You see, my mother always puts tacks on the wood and my father gets angry because he says she is ruining the beautiful workmanship. To stop the yearly debate, I set out to find an alternative to tacks and push pins.
I love this set of four pieces because not only does it hold the socks, but it is a display piece on its on. With Santa on his sleigh surrounded by toys and being pulled by six reindeer, it is a fun piece to look at. We have small kids in the house over the holiday season, and I know they will love it. You can see that it is quite heavy duty, which you need, especially if you put any treats in the socks.
For anyone looking for antique type Christmas decorations, this set will suit the purpose. Plus, all four pieces are heavy enough that you don't have to worry about them falling down every time someone moves around the room or a big truck goes by on the road. Your surprises will stay put in the socks on the fireplace!
I think what I like the most is that they are handmade and hand painted. Doing things like that is a lost art and it makes me appreciate the display that much more.
