The Stockings Were Hung….

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...WAIT... our stockings aren't hung by the chimney with care!

Our stockings were hung on the ladder with care...

Our Stocking Were Hung

Which is OK with me!

This year it's been about keeping it simple and nature inspired...and a ladder could be classified as nature?

Christmas Stockings

One stocking was hung using a mantel stocking holder sitting on the ladder top..

The other stocking was tucked in, and a small rag garland with a few ornaments was added.

Christmas Stocking

A separate vignette was created by adding the cute white pitcher, $ Tree ornament and a favorite Santa Ornament on top..Holly cuttings were added to provide some nature.

Christmas Vignette

Some of our holiday pillows were tucked in to the basket.  This basket was my Mom's, one I hold very dear.

Christmas Pillows

I guess I can say our stocking were hung with care...

  1. What a great idea and a nice change from the mantle. I've pinned it onto my ladder board - can't get enough ladder ideas!

  2. I love your creative idea on where to hang stockings! We have a fireplace, but not a mantle, so right now I don't have our stockings hung up at all! Maybe I'll get some 3M hooks and hang them on the side of our ladder bookcase.

    You have such good ideas. I usually hang our stockings on the fireplace mantle, but we have a half wall on a staircase in the family room, and this year I decorated the ledge of that wall and hung the stockings there. It us fun to try new places.

  4. Very pretty! Absolutely love your ladder...if only my home could accommodate one

  6. Such a cute idea Cathy! And perfectly fits your theme. I love it! Thanks so much for sharing it at the party this week! I am also featuring it on my Facebook page :-)

  7. Love the ladder and all that you put together in your vignette. It looks wonderful! Love it. Great home. I think this is the first time I've been to your blog. It is wonderful. Have a Merry Christmas!

  8. Just wanted to let you know this ladder was on my Saturday favorites-have a happy holiday!

  9. Very cute! I really like the ladder idea. I have a friend that uses one in her living room for hanging quilts, but I've never seen it for stockings before. Found you through link party at I Gotta Create.
