The Mittens Were Hung by the Chimney

I thought it would be fun to hang some mittens by the fireplace.  I saw this idea somewhere using miniature mittens; but, being the practical one that I am, I could not see putting in all the time to knit mittens that no one could wear and with 12 grandchildren someone can always use another pair of mittens.  These were knit using 'Spud and Chloe' Sweater. That is my grandmothers tea pot.  It says Lipton on the bottom.  I wonder if she saved stamps to send away for it ... or maybe box tops?  My sisters and I would get the fun job of putting all those S&H Green Stamps and Gold Bond Stamps into the books to be sent in for redemption.
