Christmas Stockings Before Thanksgiving

Faux fur fabulousness

This year I found my husband and me our first Christmas stockings as a married couple (even though this is our second Christmas married).  They are super cute and we bought them on but my search for a stocking has some ups and downs.  Here are the ups:

I love how this looks like a handmade embroidered piece and with a little sparkle to it, too!  This one will be mine.

This cutie cute one (sorry its so blursville) will be my husbands.  

This one if for your favorite friend who loves gnomes...I have one in mind. 

Love me some fur.  These white quilted ones are simple yet cute.  

This is QUITE nubbly and good if you're going for a bit more of a traditional look.  

Nothing gets me like a pom-pom.

Such a cute Christmas scene needlepointed on this stocking.  Plus you can monogram it.  
Speaking of monogramming...These are cute for a monochromatic christmas decor type of look.

I've seen a lot of my friends on Facebook who have already put up Christmas trees and I'm a little alarmed.  Don't get me wrong, I've been listening to Christmas carols for a good month at this point, but I feel like you should wait until after Thanksgiving...right?  So where do you all get your stockings?  Show me!!  All these adorsies stockings are on my Pinterest.  Hit it.

Thanks Irina! I love needlepoint stockings--my grandmother made our family's stockings and I absolutely love them. There is so much work that goes into them. Very admirable that you're doing your familys' too!

I love the stockings from LLBean! Traditional and great size and of course durable.
