Stockings by Christmas Cove Designs
Christmas decorations present a unique challenge in attempting to avoid the Victorian aesthetic: heavy, dark and tending to have significant quantities of draping fabric.
The one stand-out is stockings from Christmas Cove Designs of Richmond, Maine. Handmade of Virgin Wool (straight from the sheep), these stockings feature images of sailboats, loons, pine trees, lighthouses and chickadees. Substantial and beautifully made, they even come in miniatures to hang on the tree.
