This first tree is packed full of rustic goodness.  I think my favorite part is the grapevine garland that came from taking apart a wreath!  The grapevines add warmth just like a pinecone garland would. The white snowflakes really stand out against all of the warm neutral color. Check out her blog to see what she has under the tree – I love it!

Birds Nests
