Of course every fireplace should have the traditional stockings!! I don't remember exactly when or where I bought these stockings but we've had them for a long time. I usually get the angel, Jen the Santa and the dogs share the snowman.
This angel sits on the hearth now but she used to go on the top of the tree until this year when I bought the one that is on there now. The new one has a blue apron that goes with this years tree of blue and white. Next year it will depend which color ornaments I use, to decide who will get the honor next year.
These silk poinsettias are on the mantle on each side of the "fake picture" that covers the TV. I added them to some greenery. I think they go really well with the silver and brown on the frame.
I am a nurse by profession and a single parent to my only child. I enjoy decorating, scrapping, photography, gardening, sewing and travel. I also enjoy my dogs, needle work, cooking and spending time with friends.
