40 YEAR OLD STOCKINGS - AND NOT ONE HOLE!!



 These Christmas stockings were the first ones I ever bought for my children who are
now 38 and 42 years old.  I've put them away all these years and digging them out has brought  back a flood of memories.  As you can see, they were more like dolls with a hook at the top for hanging and the little pouch in front was for slipping in little presents.  I found them at a Hallmark store that was designed to specifically showcase Christmas things.  Isn't this trip down memory lane a hoot!

Warmest greeting to you all!

Jo
