Welcoming A Fresh New Month


August 1st….my how the summer is flying by…

I woke up with the feeling of new beginnings this morning. The last full month of summer is here. I want to make the best of it and live each day with happiness.

Today I wanted to share a batch of blue Ball jar soap dispensers I got ready yesterday. We brought a bunch of these to the Farm Chicks show and they sold out there.

So….I made up some more for a big swap meet I’m going to be a vendor at on Saturday.

I love the way these soap dispenser look and have the in my own home. I never liked the ones that are available through retail, no matter what the cost. These are just fresh and clean and look great with just about any décor.

I use a oil rubbed bronze high quality soap pump and I also use the jars with the zinc tops. I do paint the tops with a special paint used for metal. I like them better when the jar top matches the great pump.

I also started adding these fun “charms”. It’s just a great vintage lemon images that I print out on Shrinky Dink. They are attached with fishing line and can be washed when It’s tie to wash out your soap jar.


Some of you have requested that I list these in my Etsy shop….

They will be available or sale there.

They are currently available in both the quart and the pint size.








Embrace this first day of August and make the best o the last part of summer.
