white coastal christmas

Hi.. how are your Christmas preparations going? 

It's going to be a white Christmas here, coastal white, that is. 

Trying not to get caught up in the madness, aiming to keep it simple, natural, calm & relaxed. That's the plan anyway!

Christmas time means white hydrangeas

white shells with silver

white candles

candlelight, starlight

Some simple stockings that were quick & easy to make. I used tea towels I bought a while ago, just for the beautiful fabric. Thought I'd think of something to make with them one day. 

I drew a pattern with chalk onto brown paper. 
Folded the tea towel.
Cut the stocking with the back on the fold.

Pinned & sewed together. 
No sewing needed on the top edge and back.
I sewed a piece of string to the top of each to hang.

Only 15 days to go

Keep Calm!
