Twas the Night Before Christmas
"Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung on a quilt stand
with shower curtain hooks..."
Quilt Stand - Hobby Lobby - $24.99 (it was 75% off)
Shower Hooks - Walmart - $8.99
Stocking Stand - Cheaper than the one from Ballard Designs ($85.00)
Our fireplace mantle is very high, like Paul Bunyan high, so putting stockings way up there is kind of pointless. Thus began the search for a Floor Stocking Stand. I liked the look of one I found in Ballard Designs catalog, but it was too pricey and also became "unavailable". I've been watching it for 2 years now, trying to catch it on sale. Needless to say, when I saw this quilt stand on sale at Hobby Lobby, my wheels started turning and VOILA! I now have my Stocking Stand!
