mini collections : christmas stockingsTags : blog party, collections, holiday 2011, mini .
Good Morning friends and Happy Monday! Are you ready for the blog party to begin!?! I'm so excited and I wanted to start it off with a mini collection of our holiday stockings. As Christmas grows near I am so eager to fill these special stockings. Even before kids it has always been something I've enjoyed doing. I had a few helpers yesterday that wanted to help me out with a good photo, you'll see penny was pretty sure they were blankets worth laying on since I was shooting on the floor. I decided that next year I will remake all of the stockings to be similar in style to Penny's, since they are a mix from many years past. From left to right, the misters (from childhood) was made by an aunt. Wyeth's was knitted by me but it's kinda wonky as this was my first knitting attempt, which, way to jump the gun and try something to hard, ha! The lamb one (mine from childhood) was made by my moms close friend, my brthers have one similar but with different animals. And then Penny's was sewn by me last year, which I love how it turned out. Do you have a stocking? Is it older, newer, purchased or handmade?
I'll be back at 10AM for your first free giveaway for the 12 Days of Holiday Cheer!
