holiday ponderings

I'm not sure why, but I have had Christmas on the brain NONSTOP this past week. I've started my annual Christmas shopping list and have been jotting down gift ideas as they come to me. Just this morning, I found myself humming "Santa, Baby". I've also started thinking about decorating the house. I have PLENTY of ornaments, so the tree is not a big concern. However, since we have a mantle now, stockings are a MUST and this is one thing I do not have. I've been doing some online shopping and so far the only place I've found that I really like is Pottery Barn. I like all three of these options:
Just simple red and green- the colors of the season....


A more sophisticated look...


Or a classic childhood Christmas look..
Another perk about all of the stockings pictured above is that they have matching tree skirts. While I love all of these, I would still like something a little more young, funky, and elf-like. If anyone has any suggestions, please send them my way!

I'm going to Christmas Village next week, and I'm sure they will have a TON of stuff. I will keep my eyes wide open for you. We've gotta get new stockings too - some for a family of four!

I love the first classic stockings. Our family uses rather simple, yet beautiful stockings and I love them.

Good luck picking them out!

We bought the classic childhood Christmas look last year! L-O-V-E them! These are my fav! Not so "trendy"...good memories instead!
