Ho, ho, ho! Christmas in on its way to Taiwan. Ebeth (nickname) likes a little bling with her Christmas, but were still keeping it simple JUNKMARKET Style and not over cooked.
A traditional red stocking with vintage twist. I love that my froiend incorporated the pocket and the lapel of this thrift store find.
I always have a jar of vintage baubbles about the house. Of course I do! You never know when you may need a bauble or two. Just saying....
I clipped the earrings on to the pocket, but to make them more secure I also used some Aleens fabric embellishing adhesive. You can find this at any craft store.
Three little pigs all in a row.
The bit of bling makes the stocking come alive.
I love the pocket for a little hidden surprise. The tracking device for Santa is cleverly diguised as a a littl elf Pez dispenser.
Now a little bling for the hanger. I found this key chain at GETFRESH Vintage that was created by our very own Lanette Lorsung. Perfect little addition for creative hanging.
I wanted to personalize the stocking and originally intended to add my daughters initial created from a vintage metal stencil, but then I decided that was a little too expected. This little vintage spoon trinket created by the talented Diana Darden was right on the money. My daughter sings like an angel. The key chain with baubbles can be removed and used as a key chain after Christmas. The gift that keeps on giving!
A little touch of dazzle goes a long way. The stocking was hung by the door knob with care in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there!
A little key color coordination with the packages!
And its a wrap. No pun intended!

This is this is what I call..."I get by with a little help from my friends" post. As you know I can't sew any more than a straight line so my friend made this beautiful stocking from a thrift store women's blazer. I added some vintage frill to the pocket. and a few other goodies made by two of my other talented friends. I also included a tracking device so the Santa will be able to find Elizabeth in Taiwan. Merry Christmas little girl...your package heads out tomorrow!
