has to offer. What a better way to celebrate Nature's cast-offs, than to form them into something beautiful to be enjoyed year round.

Losing my job as a proofreader at a patent law firm in New York City, made me realize it was time to get creative again. I went to Art School many years ago and my fingers were itching to get, I started MP Pinecone Designs in January 2009.

Many of my creations are one-of-a-kind.  All of the pinecones are collected by me and sometimes left natural or painted before being assembled into a wreath or Christmas decoration & then, coated with a clear acrylic spray so they'll stay fresh for a long time.  Everything is  NATURE-INSPIRED.

Display the wreaths indoors or outdoors...if out, keep them under an awning & out of the rain. Water will make the cones close up, & even though they will re-open...the integrity of the wreath may change. If a wreath has nuts on it, & your home is in an area where squirrels roam, just be aware they’ll want to eat them!

My HANDMADE SOAPS, CANDLES & BEARD OILS are all thoughtfully handcrafted to reflect the scents and colors I find in Nature and are a perfect

accompaniment to my other creations.

Please let me know if you have any questions, especially about all the   

arts & crafts fairs that I do. Contact info. is at the bottom of the site.
