And then there's the fact that Sasha, the lovely blogger at LMM loves the Lord -- same as me. She is sweet, thoughtful, and full of thought... if you know what I mean. [Speaking of thoughtful: I ordered a necklace from her ETSY SHOP. As part of the order process, I typed her a little note that said I was excited to receive my necklace -- that I had set aside some birthday money to get myself this treat. The other day, the necklace came in the mail with a "Happy Birthday!" tag attached. How sweet is that?]
Anyways, I love to read Sasha's heartfelt posts about her family, and about lessons in faith. She also has lots to share about her home.
A couple months ago, I was struck by THIS POST -- one of those posts about making simple things beautiful. I'm all about that these days. And, if I can do it without spending a lot of money? All the better. While I enjoyed the entire post, it was this picture that caught my eye. It's dish soap in a beautiful corked decanter.
While I've often admired the beautiful color of dish soap sitting on my counter-top in the sunlight, I don't keep my soap on the counter because the labeled bottle isn't particularly beautiful.
But now? Well, color me inspired! I sent a message to Sasha asking where she had found such a pretty bottle, and she directed me to Pier 1, saying the bottles were not expensive. (She was speaking my language! This bottle was only $6.00.)
Of course, the soap was already at home... waiting for the perfect bottle. Here's what I came up with:
Seriously, how pretty is that soap in the sunlight?
And here's the final result on my counter-top. (Did you notice a sneak-peek of it yesterday in my post?)
Another happy ending.
Thanks for the inspiration Sasha!
