In July or August I think about how many months I have to wait before getting our tree. I love everything about the experience. I think that is due to very good childhood memories at Christmas tree lots. But usually the day after Thanksgiving I put a few decorations up before the tree hunting outing.
I made these stocking from vintage grain sacks. I like the rustic feel of them against the shiny letters.
I found these letters at Michaels. I was going add glitter after I painted them metallic silver. But I liked the result after the first step so decided to stop there. I wanted to make them look like stocking holders. They are very light so I used upholstery tacks in front of them to hold the stockings in place.
Angel mercury candle holder. I like her dress.
This simple wreath draws the eye to the molding in my hallway.
This small wreath is sold as a centerpiece. But I added pink striped ribbon and hung above the girls' beds.
One of the my favorite vendors at our local flea market sells things made from antique ceiling tins. I was thrilled when I found this piece to hang on our front door.
I made a few white linen stockings with a frayed ruffle which are in my Etsy store.
And I wait all year to hang my C wreath.
