Another Giveaway! Ho Ho Ho!




I still haven’t gotten a Christmas tree but we will be getting one this weekend. 
I am ready to get my ornaments out and take some pictures of the lights.
I have put some other decorations out including some more stockings.

I was sent a couple of of these cute stockings from Sailor Bags.
I love the zig zag stitching on them!

2 stockings

They asked if I could incorporate them into my holiday decor and I said sure!

I used the blue one on my front door. What I love about these stockings is that they are made of real sail cloth and that means they can take being outside. I filled a little baggie with some stones to give it some weight since it would be top heavy without it.

I stitched up this little starfish out of some blue ticking then added a real one along with it.

I didn't have a tree trimming yet, so I went out back and picked some magnolia branches and some pine. I then added just a few things from around the house like a piece of driftwood, a shell, some feathers and a few pine cones. I used some rope to hang it from my door knocker and frayed the end.

I like that it fits between my front door and the storm door.

The red one I hung on the french door to the pool.

I used the same greens from the yard.

I had another star out of the ticking but then I added a metal snowflake and some ribbon.
I also had this cute bird in a nest.

I think they came out pretty cute. What do you think?

  14. Love what you did with the stockings, Anita, they are so cute and tasteful.

    Spent some time on their website. Their bags that zip closed on top are the best idea for the boat or the beach to keep everything dry. So durable, too!

  16. I love the sailor bag and I really could use a new one for the beach. When I was loading up our cartop carrier in the summer, my beachbag fell out and I accidently ran over it. Needless to say it has tire tracks all over it! :(
