Here is a beautiful vintage illustration of Christmas stockings hanging from the fireplace mantle. There are four pairs of stockings, in a variety of sizes and styles, hanging empty – in anticipation of Santa’s arrival! Here is a black and white clip art version. I scanned the original image from the December 1897 issue of St. Nicholas magazine.

This would make such a lovely christmas card.

You’re welcome everyone! I’m happy to know you like this illustration.
I’m sorry that this is too late for the 2015 Christmas season but I’ve been thinking this would be a beautiful page header (printed or digital) for a Christmas letter home to family or friends – if anyone still does that these days.
I also love your ideas – Bernice, for a card and Peggy, for a scrapbook brush.
Thank you Deborah for the beautiful Christmas wishes. May you and your loved ones also be blessed with a happy Christmas and all the very best for 2016.
You’re welcome Alida.
Much love. 🙂
