My sister, Sarah, had this cute idea for hanging their stockings at my parents' house. You don't have to poke any holes in your fireplace mantle and it looks super cute Gather up some of your household cowboy boots if you have them, gather up some rocks, put the rocks in ziploc bags, put the bags in the boots to weigh them down so they don't topple over from the weight of Christmas morning goodies, then tie your stockings to them with holiday ribbon:
So cute! You have my permission to also ooh and aah over our personalized, hand-knit stockings that our Aunt Lori made for each of us when we were born. She even made Trent one for a wedding present! Mine and his were back home in Waco. This picture was actually taken last Saturday, January 8th, when I was in Fredericksburg for a visit. I guess they weren't ready to put away Christmas yet!
