My sister and I are 14 months apart, and when we were little, my parents dressed us similarly. There are pictures somewhere of the two of us hanging our Christmas stockings by the chimney with care, dressed in matching red and white striped flannel pajamas, hanging matching stockings. These were the Christmas stockings Bird and I used until my mother quit doing stockings for us (although she still does one for my brother!).
As I’ve been cruising the blogs and the interwebs, I have seen some wonderful Christmas stockings, and if I had a fireplace, I’d love to hang any of them!

These felt stockings look like they belong to elves! Here.
Ever since Martha’s first Christmas magazine, she’s had great stockings like these made from vintage handkerchiefs and vintage blankets.
Although I am not a fan of the term “shabby chic” these are fun, maybe for Connor. Here.
Do you still fill Christmas stockings? Do you get one?
