Heidi who said~

Beautiful stockings – My husband and I were just saying that we need to get one for our daughter (it’s her first Christmas) It would be wonderful to win one – what a lovely store to tell her when she gets older.

Please email me with your address!

And, I am going to have to give away the dinosaur one as well as I was overwhelmed with all of the response! I wish I had something to give everyone!

Both of your stockings are so lovely, what a nice way to create beauty out of recycled elements. I would love to win the dinosaur stocking for my two year old nephew who will be spending the holidays with us!


Please email me so I can get these packages off to you both. Thank you everyone!

Update: Oh my goodness, what a response! I have

 loved reading each and every comment. Everyone has been so sweet. My little helper has gone to bed, but I will announce the winner tomorrow afternoon after I get home from work.  So, if you want to enter there is still time.  Thank you everyone for playing along!



I am so excited to participate in Sew Mama Sew’s Give-A-Way day! It makes me feel good to give.  I love it! This year with so much doom and gloom I have often been overwhelmed at times.  I am feeling  hopeful for the future.  I am hoping for a stable and healthy year with my family. We have had some hard times these past few years. We have suffered loss, too many, and a scare or two.  We have had our joys as well. I welcome each day for its newness and  I always hope for a better tomorrow. Everyday I try to do this. So, in order for me to feel good and hopeful I like to give.
I really do. It may not be much, but my intentions are sincere.

So, my gift to a lucky recipient is a stocking of your choice along with some goodies  to fill it with.

     a stocking for a boy or

     a stocking for a   girl…..












 I hope the dinosaurs do not offend, it is not my intention at all. I just loved the fabric.  The white heirloom inspired  stocking could be for a girl or a boy.   You pick which you prefer and tell me for boy or girl and I will fill it up and it is yours to give, keep or whatever…

  ~ wooden puzzles, wooden car, Christmas Story…..

inside the Edwardian book~

  The Edwardian House book is so cool! It has 8 rooms with incredible details.  I have 2 wooden puzzles, several books and some really pretty bunny sisters.. that should help fill a little one’s stocking.  Stockings were made with repurposed materials. The boy stocking is quilted and the white heirloom  stocking is handpieced and then machine stitched.   All toys have been collected from various thrift stores.

Happy Holidays from me to you!

To enter, just leave a comment.

 I will pick a winner tonight by 10:00pm Central time! I will mail by Monday….

Good luck!

  1. I’d love to be a part of your giveaway (if you are including international entries) So generous and the stockings are lovely. I have to say I love the dinosaurs, but if i did win, it would have to be a girly stocking.

    Hope you are having fun with giveaway day.

  2. I have both girls and boys but I would have to pick girly just for the dollhouse book. Love it! (and I have a special spot for eyelet)

    thanks for the give away!

  3. That is a very generous prize. Of course, I’d like to be in the running. My little boy ADORES dinosaurs and is in the market for a new stocking. He gets a new one each year, usually handmade, but I haven’t done one for this year yet. Good luck to the winner, and I hope your next year is super better!

  4. This would be perfect for my little boy. He just realized this year that his stocking isn’t very special. (We have not had much luck finding something “just right” for him) Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  5. I can’t see the pics for some reason, but stockins are wonderful. I keep thinking that I’ll make them, and never get around to it.

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  6. Wow they are both so lovely! I have 2 boys and 1 girl so either would be great for us. I think maybe the girl one so that the boys don’t fight over it:) You are so talented!

  7. Ooops, commented in the wrong place! So here’s my comment over here instead. ❤

    Those stockings are just darling! It is so good of you to work past the pains of life and be able to give of yourself!

    If I won, I’d simply adore the dino stocking, but with the girly gifts within. ::laughs:: We’re dino nuts at our house, but we’re also incredibly girly (and big bunny fans!) XD

    Okay, I’ll stop being a dork. Good luck everyone.


  8. Oooh — these are SO lovely! Thanks for taking part in this great giveaway day. 🙂 I was just lamenting last evening that I STILL haven’t made a proper stocking for my little guy (who’s already two). Winning this would be great…or if nothing else, seeing it provides inspiration!

  9. absolutely gorgeous. I hardly know which one to chose… do I pick for my daughter or my son?

    But I think I fell in love with that dinosaur one. I love all the details on it.

    This giveaway is pointing me to so many lovely blogs I never knew about.

  10. I have a little 2 year old dinosaur loving boy who would love this Christmas Stocking. Keeping fingers crossed here!

  11. What a beautiful and generous prize. Beautiful workmanship. I will definitely be back to visit. Sandy

  12. too cute, and hard to decide between a boy or a girl! If I win I would have to say for a girl, the girly one, for my baby girl. So creative!

  13. What a great prize you have! Im new to your blog, but your stockings are beautiful! (I hope I can participate, but I live in Sweden, and I didnt see if you ship overseas)
    Will take a closer look at your blog now. 🙂

  14. Wow, that edwardian book is amazing! My daughter doesn’t have a stocking yet, but I’m not sure I could let her keep that book, I love doll houses, but so does she.

  15. I have that exact copy of the Velveteen Rabbit — couldn’t pass up the illustrations and handmade paper look 🙂

    I’m so glad you love to give because this is a dream of a giveaway. Your stockings are beautiful; I heartily agree with you about the dinos. And lacy white is every little girl’s dream…

  16. Am I still on time? I can’t seem to get time difference, so I hope I am, because I LOVE the girl stocking!! If you’re willing to ship it to Barcelona, Spain, of course!!

    I hope that the New Year brings joy and happiness to you and your loved ones… sincerely 🙂

  18. I’d like soooo much to win your great giveaway, those stockings are simply delightful…so I’ll keep my fingers crossed, goodness knows if Fortune, in the day of my birthday (yes, yes, it’s tomorrow, 4th of december! :o)…), will smile on me! ;o)

    A big hug from Italy and thanks again so much for this chance!

  22. I absolutely love the dinosaur stocking, my son would love it too. Also would love the Edwardian house book- I’m sure the stairs in the book would peak his imagination I can see his little fingers walking up them now.

    (Even if I don’t win I hope that you might be able to send me the name of the book and where I might buy it)

    Have a happy holidays!

  23. My daughters are obsessed with dinosaurs and pokemon right now. So – dinosaur please. And – the velveteen rabbit we read this summer and my children loved the book. It would be great to own it! Thanks for your fantastic giveaway, Beth

  24. That stocking is beautiful! My son will be two in April and he loves dinosaurs. I would just let you pick the toys and be surprised. This is a really sweet giveaway. Sincerely touching. Any child would be so lucky to get one of those stockings.

  25. So cute! My son would love the dino stocking. Thanks for a super giveaway!

  26. Hi, thank you for letting me enter your drawing. Those stockings are adorable. The boy’s one with the dinosaurs caught my eye right off, as I thought that was the Loch Ness monster at the bottom at first. Too cute!

    Yes, Christmas and the New Year is a time of hope. Best of holidays and 2009 to you and your family!

  27. Oh goodness, my two year old needs a customized stocking (read: not whatever I can dig out of my attic space) the Dino would be perfect, he’s just getting into Dinosaurs.

  28. Beautiful stockings – My husband and I were just saying that we need to get one for our daughter (it’s her first Christmas) It would be wonderful to win one – what a lovely store to tell her when she gets older.

  29. These are adorable. If I am fortunate enough to win I would truly be happy to have either. I prefer the boy stocking but I love the items that go in the girls 😉 So I’ll just let you decide if I am the winner. Thanks for your generousity and hard work ~ elle
