I hope that you are staying warm and have been enjoy this Christmas season! The weather has warmed up here a little, and it's been quite lovely the last couple days. Thank you for your sweet comments on the jolly Santas! I have been busy working on my list of Christmas projects, and I am happy to finish one of them, which are my vintage inspired felt stockings.
I took my own spin on them with pretty felt flowers and holly leaves. I made a couple traditional green and red because there is just something about these colors during Christmas that I do love.
Each have sparkly sequins, a blanket stitch edge, scallop cream top, and silver tinsel all of my favorite things this year.
I also wanted to make a wintry blue and aqua floral one with a white stocking, which is another favorite combination for Christmas colors.
I do love how this one turned out!
And, I also made this pretty one that is a gift for a dear friend. They were all so fun to make and a little addicting, too! I was thinking of maybe even next year having some of these in my shoppe. So, these were my spin on the wonderful vintage felt stockings!
I have been crocheting some of these pretty star ornaments for gifts using this lovely pattern. I really liked how she used vintage graphics to put in the centers of them, so I had to do the same!
This is one of my favorite additions to my decorations this year; my Nana's Nativity set.I have always loved seeing it at her home and it brings so many memories as a kid seeing it lit during Christmastime. The figures are a papier-mache composition, and it's from 1969 made in Japan for Sears Roebuck and Co.
A true family treasure and a beautiful reminder each day of the meaning of Christmas for me!
Well, I have some more gifts and projects to work on this weekend. What sweetness will you be working on? I will be closing my shoppe for Christmas next week, but there is still some time to get any last minute gifts this weekend! All my items come sweetly wrapped ready to give to someone special in your life!
Wishing you all a most lovely and creative weekend!
