licking flames, crackling wood and toasty feet -- there's nothing like a roaring log fire

DIY Scented Pinecones - Use only opened (and therefore seeded) pinecones.  Bake on foil lined cookie sheet at 200 for 30 mins to kill the cooties and melt off the sap. Cool completely.  Throw in plastic bag with 20-30 drops essential oils of choice.  Seal and let sit for 5-10 days (patience!).  Will last for years.  Thank you @Peaches!
