Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

In my mind, I have already featured this gal like 14,000 times.  I love her site, but I always think I’ve already featured her great ideas.

DecorChick

I love decorating and I love thrifting….when they both come together, I am one happy camper!  Creating a well decorated home being innovative has so much more appeal than buying everything at Pottery Barn or Pier 1…….What talent’s in that?

This idea is genius….maybe I’m late to the party, but this is a great idea that I’ve never seen.  We all love painted pots…..

imageThose are the same pots…….imageimagethen she placed them in the window above her door.  Genius!  Yep, I’m stealing that idea.  Anyone else with me?imageHere’s another idea that I’ve only seen a couple of times.  Take one old cute mason jar……..imageGrab a pumper out of an empty bottle……make sure it’s a good one….nothing worse than one that doesn’t pump.imagePunch a hole in the lid of the jar…….she has a whole tutorial…..and you’ve got yourself the most darling soap dispenser that ever graced this Earth!image How about more cute pots?  Terracotta pots are inexpensive and make such cute decor.image   

She too has jumped on the Rosette band wagon…….and I’m so glad she did.  This wreath is very cute.  Perfect for any room.image I couldn’t help but notice how perfect her bows were…..and here’s another example below with a fab chalk board.  We love our chalk boards.image     Once again………I have never seen this.  I’m a fan of painting just about anything for the sake of decorating, but a book?  YES!  A book!imageLooks good already…….imageI knew I should have bought that stamp…….image    SHUT UP!  Can you believe it?  This opens up SO many great ideas.  You could do themes for holiday’s, seasons………oh the wheels are turning!image Then take that cheese cloche you found at Good Will, fill it with anything birdy, place it on top of your newly painted book……and you have yourself one of the cutest things ever.  Pottery Barn eat your heart out.image

OK!  NOW I know I’ve featured her!  :)

Off you go to smother her with TCB reader goodness. Surprise her…….I never let my features know ahead of time.

Come back tomorrow for Get Your Craft On- We had over 250 links last week.

I love that mason jar soap dispenser! We're working on developing liquid soap for our line of 100% natural soaps (that's the trick, it has to work right but be 100% natural) and this dispenser would be perfect for them!!

Well, given that I just found both of you last night, this was a pleasant surprise to see her featured on your blog today!

She is very creative and I can't wait to dig through both of your archives!!! I know it's probably gonna have to be when my boys are asleep because I can see myself being hooked!

Have a great day!
