So, here is my Christmas stocking. Mother made them for each of her three girls in the early 1960's. The beginning of my felt, sequins and beads obsession. I always have, and always will, treasure it dearly.
And she also made these adorable shadow boxes for us - I'm not sure what year. This always has a place of honor in my home at Christmas, as well. We don't have a whole lot of things that were made especially for us by her own hand, so they are very special, indeed.
