Apothecary Jar

I love all of the apothecary jars I’ve seen in the decorating magazines and blog-land.  I found a nice one at TJ Maxx for about $10.  It’s about 18″ tall.  I knew I wanted to use in in the master bath, but I didn’t really have a plan on what to do with it.  It sat on the counter for about 2 months while I waited for inspiration.

Finally, I decided I would put little soaps in the jar.  My sweetie travels a good bit and always brings home the hotel toiletries*.  I opened up all of the white/ cream colored soaps and wrapped them each in clear plastic wrap.  You really need to wrap them or the humidity of the bathroom will make them all stick together.  Over time, the unwrapped soaps will dry out too.

I really like the look and am glad I waited for inspiration.

*To put those hotel toiletries to great use, collect and donate them to your local homeless shelter.  They really need those small sized hygiene items.
