Pine needles Can Make Some Of The Neatest Things, Can't They?

Some of you may have seen these in an email already, but a good friend of mine, (thanks Janet) sent me these and I just had to share them with you all, this is just too cool. I hope you all have an awesome and blessed Saturday!!

What do you do when you decide to be a poor country folk artist?
With little money (if any) you must be creative. Use your resources.
This artist did just that. What do you find in the mountains of Idaho ?..........PINE TREES. You're thinking something made out of wood......Right?
Not even close. Check out these pictures.
These bears are made from Pine Needles!!!!
A couple of hundred thousand of them in one large bear..
The pine needles were gathered off the ground, sorted, washed, trimmed and hand woven. Over 8 months in making the life size bear!
