Have you seen all the cute snowy jars everyone is doing around Blogland? I adore the sweet scenes of little cottages nestled in sugar or salt in jars of all sizes, clustered together on a mantel or shelf. I have seen some that are perfect in their simplicity with just an ornament or a pine bough as the star attraction in the jar, too.
After icing some cut out cookies the other night, I was looking around my kitchen and thought "How cute would it be to create a little scene in sugar snow in jars with cookies??" I grabbed my sugar, scouted down some jars of different sizes and literally plopped some cookies in to create miniature forests or fields of snowmen!
