Thank you all for the kind words on our Holiday Home Tour yesterday! It has been fun switching up color palettes this season. Who says you have to have red & green to be festive?!
I showed you all our new stockings yesterday & couldn’t be prouder to share the story behind them (& how you can get them too!)
They all started with this sketch I created a few months back…
My friend Melinda over at the beautiful shop MindaHome, contacted me about collaborating on this project for the Holiday Season. I adore her products (you might remember them too… the Moroccan Wedding Blanket & Gorgeous Custom Pillows we added to my daughter’s room earlier this year!) & knew that this could be a really exciting collaboration!
I sent Melinda a few sketches showing my general design & inspirations & she ran with it! Melinda worked with artisans from Nepal to weave the herringbone fabric, the tassels are adorned with brass beads hand crafted in Ethiopia & the finishing touches are festive brass jingle bells from India. There is also the option for monogramming, I choose to have a single initial in metallic gold… obviously.
So not only are these beautiful handmade stockings, they have an amazing story behind them. And the most important part is their purpose…
ONE:ONE Holiday is the generous program that MindaHome is offering which donates one gorgeous stocking to a Homeless Youth for every stocking sold. She has a stunning variety of stockings with this same promise. But with the purchase of the stocking I designed 50% of the proceeds will be headed to the Atlanta Mission. The Atlanta Mission is an organization focusing on transforming lives of those facing homelessness.
So not only are you getting a beautiful hand made stocking, but you are providing the truly beautiful gift of giving as well.
