One of my many obsessions are stockings; handmade stockings, store bought stockings, gifted stockings, miniature stockings, I love them all. Stockings mean “filled with magical surprises” to me. The only thing Santa brings to our home are stockings, (because gosh darnit, I want credit for the rest!) Santa makes the stockings magical. He searches for the perfect little gifts. They are always wrapped beautifully with ribbons and special papers. And they are delectable and tiny and beautiful.
One little fun fact. I put stockings everywhere at Christmas. I hang them from the walls, the doorknobs, nestled in china cabinets, hung from bookshelves, looped through drawer knobs, everywhere EXCEPT the mantel. It’s a funny thing. I had my mantel built to display my stockings! But guess what? They didn’t look nearly as good hung from the fireplace as they do strung across my windows just below the gorgeous garland. It’s a magical view.
I’ll be sharing this week and into next week, the many facets of my stockings. Where I hang them, how Santa gifts them, how I make designer stockings out of recycled clothing. I’ll even show you how I even use those outlet stockings with the annoying embroidered monograms that were mistakes (like from DownEast Home), but a great deal. I will show you how to personalize them without even unpicking the stitches out. You won’t want to miss this week’s view. I promise. Come visit everyday my Instagram and my blog. I’ll have a few downloads relating to stockings to share everyday on my blog that are FREE for a limited time only. Because your true love, me, is feeling generous this season! Come snag them for for a limited time and then another one the next day! There will be 4 total, one today and then Monday-Wednesday. They are great for gift and stocking tags!
Merry Christmas Hugs!
