The stockings are hung....

Okay, jut one more picture for you that I had to share!.... I was filling the stockings with goodies and I just had to take a picture because of the new fireplace grate that I have.
It was made by a dear friend of mine that does Iron Art. You would never think that she did work like this, because she is an adorable, petite woman! But she wrestles these iron pieces like they were butter.

Anyhow, I got this piece from one of her shows, it was made for a client that canceled.... Isn't it gorgeous? And don't the stockings look adorable hanging from them?? And now I don't have to worry about the stockings being too heavy and falling down, stocking hanger and all.

If you are interested in iron art, visit Robin's website and take a peek. She will make ANYTHING. The more artsy the better. She also custom designed and created the iron garden bunny for me.

  1. Very cute!!! I so wish I had a fireplace!! Guess will pop in the Yule Log DVD :)

    Have a very Merry Christmas!!

  2. Your fireplace grate is beautiful. Your friend is so very talented. I loved how festive it all looked with the stockings hanging there. I noticed my little ornament hanging in the corner. But what I noticed most especially was that the kids stockings are all very old and look like they have been long cherished. Your xmas tree quilt is amazing you have a real gift for sewing. But most of all I loved the story about packing up the tree and moving it to the cottage, I really enjoy it when people share good family memories.

    Love you,
    Merry Christmas

  3. I always wanted a fireplace to hang stockings on yours looks so cute.

    Merry Christmas to your family
