Today I am joining A Stroll Thru Life for a Holiday Cloche Party.
I have these in my kitchen. Normally they are filled with fruit, but since it is Christmas I thought that I would add something sweet. I thought they were a cute touch with my other decorations including the darling Merry Christmas blocks, and the hand painted Cookies for Santa plate that I had done last year with Katie Lee's hand print . I don't have a fire place, so I hung our stockings on this old chest of drawers. I painted it right after Donnie and I married. It was his mother's, and I just love the look of it.
I saw red hots with peppermint on top in a magazine just lately which gave me this idea.
I used Mike and Ike's for this jar because I loved the colors and I had them left over from a Thanksgiving project that I did with my class at school.
Finally, I have a jar of Old Fashioned Hard Candy. I do not like these candies, but I buy some every year. Growing up my Papa McNatt always had a candy dish of these sitting in his living room at Christmas time, so I always buy some just to think of him.
