The Stockings Were Hung.....


Scalamandre Tigre Velvet Stocking

I have no business browsing Barneys website, but there I was and here it is.  The fabric has been in the back of my mind for months.  A few Tigre Velvet pillows would be fun. Mix things up a bit. It's hard though, to justify buying that fabric for a few pillows. The stocking costs less than I expected, considering it's from Barneys (what am I saying?).   Such a waste though, that it would only be up for a month.  The rest of the time, it would languish in a plastic bin with other Christmas decorations. Hardly the place for such a luxurious item (the cuff is faux fur--another plus). 

Too bad Christmas only comes once a year.

    1. Yes - I will have to keep an eye out for an after Christmas sale. Not sure if that's even in Barneys vocabulary!

  6. The stocking is pretty unique. Go for it. You've been thinking about that fabric for months, and you'd love it anew every Christmas.
