A Natural and Simple Christmas

I love the glittery lights of Christmas, and the glow of reds, and the sparkling golds, but I also delight in simple touches that make me appreciate the bare branches and the awesome whites and the few remaining greens of the season.

Newsprint is my wrapping paper of choice. I still remember getting a gift form my uncle, whom I absolutely adored growing up, and it was wrapped in newspaper...can't even remember what the present was, but I though he was the coolest just for the wrapping paper. And I admit to feeling just a little as cool myself whenever I wrap up a gift in newsprint :) You can check out more newsprint inspired Christmas decor in a recent article I did for Apartment Therapy. 

Oh Branches, oh branches, you get me everytime.

And burlap, you're a runner up in my heart.
