The stockings were hung by the chimney with care…

In hopes that Miss Leah Destructo would not come near…

Luckily she lost interest before tearing them all down. Not a food related post at all, but I just had to share the stockings that my mother-in-law makes for each family member. Very time intensive but beautiful and such a treasure for our family!
