I promise I found a video on the Martha Stewart site on how to make these stockings but now I can't find it anywhere on there! I tried to remember as best as I could what I saw on the how-to video to replicate these stockings. What caught my eye was the no 'sewing required'...since at the moment I don't have a sewing machine. They were super easy to put together.
Here are some of the materials I used:
- German Glass Glitter
- A red brocade material (or you can do any vintage type of material)
- Digital reprints of postcards from the early 1900's (even better if you can find some real ones at a flea market. I didn't have time.)
- Fabric Glue
- Pinking Shears (for the toes and tops)

I just so happened upon this deal when I was looking at some money saving blogs this afternoon. World Market had their coffee buy one get one free and it's double punch on your coffee rewards card on Wednesdays too. ....PLUS I had a 20 dollar off 50 dollar purchase. I bought 16 bags of coffee which came to about 96.00 dollars but with all the deals I only paid 31 bucks for it all! And I got 6 punched out cards for free bags later on. So basically I got $130.00 dollars worth of coffee for $31.00!!!!! What a deal. Now if you're not a coffee drinker you'll probably think we're crazy but if you happen to love the stuff...you KNOW that's an amazing deal. ;O)
It won't stop raining here. I think it's the perfect day to stay home and catch up on laundry and maybe ...just maybe bake an apple blackberry leaf pie. We'll see. ; )

Emma and Luke got some Halloween cards from their Great Grandma Snow today! Luke had to give his a taste. =) We made Jack-o-Lanterns and ate some candy corn. We had already taken Emma to Boo in the Zoo last week and our neighborhood doesn't have any trick or treaters. =( It was a rainy day so it was nice to stay inside.

We always love driving up the Blue Ridge Parkway when the leaves start changing colors. Today we were a bit disappointed that they had some of it blocked off because of some rock slides. We got about half way up the mountain though and were able to pick some leaves for a scrapbook and take a 'little' hike and by little I mean a short 10 minute walk. =) Emma was slipping and sliding everywhere but we enjoyed it anyway! I thought it was neat in the last picture on here you can see the Biltmore house in the distance. It's so beautiful standing out in the middle of the mountains.

Chloe had a birthday party downtown at Falls Park on Saturday and Emma and Luke had tons of fun. Chase was able to get off work so he could join us. All the trees are starting to turn beautiful shades and it's starting to get cooler and more fallish. It was a great day to be outside.
