As soon as I finished my new holiday stockings (see previous post) I realized I had a problem. This is what my fireplace looks like! How the heck are you supposed to hang holiday stocking on this?????
Well…..as luck would have it, last week Santa Cruz had an unprecedented wind storm that left my yard looking like this!
So, I rummaged through this pile and found a branch roughly the size of my wood stove and drug it into the house.
I got some Gardening Twine from Ace Hardware ($2.50 for 147 ft).
A couple of loops and knots and in about 15 minutes I had a brand new holiday mantle….
Stocking hung by the fire with care…..
