VINTAGE CHRISTMAS STOCKING SWAP
Wow what treasures Mandy sent to me.
Such a pretty stocking filled with some gorgeous treasures.
Look at the pretty little chandelier, 2 gorgeous French themed magnets, a stamp, 2 yummy smelling soaps, a lovely canvas print, a crocheted doily and 2 magazines.

Here is the Vintage Christmas Stocking and goodies I sent to Mandy – Pearl Maple. I have followed a beach theme with the decorations that are with Mandy’s stocking – even a couple with an Aussie theme to give her a laugh. I made the Vintage Christmas Stocking from my Grandma’s Vintage Damask Table cloth – it must be about 90 years old, I also used vintage chenille from my childhood bedspread – not quite 90 years old but probably 40 years old. I trimmed it with shell from a necklace and some little beads. I got Max to cut out some dolphin, beach hut and fish shapes for me to paint and glitter. I love how they turned out and did some for myself too.

How cute are these thongs/flip flop decorations. I so love these beach Santa’s, especially the Santa under the tree.. The shell decoration is so soft and pretty. Mandy has lovely white and cream throughout her home so I tried to keep things in her colour range - hope she liked them
UPDATE ON DAD
He has finally been sent to a rehab centre – still can’t stand or walk so he has some work to do. Only problem is it is a 2 hour drive away so I will probably only be able to visit once a week or a fortnight.
Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers for my Dad.
