The Stockings Were Hung

Stockings were one of the things I dropped the ball on this year in our holiday decorations. I was so excited to hang one for each of us (pup included!) from the fireplace mantle but I just never found the right stockings. At home, we use personalized stockings hand knit by my Nana. They're stretched from years of being stuffed with gifts, but it only adds to their character. These stockings from Roberta Roller Rabbit and Circa Trade may not have the years of family history, but I'm still a huge fan and would happily hang them from our mantle. Maybe next year!

Do you hang stockings for the holidays? Passed down or store bought? I'd love to know!


  1. Now store bought, but I still have a monogrammed stocking waiting for me when I get to my parents! Of course, that too at one time was store bought. I love the idea of a handmade stocking!

  2. I was looking forward to getting stockings for me and my boyfriend and never found any in time - my mom needlepointed all 7 of mine and my siblings stockings so I have such affection towards these good looking mantle pieces. I loooove the ones you found! Such a relief from all the green & red ones that are so typical. Maybe they will go on-sale and we can snatch them up for next year?!


Thanks for stopping by, I love reading your comments!
