Organ!zed: More new uses for old things.

In my powder room I have a liquid soap dispenser but some people like bar soap.  I do have a dish of little square soaps but they are for smelling up the room; not washing.  Since no one's ever washed with them my hands off the bar soap policy must be obvious. 


Today I rethought that, why not offer bar soap?

Problem was, no soap dish and I didn't want to go out and buy one.  They are over-priced for what they are; a place where soap can dry instead of turning to goo.   


I looked around and found two perfect solutions; one for a single bar and one for the rest.

Any idea what this is?


How about this view, does it help?


It's the glass top from a jar candle with the white plastic ring insert removed. Oh! And a few glass stones to aid in the not turning to goo thing.


The other thing's easier.


 It's the lid from a Pyrex refrigerator dish!   I have more lids then fridges and use the most perfect ones in the kitchen but that leaves me with random lids (Read: Clutter!).  Glad I found a use for them..  Um.  One of them.




I think it works, what do you think?

Cool look. White stones also work well and don't show the soap as much (if you have white soap!.
