    I adore Vanessa’s style. This piece is especially fabulous!

  2. Ella says:

    Thank you Vanessa! I have always wanted to make one-this is more my style~

    Oooh, Stampington as Santa-sounds magical!

    Thank you for all the inspiration~

    Oh, traditions:
    I know Santa does. He always leaves certain things in our stockings. There must be a tangerine in the toe and a few nuts: walnuts n’ pecans in their shell. A favorite chocolate bar, a candy cane and he always tucks in the center of a stocking, a wrapped gift. My bet is it is from Mrs. Santa-it is always unique n’ special.

    My husband’s family always had Lasagna, for Christmas. My husband n’ I swap our traditions.
    My father always wanted Roast Beef and the big family meal was always on Christmas eve and later, we went to a beautiful church service. I grew up in New England and we would bundle up and sometimes walk to church. Outside there were ice candles outlining the entrance with pine boughs and berries. It always took my breathe away how simply beautiful the arrangements were. If it is cold in the south-I love to make ice candles to remind me of this magic.

    I love this. I am an avid collector of vintage papers and I think this would be an awesome way for me to display some of my favorites. My mom still finds the most random and funny things to put in our stockings, even though we are adults. The Santa wind-up toys were a favorite a few years ago. She always says she could do away with our stockings and just buy gifts, but we always opt for the stockings!
