The Sun has returned, the light will now grow, and the warmth will slowly seep back into the earth. Whatever your holiday traditions, my family and I wish you and yours the most beautiful of weekends filled with the peace and joy that the season brings.

Holiday Crafting: Simplicity

December 17, 2010

Funny how time moves so slowly at certain points, and then so quickly at others. Autumn has seemed to fly by, and Winter is now upon us.

One thing that I have tried to notice lately is the beauty in the simple. A fresh sprig of evergreen, a lone berry branch, a bird taking flight.  There is a fresh perspective to be found when nature is at it’s most bare.

In honor of Father Winter’s return, we have spent some time crafting in simplicity.

Vintage doilies become Winter centerpieces.

Lavender and oatmeal combine for the perfect remedy against the brutal cold of winter.

Candlelight and paper crafts bring together beauty and warmth in a new space.

Winter may strip us down to our most basic nature. It may take us deep inside ourselves for much needed reflection, but it also shows us that little is needed to create beauty, and that even when the light is at it’s darkest, we can still create warmth.

Enjoy this last weekend in Autumn, and the turn into Winter.
