DIY VINTAGE LOOKING BELL JAR ORNAMENTS!!!

DIY Vintage Inspired Bell Jar Ornaments



    I absolutely love bell jars! My favorite holiday decorations are small vintage bell jar ornaments with sweet little snow scenes in them! I have been wanting to make some of these tiny cloche ornaments for a long while now, but have had a really hard time finding the little glass belljars anywhere. Recently I was at the dollar store and saw some plastic wine glasses. They were the right shape, so I decided to give it a try, and they actually turned out to be a pretty fun substitute! These little ornaments are easy to make! I had so much fun making them, I went back and bought more wine glasses to make more!
Here’s What You Need: *Plastic Wine Glasses *Dremmel or Utility Knife *Chipboard (cereal boxes, etc.) *Scrapbook Paper *Rubber Cement *Trinkets *Glitter *Large Beads *Pipe Cleaners

VANILLA CAKE WITH STRAWBERRY CREAM FROSTING!

My little girl turned two a couple of weeks ago, and we had a bunch of her little friends over to celebrate (as well as their families. It was quite the shin-dig.) I needed a large cake so everyone could have some, and after the chocolate cake fiasco* from her first birthday, I wanted to try something in the fruity spectrum. Plus Sophie’s crazy about strawberries. *Last year she ate chocolate cake by handfuls, broke out in a rash from getting it all over herself, then threw it all up an hour later. Happy 1st Birthday!









Hint: Refrigerating the cake for a few hours makes it LOTS easier to cut into layers.






This was the first time since my cake decorating class over a year ago that I used my frosting bag and tips. Writing on cake is not my forte. She’s also crazy about bu…

PARIS AIR SHOW FROM FRANCE!

The Paris Air Show (Salon International de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace, Paris-Le Bourget) is an international trade fair for the aerospace business. It is held at Le Bourget Airport, North Paris, France every odd year, alternating both with the Farnborough International Exhibition and Flying Display and the Internationale Luft- und Raumfahrtausstellung Berlin.
    The Paris Air Show is a commercial air show, organised by the French aerospace industry's body the Groupement des Industries Françaises Aéronautiques et Spatiales (GIFAS) whose main purpose is to demonstrate military and civilian aircraft to potential customers. It is one of the most prestigious in the world; traditionally, some major sales contracts are announced during the show as part of the corporate communication of the manufacturers. All major international manufacturers, as well as the military forces of several countries, attend the Paris Air Show.
