the organic wonder of nature.

Snippets of holly from the blooming trees outdoors share their loveliness with my kitchen counter and newly appointed coffee bar in the butler’s pantry.

A few extra sparkly ornaments make the woven fruit on my kitchen table sing.  These seasonal faux fruits are a personal favorite.

A last minute change in gift giving strategy leaves me with some antique fishing buoys.  Their lovely sea green color couldn’t be enhanced any more appropriately than with a simple gathering of seashells.

The colors and elements of nature are the richest of gifts.  May the quiet beauty of nature grace your home as we welcome Christmas into our hearts.

Thank you for visiting today 🙂

    Diane, the thing I ALWAYS love about your creations is that they’re so simple, yet hugely effective.

    You ROCK, girl!

    LOVE them both. The holly branches are so sweet and touching.

    Wishing you and Cristybella a Blessed and Merry Christmas!

    And thank you so much for being in my life.
