Naturally, it's Christmas ...

I'm a big proponent of using natural elements in Christmas decor. Anything worth doing can be done with pine cones and glue, wouldn't you agree?

From windowsill decor to sconce accoutrements, those adorable pine cones are happy design elements of the season.

Rosemary and berries make fun project materials, too.

I love, love little clay pots year 'round. Time to pot junipers and grasses ...

... and little cedar clippings that are naturally aromatic elements for decorating indoors and out. It's so much fun to smell the holidays, too.  Images above via Better Homes and Gardens (left) and Country Living (right).

My husband spent the better part of two weeks in November clearing dead trees on our property, so now we have lots of nature's bounty to use for future building and crafting projects.

I saw a photo of branches sliced and stenciled with a woodburning kit made into a homespun holiday garland. So, I'm now thinking about a zillion ways of using some of our smaller, cut logs for this treatment.

What an ethereal setting for a Christmas gathering. I love the long branch used as a holiday chandelier. So pretty, and so naturally sweet for the season.
