All of these entries are pretty and creative. My favorite is number 2 - Pat's Christmas stocking. It's got all kind of detail and it's vintage, Victorian, romantic etc all at the same time :) :) :) It reminds me of the pink Christmas trees my grandmother would have at Christmas when my mom was young..(I learned this from stories)....so my vote is the stocking from Pat, Contestant #2

Hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

They're all so pretty but I have to add my support for number two, Pats Christmas stocking. I can imagine that being passed down for generations - imagining inheriting something so beautiful as a little girl? Louise x

It's very hard to pick a favourite because each and every one is beautiful (I think they all should be winners!), but if I have to pick one, it would have to be Pats' stocking.
