Here are our stockings hung on the dining room mantle. A cousin of my dad's made mine when I was just a wee child. You just don't see that kind of beading and felt work anymore.I love this little pine cone elf. The little Santa is the smallest of the set of nesting Santas from the tree.
I got these cool really big bags at IKEA in Atlanta back in October. They are great for hauling quilts or lots of Christmas presents. You can tell how big they are as they cover up my fireplace.
