Busy As A Bee Making Stockings

I have learned from past mistakes, that one can never be too early or prepared for the holidays. Sooo, I have decided to start early this year and be ready for a wonderful holiday season.
I thought I would show you the first of 5 of my completed stockings.
I hope you enjoy what I have created so far this year.

Vintage crochet work as well as vintage buttons and a cute ornie at the top.

Venise Lace and a sweet gingerbread star at the top.

This image is probably one of my most favorites. I love the look of these Victorian ladies. Vintage lace was used also.

More vintage buttons and lace, along with another beautiful image of Victorian ladies dressed up in fashionable clothing.
This is the first of 10 completed stockings. I will be showing you more later in the week.
These will be uploaded onto my website Someplace In Thyme this week.


  1. Hi Char, You have been busy getting ready for the holidays. As fast as the months are going, they will be here before we know it. It so very hot here. I think we are having two seasons summer and winter. I really like your Christmas stockings. I don't know which one I like the best. Have a great week and stay cool. Your Missouri Friend.

  2. Your stockings are simply beautiful! So soft and feminine looking and I just have to go and check out your website.

  3. Hello Char,

    Love your creations Char!!! I am glad to call you my friend and I just love to visit your sweet blog.
    Enjoy your day!!!

  4. Lovely stockings Char. You are certainly talented.

    Have a nice weekend.

  5. These are stunning! I saw them on your site, but couldn't see where to leave a comment, so I'm visiting here to say 'Happy Pink Saturday'!

  6. WOW! I love them! so cuteeeeeee!


  7. Lovely stockings, Char. I totally agree that now is the time to start! Thanks for stopping by today.

  8. Oh you are sooo smart to get a jump on the holidays. I was just starting to put it on my to do list. Your stockings are by far the prettiest I have seen. No, I never heard back about the old catalog wrapping paper, I think it would be so cute on a dress form. Odd, how a business would not respond?


  9. Hi Char! Thanks for coming by to say hi! Your work beyond believable! Just gorgeous!


I love to hear from you, so please let me know what you think.
