Something missing

Have you seen the lovely vintage flocked Shiny Brite ornaments on Robyn's Mugwump Woolies blog? I fell in love immediately! That weekend I stopped at my little local antique shop and came home with these. My own little collection :) $10 spent and I am one happy camper!

I like how this simple little corner turned out with two Schneeman pieces and some fresh holly from my sister's yard. 

My sons' reminded me that something is missing from our mantle.
This will be the third Christmas that our sweet Orion has been with us and still he doesn't have a matching Christmas stocking! They told me that this is the year that I must remedy the situation.
I'm still working on the black wool insert and then must assemble it all by hand.
Here is hoping that I have a productive stitching weekend as I am quickly running out of time...
Wishing you a productive weekend as well!
Blessings, Patti

Goodness love those ornaments and to think at one time there were lots on our family tree growing up - see a person should never get rid of things lol. Of course now I want some of them. Good luck on your stitching. I really should make up a stocking for ms. Cami - you inspire me to write it down for next year. Merry Christmas

Ooohing and awing over the Schneeman pieces. That Orion is one dapper guy. Hope he enjoys his new stocking! ~Roberta
