It was the night before Christmas...

...which means I get to hang my childhood stocking and discover anew all the little details, sequins, stars and buttons.

It used to belong to my Mother, she unpicked her name, sewed mine at the top and it became mine.  I haven't got round to unpicking my name yet and handing it on.  Perhaps I'll wait for a grand daughter to come along!

Bonne Nuit mes amis and Joyeux Noël.


  1. Oh yes, wait for a little Grand-Hakes to come along, she will adore it and treasure it for all her life. It's beautiful Cari, what a wonderful treasure you were given. xx

  2. this reminds me of one of the ornaments I inherited from my mom's tree. lovely and precious.

    merry christmas cari.

  3. Mrs L - I'm in for a LONG wait...
    Pamela - Thank you! And you too!

  4. Oh what a lovely tradition! I still have a stocking my aunt made me but she stitched my name at the top. My niece who has my middle name used it this year.

    Happy New Year to you and yours!
