Christmas Decorating Theme: Rustic Whimsy

With many of us feeling a need to connect to nature and to simplify life, perhaps as a counter-balance to capitalism and the increasing part technology plays in all our lives, the folk and rustic theme remains strong this year.  There was also a heavy slant towards animals and nature which I have called 'Rustic Whimsy'.  So today's Christmas decorating theme is slightly homespun, crafty, folksy and all about nature.  I love how it works with the traditional Christmas colours of red and gold, and the current rose gold and copper trend.  Gorgeous!
