Our Stockings Are Hung….

by the chimney with care, in hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there. IMG_5147

Our stockings are hanging next to the fireplace this year. I used to hang them right on the mantle but there is no room this year. So they are hanging in front of our living room window so St Nick can easily find them anyway. The cool little rod came from Kirkland’s.

I added a garland, some Christmas picks, and clear lights. IMG_5127

This is a stereo console that was given to me after my grandmother passed away back in 1988, I believe. It used to belong to her. :)

How do you hang your stockings?

I hope you guys are having a wonderful time decorating. I love to decorate my house for Christmas. I am also creating memories for my kids that they will treasure as they are growing up. :)

Thank you Susan, for hosting Met Monday. :)

~WOW! Everything is so festive, elegant and beautiful at your home Sandra! LOVE it all!

The wreath hanger you asked me about is a scroll iron hanger and I bought it at Michaels a few months ago. I think it was about 12.99. I hope you find it! It's been a great piece to work with. It's so easy to change the wreath on it.

Enjoy this joyous season! ~Melissa :)

Your stockings are wonderful! We always hang ours on our mantel. When we didn't have a mantel, we hung them on door knobs.

I think Santa will find your stockings wherever you hang them!

Sandra-What a cute way to hang your stockings! Sometimes I am afraid ours will fall into the fire! I also enjoyed your bow tutorial and that your 11 yr. old took the pics! Thanks so much for visiting and your sweet comment!

I'm following you now too!

The stockings look cute hanging there. As for ours...we are having our 3rd strange Christmas. My kids are 20-somethings. My daughter works for Disney and we will be in a hotel room there for Christmas...she will get a stocking filled there. My son stays here, and we will celebrate with him this weekend, he will get stocking stuffers...wrapped. I miss the good old days when they were hung on the fireplace, but kids grow up!

I don't think I have seen one of those hangers before. Great idea and it is pretty. Did you add the decor on top or did it come with it?
Thanks for sharing.
