Ah -- zee Fwench weddeeng! Or a honeymoon in Paris -- what could be more romantic? Maybe this pair of handcrafted Christmas stockings for the happy couple's inaugural Noel as Madame et Monsieur. What bride would not absolutely love this as a shower gift?

These stockings come as a pair; they are inseparable!

The silkscreened fabric features antique typeset lettering, signatures and handwriting, all in French, of course. The cuffs are imported bronze-colored pure silk overprint with handpainted titles of their respective marital status in flat black textile paint. Each 24" long stocking is interlined with lightweight quilt batting for body and fully lined with soft pure white cotton fabric. The back of the stocking is made of a solid neutral tone cotton-linen blend with the same silk cuff.

Oh, yes, I've been to France and I realize the French don't generally use Christmas stockings, but don't you think they should? What a great way to surprise that very special him or her with airline tickets to Aix-en-Provence. With no return date.

Because of the wide repeat of the motif on the fabric, the exact placement of the lettering on your stockings cannot be anticipated; it may look just like those in the photos or vary slightly from what you see. But yours will be beautiful because every inch of this fabric is gorgeous! This pair of stockings arrives in krinkly cellophane packaging with a glossy provenance tag (no financial documents enclosed so it can be shipped directly to the recipient).

Designed, sewn, signed and copyrighted for you by a woman whose children have French blood flowing through their veins, thanks to my wonderful husband, Estienne.

Yes, you did see (part of) this pair in Southern Lady magazine in the fall of 2012.
