Nope to ugly soap....:)

                                         I love me some pretty. This pic below? Not so pretty:(

Ok. Been to Staples lately and seen all the Martha Stewart home office stuff?? Seriously made me want to buy notebooks and calendars and tags and stickers and aaaall kinds of crap I don't need!!

I did manage to somehow convince my hubby that I needed these sweet labels:)

And I did! Because I knew that they would be the perfect thing to add to these oil jars and twine and ribbon to pretty up those hideous soaps that stare me in the face every time I do the dishes:)

Took a bottle, cut a piece of ribbon, glued it on:)

Wrote verrry specific directions on those trusty labels...

Tied the tops up with twine....

Stuck the sticker on....

Done and done!!


  1. Cute!! I just bought a couple of the large clear glass canisters that you see all over blogland. They seemed boring but you just showed me what they need. :)

  2. Oh, so cute! Much better than the plastic bottles. I think I am needing to make a Staples trip :)

    Happy 4th!


  3. I love how you added that extra touch to your bottles with the ribbon, labels and twine. I've seen those bottles used plain before, but like your idea even better!

  4. You rock! I am absolutely going to do this! I'm planning my daughter's 18th birthday, and I've "borrowed" some of your ideas (your mama's birthday and the Secret Garden party). You have such great spirit and style! Enjoy the 4th!
    Wishing every day was Tuesday,

  5. Those are awesome! Why am I never creative enough to come up with this stuff on my own?

  6. Very cute....you are so clever!!! Happy 4th of July!!!

  7. Fun Idea! You are full of them! I am sorry to say that I have ugly soaps all over the place and I thought my "Method" dispenser from Target was one of the better looking ones. Oh, the shame!

  8. I love them! I couldn't stop staring at your backsplash too, very fancy, love it!

  9. Very cute!

    Love your papertowel holder. Where is it from?

    Thx, Lorena

  10. They look fab. You have beautiful writing!

  11. Could these be any cuter? Love love love this idea!
