  11. Ohhhh love those silver buckets. And I love the pinecones hanging on a simple satin ribbon. Thanks for sharing these pics. Barb

  12. Beautiful! I am going the simpler, more natural route myself this year. I used those large pinecones on our stairway, and I am loving the look. I posted some pictures yesterday.

  13. I am trying to simplify all of my Christmas decor this year. I am using white , red and a touch of gold. I am looking for some free greenery to put in amongst decorations, but that's about it.
    I love the inpirational images, simple can be so very beautiful, done well.
    Thanks for your lovely comments on my granddaughters room, I really appreciate your opinion, my friend.
    Hugs, cindy
