Thrift Shop Find of the Week
When I saw these old hand-knit socks with their bright cheery red at a thrift shop, I knew right away that they would somehow be used during Christmas. So I "socked" them away in the basement with the rest of my Christmas decorations until it was time to decorate the house for the holidays.
It didn't take long to come up with an idea of how to use them this year. I stuffed them with cedar and pine cones, some cinnamon sticks and candy canes and then attached a ribbon to hang them. A very quick decoration and so informal and fun. Maybe next year they will be filled as stockings for someone, but who knows...
