One of the current topics of discussion on blogs I read right now is new stocking styles.  I think it's more fun when everyone has their own stocking that never changes than to make/buy new stockings every year to match the decorations in your house.

I know! I feel like as long as the stockings are cute and you love them, there's no need to change them. It makes it a fun tradition for everyone to hang up their own every year. My family has a stockpile of different stockings. My little sisters love to pick different ones every year, but I've always had my same soft white one with red trim and florwes. I love it!

How fun! My mom made us all a really simple green stocking (but Mom and Dad have red) and had us decorate them with fabric paint when we were little, so we still use all the same ones. It's so fun every year to see what we put on our stockings when we were little :)

Mom said...

Well, I hate to admit it, but your Gma Schetselaar made those stockings for you! I was not the seamstress back then that I am now! I did do the cross stitch on mine, dad and Brooke's, but then I got too busy and paint seemed the next best idea!
