Its cold this year!! Last year was we had a very balmy December but this year is more seasonal. I grumble about it but in reality I like it because it gets me in the Christmas spirit. I gathered a lot of natural materials while walking in the woods and have had a great time using them in decor inside and out.
Winterberry, holly, grasses, balsam, juniper, milkweed pods in a wooden box on the porch
Wild grasses, Winterberry, Japonica, Juniper and a mushroom covered birch log in a natural pine container make a pretty indoor arrangement
A crabapple branch with lights and glass ornaments becomes a Sparkle Tree
I found these amazing ice crystals on the grasses this morning
And a snowy look at what will be a familiar view if you read this blog often… more white stuff on the way tomorrow
