A New Pair of "Stockings" & NATE Berkus!

I am soooo excited! You know the designer
Nate Berkus

I just talked to
him on
the phone!!!
He was on HSN all day and I bought a pair of his flameless candles with a remote! They asked if I would like to talk to him and I said YES! A minute later I heard him say "Hi Maryjane"! I about died!
We had a little chat LIVE on TV!
Now how fun is that?! I love him to pieces! It sure made my day!

Okay...breathe Maryjane!

Last week I was blog hopping and made a visit to Brenda at
She sews beautifully! I spotted these darling Christmas stockings in her Etsy shop and they called my name !
I think I will leave them here for the holidays.

"Sew" pretty!

Thanks for visiting and wishing you a wonderful week!

They are very beautiful. I have some of the same material that I was going to use to make an apron. I've also started to think Christmas and am starting to work on projects to give as gifts. The stockings were a great purchase.
