the stockings are hung...

although not by the chimney (since we don't have a fireplace), they are hung with care. :) i love our family christmas stockings. these were a custom order and handmade by a fellow etsian last year (although she is no longer in business now), handknitted and felted in my very favorite color combinations!





yours as we draw closer to christmas day,

Those stocking are great, but the cabinets behind them are fabulous! I'll have to show that pic to my husband to see if he can recreate them for me:)

So festive! I love the non-traditional colors!
I just wanted to let you know that I used your photo of your beautiful knit food that you posted below for my post about the CPSIA "outlawing" handmade toys.

There is a petition that people can sign and send to the Senate.
Then I realized I should have asked first! I gave you credit for the food and photo-if this is not OK, please let me know!

These are the most beautiful stocking I've seen. Ever. So not the traditional garb. Handmade, natural and the loveliest color combinations - I can see why you love them so...
There are so many! Will they all be filled? That's quite a job for Santa ;) I'll definitely need to hone my knitting skills this new year. That's final. Warm wishes to you.
