The stockings were hung...

     For years we haven't put out our Christmas stockings, because there just wasn't a good place to do so.  Then the other day i'm driving down the street and what should appear-- a shelf with exactly the right number of pegs for everyone's stockings!  It was "country" to say the least.  Matt took it down to the basement and gave it a few coats of paint and hung it in the dining room .  Now our stockings are finally joining in on the Christmas fun again!



     I would like to "shabby" it up when I get time so it matches with the mirror better.  I don't think I will leave it up all year, just at the Holidays.  Right now I have some Christmas trinkets from my past on it. Stuff I wouldn't get a chance to put out otherwise, so I am enjoying looking at it and savoring all the memories that go with those items.  However, I think I can put together a nicer display in the future.  At any rate, something was saved from a landfill that fills a need I had , and cost next to nothing!  Booya!

It's beginning to look a lot like christmas...

This is Jassy's nutcracker collection in all its holiday finery.

Our wee tree trying to look big and glorious!  Note my Mother's wall hanging, which is actually big and glorious!
