Frances Reid Stockings

I hope you had the most wonderful holiday weekend.  We had an amazing time with family and friends and I’m a little bummed it’s all over with.  At least New Year’s is not far off!

Today, I wanted to share with you stockings that my sister-in-law handmade.  She is an amazing seamstress, incredibly fashionable and very creative.  She is the woman behind the children’s clothing line: Frances Reid Clothing, which I will be blogging about more fully once her site is up and running.

Here are the stockings she whipped up for her husband, herself and their cats and dog.

Stockings for their cats: Apple, Penny and Jack.

Love the embroidery!

Her own stocking.

She even lined the inside with a different coordinating fabric for each stocking.

My brother’s stocking – her inspiration – the woodsy look

My favorite – the stocking for their dog, Charlie.

Without a fireplace mantel to hang the stockings, Bridget pulled an ingenious move and hung them on their coat rack.  So smart and creative!  Well done, Bridget!!

Over the Christmas weekend, my nephew, Nico wore the blazer that we had custom made for him from Bridget last year.  This is a sneak peak at Bridget’s awesome talents – I can’t wait to show more as her business builds…

The lining is the most adorable frog lining that matches the stitching and coloring of the jacket – it is an awesome, one of a kind jacket that he looks very dapper in.
