Grain Sack Stockings and a winner

Hello!  I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful weekend!!  Today I am linking up with my friend Maria's amazing giveaway!  When Maria told me that she would be giving away 2 grain sacks stockings and a gorgeous wreath from Wintersteen Farms, I was so thrilled for her readers because I happened to have ordered those things for my own home a few weeks ago!  So I wanted to show you how I have used them in my own home.

I love, love, love the grain sack Christmas stockings that I ordered from Maria...I even ordered two red ones :))  I knew I wanted them to hang from my vintage ladder...

I just adore the two wreaths I ordered from Wintersteen Farms.  I put one on each of the "garage doors" that I have in my studio.  These wreaths would make a really special gift for any of you looking for Christmas ideas early!

I stacked the grain sacks that usually hang on my ladder on a chair next to the ladder for the Christmas season...I'm a little obsessed with grain sacks :))

I have been working on adding little bits of fresh greenery and berries to all the rooms around the house...

And, I have been turning my little studio into a gift wrapping station lately {more on that later}...I love wrapping Christmas presents!
