Christmas- Pure & Simple

This Christmas at my house, we are celebrating in a simple, natural style. I decided to mix natural elements with mercury glass and chose olive green as the featured color since it is a true color from nature.

We are going to celebrate the reason for the season and enjoy the bounty that we have been blessed with. So to start, here is a simple crèche on the mantel.

Mercury glass and the pine branches mix beautifully.

These are acorns that were gathered on a nature walk a couple of weeks ago in the woods down at the lake. I just love them-- but I will tell you that I had to freeze them prior to putting them out-- just to be on the safe side--I didn't want any little critters coming out to enjoy themselves in the warmth of my house!

The mantel- a little candlelight certainly makes things more festive.

I just love all of the the textures of the potpourri with the mercury glass.

Sweet angelic candleholder.

Finials glimmering!

Here the pillows are dressed for Christmas!

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and are able to keep it simple so that you can enjoy it to it's fullest!
