Here's all of our stockings all in a row.
I used a creamy linen for the stocking, a striped linen for the cuff, a bit of simple lace, added an initial so Santa would know whose is whose, and a sprig of real red berries for an extra special touch
The mantle is going more rustic with these architectural fragments I found at Round Top.
Lots of chippy goodness here, to add lots of texture to the room.
The candles are some I painted with homemade chalk paint a long time ago.
I added more berries to the mantle. The "Fifteenth St." sign also came from Round Top.
And rather than a heavy garland of greenery, I added this simple strand of handmade vintage lace.
I filled the ironstone pitcher with more red berries from outdoors. Mr. CH asked what MEKLA stood for. I looked at him for a minute, and said, "You're overthinking this, it's just our initials." He should know I'm pretty uncomplicated and am not sending a secret message to some underworld spy. But if I was, I couldn't tell him any way.
Here's a list of the parties that I visit on a regular basis. I might have shared this link at any number of these.
