simple christmas

Sometimes, a little bit really does go a long way.  For me, this is especially true when it comes to decorating for Christmas.  Strings of white lights, fresh greenery, bowls of ornaments, baskets of pine cones, mercury glass and lots and lots of candles make a strong, yet understated, impact.  Most of my Christmas decor will be coming from my yard this year, with a little help from spray paint and my hot glue gun!  Here is some beautiful, simple inspiration to wet your decorating whistle this Christmas:
