A Natural Christmas

Here are some scenes from our Christmas holiday. Our holly tree looks most beautiful at wintertime with thousands of bright red berries. And those pine cones? I'd say they are the easiest DIY Christmas decoration. We had collected a selection of pine cones years ago for underneath our tree, and this year decided to spruce them up with some gold spray paint! They ended up looking so good that we made silver ones as well! I love handmade touches to Christmas because they instantly add thought and stories into your rooms. And, people won't believe that you made them! Have a merry Christmas!

Much love, Vivi
