VINTAGE CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS

Oh, dear! The weatherman is predicting a major snowstorm tomorrow (Saturday) night for the northeast of the U.S. Sunday will be a good day for baking some Christmas goodies!

I picked up some last minute stocking stuffers this morning after my mammogram (ouch!), then my niece drove out from Boston to have egg salad sandwiches for lunch! That's a nice segue to show you my vintage stockings!

This first one I bought because I believe it's the design of the one I had as a kid. Unfortunately, mine was ruined by being colored and written on (by me!). Even though this one is a genuine vintage item, I was so surprised to find out how big it is when it arrived - it's a whopping 26"/66cm long! Much larger than the standard sized 17"/43cm stockings.



My sister gave me this kids snow shovel when she moved this year. I was so excited to get it!

Those vintage stockings are really cool! The Scandinavian print of the little girls making cookies is precious!
