PH: TWELVE Yep, Twelve!

This week's PhotoHunt theme is "twelve."  Perhaps that's because of the twelve days of Christmas, but that's not what I went with this week.  (The 12th day of Christmas is actually January 6 or Epiphany or Three Kings' Day.)

Instead I took a photo of 12 of my favorite Christmas stockings.



Here are a few close-ups.



Narrowing it down to twelve wasn't easy, so I'm sharing a few of the others as well.




Just as a bonus, here's a bit of trivia: If you got all of the gifts mentioned in "The Twelve Days of Christmas," how many gifts would you have?

Answer:  364

After posting this, I learned that the reason twelve was chosen as the theme was because the person who started Photo Hunt has a son who was celebrating his 12th birthday!

Have a terrific weekend. :)

You have a wonderful collection of stockings. Great take on the theme. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy new year to come.

The photography group I formed will be 2 years old in January. Each month we have an optional theme for our members' SHOW & TELL.

Since you do "Photo Hunts," would you please suggest a theme for next month.

I'll share what happens!

And did Santa fill all those stockings?

Great take on the theme, and the stockings are great as well.

It looks like you've got about 364 Christmas Stockings. Way to go!

This is a great idea. My mom made stockings over the year. I wish I could sew.

Sorry if this is a repeat, I love all your stockings. What a great variety.

We have the original handknit ones that we got over 30 years ago for our first Christmas. They are hung up every year.
