Ruby Tuesday - 12-23-08 - Stuffed Stockings


MaryT/theteach hosts this weekly event - photographs of all things red.

Click on photos to enlarge for detail.



My mom knit this stocking for me about 30 years ago. I love the Christmas stocking tradition. It's all fun and no high expectations or pressure. Our family tradition was to always have an orange in the toe. I still do that.

Just hanging around, waiting for the day.


Mom had alot of patience, sewing on those little sequins.





Uh oh, looks like Rudolph needs a little nose job - it's slipping.


Created with love.

Another sweet and personal Xmas family tradition in this week's RT, we don't have the stockings-tradition here in Sweden per se, though I've seen them around for plain decoration purposes.

Happy Christmas, I hope you get some neat things in your stockings!
