Jacobs Angel Stocking


So, I am keeping my Christmas Promise and showing what was the perfect addition to my striped wall for the holiday season. A white stocking to represent our son, Jacob that passed away. The last two years I have used one of the families red stocking that matched all the others and attached an angel ornament. Now that our new little girl will need a stocking of her own and wanted them to all still match, I needed to find Jacob his own special stocking that would always be his and we could hang each holiday season.


It looks beautiful with the chalkboard and was such a pretty addition to the striped wall.


Even though, I don’t believe that people sprout wings when they pass or fly around with wings, angel wings is the symbol of something pure and innocent. Jacob is our little Angel and I wanted to represent that.


Just a simple addition of some ribbon, greenery and sparkle, it is complete.


The stocking is crochet and adds a beautiful texture to the little vignette. It’s a classic texture.


So I kept my Christmas promise (like my kids would say) and am so happy that we could represent our son. It makes me smile each time I see it (and sad sometimes) but, am happy that I could find the perfect stocking for Jacob and it’s hung in it’s own special place.

It's beautiful! I love it. We use a little sparkly white stocking ornament for Daniel. It actually looks quite similar, but I don't know what it's made of. I love what you have done. And I love you and I miss you. :)

Oh Thank you! You are So sweet! I love and miss you too! That is interesting that the ornament is similar. Great minds think alike. Miss you friend!

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love how you have done this. My daughter who was 23 was killed in a car accident 2 years ago and I've been using her stocking but I would love to do something like this for her. I'm so sorry for your loss. There is nothing that is more tragic then losing a child. Thank you for sharing this with us. I'm going to definitely try and make one for my daughter. Hugs
