These cookie snow globes are darling. We’ve all seen hundreds of variations of the mason jar snow globe but these take things to a new level. Everything in the jar is edible. Homemade gingerbread cookies, royal icing and little trees made out of hard candy are nestled in a snowy field of icing.

EXTRA CREDIT: Spring Cleaning with AirRam Sweepstakes

Blue-White-Living-Room-via-homework-[4]
Well friends, we’re almost done with spring and guess what. I never did my spring cleaning. With my son being a high school senior, it’s been a crazy year. College applications and visits, senior year events and now end of year and graduation events. Plus besides running this blog, I started working again.I don’t even want to tell you the disaster that my house has become. The picture above was taken last year when I had things a little more under control.

Once my son leaves for college (sniff, sniff), I will be doing some major cleaning and organizing. Hey, I might even redecorate his room. This AirRam Cordless Vacuum sounds amazing and would make cleaning so much easier. Lightweight, cordless and bagless. I have a really old vacuum so this would be a really nice replacement for my “vintage” heavy vacuum.

How about you? Wouldn’t you like to upgrade and update your vacuum? Enter for a chance to win one.

Aren’t these photos fantastic? My friend Izzy traveled the world for a year visiting over 24 countries and blogged about it. It was so inspiring. Just seeing these photos makes me want to pack my bags and explore. Izzy traveled with just a duffel bag and day pack but I’m more of a hotel and luggage girl.
