Because you were curious....
These are the Christmas stockings peeking into yesterday's post. I had several requests to see them from my Flickr contacts and my blog readers, so here they are! These are stockings that my mom made for me from an old quilt top that my grandmother never finished. There was just enough to make these for us and I couldn't have been happier with them. I embroidered our names on them and they are, by far, my most favorite decorations every year.
This year, the kids decided that every winter and Christmas figurine had to be displayed on the mantle...together, lol! I kinda like it now that they're up on the mantle and not scattered around the entire house cluttering up every table top and empty space.
This is the one time of year that I am so very happy with my wood walls and dark, cozy colors. During the spring and summer I long for yellow walls and big windows covered with soft, flowing white curtains filtering the sunlight, but in the fall and winter, I love how these rich pine walls and dark fireplace make the house so warm and cozy. I especially love it when we pile on the Christmas decorations ;)
What are some of your favorite Christmas decorations?
