Turkeys down,stockings hung!I couldn't wait,I had to begin decorating today ( oh yes, its a process!).I always decorate the mantel 1st,there might be a little tweaking( I'm not so sure about the leopard Santa hat Venus is sporting,she just might look X-masy enough already) but this is just about the final product. Can you tell which corner the tree goes in? Its already up,tee-hee ,this is the before pic.
Those little red reindeer make my heart beat exotic rhythms,do any of you remember those at your grandparents ? The stockings are all vintage (I loves me some vintage stockings!),they are thrifted or from estate sales ,and in terms of ownership they begin with The Big Daddy and on down the line to our kitty, Elvis( yes he is the king).I do tend to be quite anal about stockings hanging the same way. My heart and soul wishes for the sentiment on the stocking hangers,please dear Lord, let their be peace on earth.
So much more to come soon!
