LOVE Is In The Air! ~Inspired Valentines Stockings~

Good Sunday afternoon, my Prim Friends!  I know it's been quite a while since I've stopped by and said, "Hey!" but I finally had a chance to get started on Valentine's goodies, and am ready to share the first of the finished for 2012.  :)

I am taking today to craft away (among a few other things), but before I get busy doing so, I wanted to be sure to share these Valentine's Stocking Door Hangers with you.  

These stockings were inspired by a post from Tammy over at A Primitive Place during Christmastime.  Tammy shared a Dollar Tree craft she came up with after discovering these adorable fur-topped, long Christmas socks, and I just couldn't help myself!  I ran right out, and hit 3 or 4 Dollar Trees before I was lucky enough to "hap" upon the LAST four pair, hanging in an odd spot, just as I was about to give up finding any at all.  I got them home, grubbied them up, and then completely went blank.  I didn't want to copy Tammy's stockings, exactly, and knew I wanted to fill them with goodies, etc, but I just couldn't come up with something I was happy with, so,  ...I set them aside, knowing it'd come to me, eventually, and what do ya know?  AFTER Christmas had come and gone, and I was pondering Valentines Day ideas, it hit me!  VALENTINES STOCKINGS!!! YES!

To see the socks as they look straight from the Dollar Tree please click the link above to Tammy's post from "A Primitive Place" blog, as I tried an image search and even the Dollar Tree website for a factory photo, but no luck. 

So, here they are... My Valentines Stockings, complete with handmade heart pillows, red/silver glittery floral pieces, moss and red pip-berries.  Finished off with grubby tag with handwritten Valentine sentiment and stamp, rusty safety pin and bell, and dusted generously with olde fashioned mica glitter.  Twisted rusty wire hanger attached on back for hanging.
