I know some of you are going to think I'm absolutely silly, but I know I've got some kindred spirits out there that are going to completely understand.
I froofified my kitchen sink. Yes I did.
Did it need to be done? Did I go out and buy anything new? Of course not. I just grabbed some things out of cupboards and I have a pretty little "doing the dishes" spot. (Not that I do the dishes very often - gotta' say thanks to Worker Bee and even Baby Bee.) But shouldn't they have a sweet little spot to view while they do those dishes? (I'm nothing if not thoughtful of the people who do my grunge work for me.)
And I'll tell you the truth, I just looked at that little spot and thought this sure could be prettier when I got home from work today. No other reason than that. Sudden inspiration! (or procrastination - I'll let you decide.)
Be sure to appreciate my vintage kitchen tile. That stuff is older than me! (Over 60 years old!) It's such a weird pattern and yet, I kind of still like it. Dream kitchen would be a black soapstone and then white subway tile, but that ain't happenin' any time soon!
Started with this lovely tray.....
Added this soap dish I've had for ages. Anybody remember when Eddie Bauer had a home store? It's been in hibernation but it's back out again.
See what it's going to be used for? Bar soap just doesn't quite work by the sink - gotta' love the invention of liquid soap. One of my teacher buddies gave me the smiley face sponge. It was on Shark Tank. (Not that exact sponge my sillies!)
Yummy citrusy soaps and lotions on one end of the tray...
(Does citrus just smell super clean to you too?)
And a little vintage milk jug to hold the veggie cleaning brush on the other end.
Now isn't that pretty? Almost makes me want to do the dishes. Almost.
Do you ever get that urge? I think I'm all about dressing up the utilitarian!
Thanks for buzzing along with me.
Making a Sweet Bee family classic tonight for dinner....
