I also wondered why Frank got the bigger stocking, thus meaning she received more loot than Gertie. Why were they mean to Gertie giving her the smaller stocking? What did poor little Gertie ever do? And, why oh why, did they have to name her Gertie? These stocking have been at the bottom of one of my Christmas tubs all this time. Each year I get them out and smile at them, then I repack them. This year, with my all vintage decor, I decided to hang them up and enjoy them. And, I love them! Merry Christmas Frank and Gertie.
But, the main reason I love Emily so much this time of year is because of this:
One of my other favorite things is Emily. Emily is a funny little handmade doll that my M om gave me years ago. She always sits in her cherry red $1.00 yard sale rocking chair in my living room.
At Christmastime she wears this cute little elf outfit. It says "Santa's Little Helper" on the front. It is a size 0-3 month and it fits her perfectly.
