...and the STOCKINGS were hung by the chimney with care....... hopes that St. Nick soon would be there.....

As promised, here are our stockings and mantle decorations. I really like this stocking hanger I bought a few years ago at McIntosh (a small, arts/crafts festival in our area). The hooks that the stockings hang on are upside down candy canes; how CUTE is that???

And here's our mantle with a close-up of the garland, which I also LOVE!!! It's really thick and just screams "CHRISTMAS!" It has red berries, large pine cones, pine leaves, and Christmas garland interwoven into it. I bought it a few years ago after Christmas of course, (hello SALE!).

And a picture of the garland on the mantle from further back......(since I know someone will ask me about the pictures on the candle holder, yes, those stay there year-round. They are of my boys when each of them were 2 years old).

Wow! This was a short post! I guess to make up for the long one I did a few days ago. Hope you enjoyed touring the stockings and mantle decorations. Still to come are the rest of our trees and the outside decorations.
