’twas the month before christmas,

by @according2kelly on November 26, 2007

and all through the house
all the creatures were stirring,
especially the mouse;

the stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
in hopes that st. nicholas soon would be there;

if i were reading this aloud, ala book on tape, right now you would hear a loud “rewind effect”, before i re-read “the stockings were hung by the chimney with care” because that’s where i’m getting stuck, while trying to transform my home into a winter wonderland… for years i have had what you might call a “vision.” i really want knit or crocheted stockings, you know, the ones that look like long socks. i LOVE the ones at sundance & the ones at pottery barn kids are pretty cute as well, but i don’t think i can justify the price tag. i’ve been googling & etsying and no luck! silly me, i figured i’d find them all over the place! but they are either too cutesy for my taste, too small, or just don’t even look like stockings (the measurements are all wrong). this is when i wish i was better at crocheting or knitting, then i could whip these babies out in a jiffy!

The PBK kids are very reasonably priced! I made some custom for a friend last year and to get them handmade would be more at the Sundance price (or more!).

I have always been in love with those stockings from PBK, but those from Sundance, wow, love them. I definetly think the ones in PBK are not too bad of a price, considering the ugle ones at the Walmarts and Targets go for $15 or more. I say do it.
