Thanks to the miserably cold, rainy weather on Monday, I didn't get a chance to take the rustic photos I'd been envisioning for this week's You Capture. I was at a loss as to what I could do, so I looked up rustic on m-w.com to see if I could glean any ideas from the definitions.
Unfortunately, nothing in my house is made of the rough limbs of trees, nor do I really own anything that is characteristic of country people. So I looked further and saw that plain and sturdy are synonyms of rustic, which at least gave me a start.
I love Willow Tree angels. Love them. I have the entire Willow Tree nativity set, and finally, FINALLY, I found a spot in my house where I can keep it up all year long. Because it's just too pretty to only have out once a year, you know?
My favorite part of the nativity set has to be the stars. They're very plain and simple. They're not shiny, they have a rusted finish, and the edges are a bit rough, but they're perfect. They're plain, simple, and sturdy, but they hold so much meaning.
