Deck the Halls! Stockings Add Holiday Cheer.

I nearly Scrooged out this year on Christmas decor: Our place is feeling so small that I didn't want to cram in any more stuff. But even in the smallest home, there's always room for Christmas stockings. Neither Keith nor I had a stocking, and I was concerned: Where would Santa put the jewelry and plane tickets to London?! Ha. 

So last week I picked up a pair of silver stockings at Family Dollar for $2.00 apiece and decorated them with stuff lurking in my craft stash. For a $4.00 project, I'm quite pleased with them. I decorated Keith's stocking with feathers that remind me of the embellishments on men's hats, and I used flowers and glittery fronds for my own stocking.

Hint hint!
It's been such a full week: I saw Dax Riggs and Animal Collective play last weekend (no, not together!). I finished knitting a baby blanket for a friend's tiny new son and a cowl for my mother. I was interviewed for a Nashville Public Radio story about house hunting in Nashville, and the criteria that are important to local home  buyers. NPR might do a follow-up story on me and Keith in a few months; I hope we've made progress by then! I've been Christmas shopping, I made butternut squash soup for the first time, and I'm counting the days until Christmas. 

Oh yeah, and last Monday was my last day at the library. But more on that later!
