Stairway Christmas Stockings

G'day from Oz sweet friends! Thanks for dropping by to visit me in my little corner of the world Down Under.

Today I had a sick little boy at home with me so I didn't get time to do much decorating. Alastair has a summer cold and he was quite miserable about being home...that was until I suggested that we make some cookie batter! We decided to make the dough for the Sugar Cookie Cut outs that I included in my last post. It is in the fridge now so will we will cut out the shapes tomorrow...I will let you know how we go!
After we made the cookie dough Alastair decided that we should hang our Christmas stockings and so that is what we did. So today's Met Monday post is about our stairway Christmas stockings

We have just had our house painted and the staircase area is bare and very boring at the moment. Eventually I would like to decorate our staircase walls just like Susan's staircase (I told you her blog is fantastic!) I was really inspired by her  post about her staircase so I think I might try out some of her ideas in the new year-thanks for the great idea Susan! Anyway, here is a picture of our very bland stair case. Please don't look at the broken light -we are getting it replaced soon!

Like I said....Boring!

Here is our Stairway Christmas Stocking display! Still a little bland but at least it is a bit more festive.

We have collected our Christmas stockings over the years on our travels.

This is Alastair's stocking adorning our Festive Staircase! He bought it just after he met Sponge Bob himself at Universal studios!

Mr Attorney's stocking was a gift from our dear American friends, the ones who are arriving very soon from Cleveland to spend Christmas with us.

Madeleine bought her stocking last year at Harrods!

My stocking is from New York-Isn't Minnie looking lovely as Lady Liberty?

Next year I will do a Met Monday post on the transformation of our staircase but until then, thanks for checking out my Stairway Christmas Stockings and for visiting me here at Natasha in Oz

I'd better go and check on my little patient. Have a great week!

Best wishes always,

  1. Your post is so... so very merry Christmas:) I love visiting your blog, because you seem to be so happy about Christmas and everything:)Your stockings are wonderful because they have their own history...and are very cute:)I hope your little patient will get well soon. It sounds little bit funnny "summer cold"... I can´t quite imagine what it is?:)

    Have a nice day

    P.S. The plant on my banner is called "elder" http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/e/elder-04.html

  2. What a great idea! I never thought to use that railing for stockings! I love that each stocking as meaning behind it! Thanks for sharing :)

  3. These are very beautiful. Reminding me Christmas is only a few weeks away.

  4. How cute and what a fabulous idea. I love all the socks, they are just so unusual and wonderful. Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs, Marty

  5. Sorry about the sick little one. :-( Hope his cold will be all better, soon.

    Sweet way to decorate your stairway!

  6. We do something similar with our staircase. Because our fireplace is somewhat open, I'm always worried about hanging the stockings from the mantle. So, I hang them with decorative bows on our bannister and it makes for a festive welcome at the front door!

  7. What a cute idea...I don't have room to hang stockings on the mantle this year because of the tv so this gave me an idea!!!

    Thanks so much!


  8. As I was reading "A has a summer cold". I was sorry first to hear he feels bad. Hope he's better. It reminded me of "Ah hath ah lethuth" (I'll have to send you the link). I thought ... summer? B/c it's cold today. (Texas) and I saw the Christmas stockings and it hit me, oh, you have Christmas in the summer. I was too little to remember Christmas in Hawaii or Philippines. Some years we have hot weather and some cold. But it's interesting to note the differences.
    Thanks also for the 30 Days of Thanksgiving spent w/you! Enjoyed it! Here's the link - LOL or I can has cheezeburger cats has some funny stuff. We quote "Ah hath a....fill in the blank" all the time around here. Our son shows us the stuff - so I don't know the content of the site totally ... http://icanhascheezburger.com/2008/05/13/funny-pictures-ah-hath-ah-lethuth/

  9. Oh it does look great! Those stockings all tell their own story don't they!

    Hope your little guy feels better soon!

  10. Thank you so much for posting this today. It brought back wonderful memories. Enjoy, because they grow so fast; love the way you put the stockings on the stairs.

  11. Why didn't I think of that?!! So simple but yet it added so much!

  12. Hi, Natasha, thanks for stopping by! So glad you're going to join my Christmas tour of homes this year. Should be a lot of fun.

  13. Very cute! I would never have thought to put stockings on the staircase. It was an excellent idea.

  14. What a clever place to hang the stockings. Hope the little one feels better soon....Sarah
