Not much to report in terms of projects complete this weekend but I wanted to share one of those little touches that make me smile.
World, meet my dishwashing soap bottle.
Dishwashing soap bottle, meet the world.
I remember seeing this idea in one of those early days of my discovery of Martha Stewart. I thought 'How simple but beautiful!' (which is what I often find myself thinking when I read anything by the genius team at Martha Stewart) but never got around to putting it to use in my last house.
Now I finally can and I've put my own spin on it. Instead of using an olive oil bottle, I've used a vintage bottle that I bought on ebay a while back.
I know its hard to read but it says something like:
Brooklyn, New York
Just something a little fun to go with my old house and a very easy way to add some character without doing very much.
Im going to try to find something similar but smaller to put in the downstairs bathroom. Until I find a suitable vessel, I have this hand soap in there. Its not as sleek as zero packaging but I have to give this company kudos from trying to make something attractive. Why don't more companies do this?
PS: I'm not quite sure what Caltrate Magnesium would be taken for and/or why it would be in liquid form but I find a lot of old bottles packaged potions and lotions that aren't too common anymore. Case in point, the goodies I found in the original medicine cabinet here. Oil of Wintergreen isn't something I keep on hand :)
