Ruffled {gasp} Christmas Stockings

So I must first start off by saying, I am breaking my own rules of even bringing up said holiday this soon.  The thought simply stresses me out.  I would rather be dreaming of popsicles and sunsets.  But with my major craft room clear out, this was another unfinished project that needed to be finished. 

I found these blue striped stockings on clearance a couple of years ago on clearance at Marshall's for $3 each.  I fell in love with their skinny, long, whimsical look with a touch of shabby chic.  They were cute but not enough.

Last year I picked up the glittery initials at Walmart.  But they still were not quite right.  They needed ruffles.  Lacey ones...

I am just in love with these soon {but thankfully not too soon} to be filled stockings of sweet treats and love notes...

I like that they are similar but a little me freedom to add to the collection when our family grows...

And I love them so much that they have been hanging in my dining room for a couple of weeks now.  wink.

Have you started preparing for the holidays?
