Our Christmas stockings (pictured above) are a combination of the Fortuny Simboli pattern for my husband and me, with their coordinating solids for our three sons. Even I am not going to stuff chocolate Santas into a Fortuny stocking for a 13-year-old boy! I love to layer thistle into our garland. It adds a lot of color and depth and you can hardly tell the difference from when it’s fresh to when it dries out.
It’s timeless, beautiful, and would look equally good in a modern or traditional home. It has taken me four years to come up with a “Fig & Dove” nativity scene, but I”m excited that we are working on prototypes for one for 2020!
