Meet Kerri

Hi! Thank you for stopping by to visit! My name is Kerri and I started blogging in 2009 when my second daughter was born. Since then I have returned to teaching full time in the classroom but I still have a passion for blogging.
I love coffee, all things rustic, vintage, clean eating and simple living.

The (Mismatched) Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney With Care

We hung our stockings up last night and I have to admit, they are mismatched. But not in a good Pottery Barn sort of way. Simply non-coordinating.

My husband bought us matching stockings when we were dating. Then baby girl #1 came along and got a pink Baby's First Christmas stocking.

When baby girl #2 came along, she got her very own pink Baby's First Christmas stocking and daughter #1 got a pink Princess stocking. And now daughter #2 has a vintage Winnie the Pooh stocking.

What does all this mean? It means I will deal with the stockings this year and wait for the after Christmas sales to buy new ones!

Meanwhile, I will drool over all of the pretty mantels that have coordinating stockings (or at least mis-matched stockings that look good together!)like the red and white one featured here from Linzlu214's Etsy shop!


  1. We got Pottery Barn quilted stockings a few years ago with each child's name on theirs. I love them and the kids do too. Hubs and I don't hang our stockings on the mantel. They go on door knobs around the house.

    Gotta love the after Christmas sales!

  2. I like mismatched personal stockings. My siblings and I used the same ones for most of our growing years. Tradition has its own special feel.

  3. New follower to your blog and I will admit, I am getting addicted to these awesome ideas! I am a thrifty shopper who loves quality also! We had the mismatched stocking "issue" last year. I did bit the bullet and went with all Pottery Barn, but that is the 1st time I have ever done that and probably one of the last. I just thought i really wanted to have all of the same quilted look...I can't wait to see what else you post this month!
