Kitchen Joys

I just made a delightful discovery this evening while musing on ways to beautify my kitchen sink area. A small glass vinegar jar ("Bragg's" brand at least) is just the right size to receive the squirty lid from a plastic Ivory dish soap bottle! The cap just screwed right onto the glass bottle. So now I can use my Ivory soap from this lovely bottle. A couple of shakes dispenses just the right amount of soap. No modernish plastic and wearing-off labels. The sunshine will shine through it so that I can see all of the little air bubbles in my soap. Beautiful. I am thrilled. I also found a way to store my dish washing cloths...clean and folded and neat in my nifty enamelware pie plate/hanging basket thing. I look forward to keeping my sink area clean so I can enjoy these new changes in all of their rustic homeyness.

I'm sure it's a joy to walk into your kitchen and see something so fun that you've made! Yay!!

This is so you, and such a great idea :) I am reminded whenever I read Proverbs 31 that the verses talk about her well-made and beautiful clothes and furnishings for herself and her household- I'd say beautifying the kitchen fits in nicely :)
