I know that the pic isn't the greatest, but over the years, I have collected nearly 400 Santas, santa ornaments, and decorations referencing Santa. I always fill my Hoosier with them as well as my curio, my shelves, my window sills, etc. I will work on better pics for the next post.
Now, for that craft idea. Many of you know that I love to shop at Dollar Tree. Well I found these bags of 6 candy canes there.
As a tradition, I gift each of my children and grandchildren an ornament each year. My mom used to do it for my kids. She always said that when your child became an adult and moved out, they would have a memorable start to their own tree. These little ornaments can do double duty. I attached a key tag that you can find in any office supply store and wrote the name and year (one on each side) on the tag. These can be placed on their dinner plate as a place holder as well.
Lastly, I finally got a link from Colorado's Best so if you missed my segment here it is:
