Christmas Time in Texas

This weekend Southeast Texas got a cold front and we were blessed with 40 degree weather. We don’t get much cold here, so the cold weather was much welcomed. Normally, I like to take one holiday at a time. Thanksgiving is not here yet but the weather and my radio station  playing Christmas music got me in the mood so I decided to bring out the decorations. I went with an emerald theme this year.

Found these stocking last year at Pier One's clearance sale for 75% off
