Sometimes 'simple' makes a bigger statement than any other. . .
I'm back with more photos from White House Creations in Bernie, Missouri, looking for more inspiration. . .I am never disappointed. . .and have become very aware that even for our Farmhouse Style, the simplicity of everyday red stockings captures the Spirit of Santa better than any of my choices in the past. . .
For many years we never had anything else but stockings from the sock drawer for Santa to fill. . .To be truthful, they usually were Daddy's biggest socks and definitely not red. . .It wasn't until I was maybe six or so that my Grandmother Duncan gifted us with felt stockings, shiny and glittery with embellishments. . .They were big and deep. . .making us very happy since Santa had to fill them with many more goodies than normal. . .
But. . .now in my adulthood. . .memories of those everyday stockings, carefully hung Christmas Eve night where Santa would be sure to find them, bring a smile. . .
Everywhere I looked, Dottie inspired my stocking revelation more. . .even in her log cabin, 'simple' made a statement that was undeniable. . .
