Couture Stockings

Haute Couture: Made to order for a specific customer, usually made from high-quality, expensive fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail and finish, often using time-consuming, hand-executed techniques.

Matt's mom made these stockings for Henry and Harper, and I am BLOWN AWAY. Absolutely blown away.

She made Henry's perfectly adorable stocking last year.

It brings my heart so much joy.

That is all hand-stitched!

Is that not the cutest snowman ever?

And Harper's stocking. Oh. Oh. Oh. My.
It is angelic, just like my baby girl.

Isn't it splendid?

I love the faux fur. It's so posh.

And the star and halo? Just the right amount of sparkle.

These stockings are hanging from our mantle with pride, and it won't be easy taking them down after Christmas. They are so beautiful that I want to leave them up all year long.

  2. Eat your heart out Pottery Barn! Amazing! I can see why you may have a hard time taking them down. I can also imagine the pull to have more children....just to see what future stockings may look like!
