The stockings were hung ...

Nothing says Christmas like hanging up your stocking on Christmas Eve ... then racing down in the morning to find what Santa left.  We always opened our stocking first before any of the big gifts.   There was always a toothbrush, a bar of chocolate, sometimes colouring books, crayons or coloured pencils, socks or underwear, do you remember 'soap on a rope'? ... and ALWAYS an orange in the toe.

Some of these stockings would be nice to open:

from House and Home  Magazine

From Style at Home Magzine
(Crate and Barrel)

(Pottery Barn)

  1. Yes, my sisters and I would eat a segment of orange together with a chunk of chocolate, of course now a'days you can get those cadbury's "chocolate orange", that fits the toe so nicely :-). but the childhood memories are worth more. What a beautiful selection of stockings, we are excited that there will be three on our mantle this year (our son arrives tomorrow). Wishing you a safe and happy Christmas, enjoy your xmas eve party, the gift you made for your friend is beautiful. Kathy.

  2. I like the first one with the snowflakes. We don't really have a good place to hang stockings, so that makes me a little sad!

  3. I like the 1st stocking the best! I lvoe the color gray, so pretty.

    Make sure you stop by my blog, I have a Giveaway going on!!

  4. So many people have such great traditions and memories from Christmas--it wasn't really a big thing in my family, but I hope to start some traditions of my own when I have kids. I think it's good to always have a few small things that you give every year.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment!
