Rustic Christmas

How do you define your style? Here are some 'stand out' examples of what I'd call RUSTIC CHRISTMAS.
Rustic, to me, is defined by use of natural elements, found and re-purposed elements that are sort of a minimalist approach to what was called 'country' decorating about 10+ years ago. The current RUSTIC trend is country refined and simplified, focusing more on the use of 2 or 3 elements and minimal colors and textures. I've always loved Rustic elements in a room. Although I've never lived in a home that I thought could support an entire RUSTIC look, I have always had rustic pieces scattered here and there in my home...especially around Christmas for some reason. The simplicity of the rustic looks seems to marry well with classic Christmas motifs. Not to mention, that if you have a live Christmas tree, you could say that you have the most essential element  to RUSTIC CHRISTMAS decor.  Here are my favs.

I have an old sled up in my rafters that would be perfect for this - maybe the family name instead of a house number though.
