Crafter's ornament, Thrift Town to the Rescue! ~ song "Mary Did You Know?"


This crafter's ornament was a TSF last month at the Cameron Park Snowline Hospice Thrift Shop and the kerchief from a remnant bag.  The lady I have in mind as a recipient is a skilled knitter and a frequent visitor to ravelry.com.

I needed to pick up 4 Christmas stockings and a few more decorations - Thrift Town on El Camino Avenue in Sacramento had just what I was looking for .... white stocking ($2.99), red stocking ($1.49), and mini Beanie Baby of the Jingle Beanies Collection (.49).


















A green and gold table runner ($1.99), tree tie ($1.99), mauve stocking ($2.99) and angel stocking ($1.99)


Lastly, the gold-toned silk flower arrangement ($5.99), that coordinated perfectly with the gold-toned poinsettias as table pieces for the company Christmas party.




Bonus - that I used my coupon (purchase $15, receive $5 off) to obtain two of the stockings as freebies!

What I am listening to Michael Crawford A Christmas Album.  LOVE his voice (think original Phantom of the Opera), "Mary Did You Know?" is enchanting.
