I am a bit of a freak when it comes to Christmas. I recently signed up for a Vintage Christmas Stocking Swap. I am a bit swapped out lately, but when I saw this one posted I really wanted to sign up and participate. I love collecting vintage Christmas items and I love to decorate my house for Christmas. Last year I put up 9 decorated trees and assorted decorations. I’m sure that I will be boring everyone soon with posts about all my funky vintage christmas decorations.
Anyway, this swap was proposed as a challenge to create a stocking with a "vintage" theme in mind. And then stuff the stocking with any type of christmas goodies.
I love to make stockings and I love to sew and I love vintage fabrics! Perfect!
BUT, I was paired up with a partner, Svenja. And can you guess from her name, she lives in Germany. Well, talk about pressure! Germany is only the birthplace of all things Christmas awesome! I just this August took a trip with Mr GeorgiaPeachez for our 20th anniversary. We visited friends in Garmish, Germany which is in Bavaria. SO lovely! This was my second trip to Germany and I love it there. Just an incredible place.
Here are pictures of the stocking that I made from beautiful vintage fabrics and laces and the goodies that I selected to include with it for Svenja.
