Prior Lives Party - Soap Dish Sweetness

Today I'm linking up to Lezlee's Prior Lives Party for something that I use that had a prior life as something else. I must say I just love the name of her blog, Prior. I could do posts on this subject every day. It is pretty much the story of my life...reuse, reinvent, repurpose. But here is a simple one and it didn't even have to be redone. RARE for me. This is an old soap holder, I guess made out of copper, that my hubby bought for me at a garage sale. Yes, I have taught him well. I love the way it looks-almost like it has little crosses all around it. I just hung it up above my kitchen sink near the coffee pot and put my Splenda, Sweet N Low and Equal packets in it. Keeps 'em handy and gets them off the countertop!

Thanks to Lezlee for hosting this party-go see what other prior lives exist on her blog and then let us see what you have that lived as something else before!

Very cute and useful...So much better than just laying around. It is great because it is small and on the wall not taking up counter space...Lol, you do have that hubby trained well. He has a good eye. I really appreciate you linking up to my party. I'm still new at it and am amazed and encouraged when people join in and thanks for the sweet comment on my blog name! It fits me...
