~Pretty Glass Bottles Come in Handy~

An idea I  stole borrowed from Martha Stewart's book "Good Things" is to put alcohol decanter toppers into glass bottles that can be then used to store dish soap or olive oil. 

Don't they look pretty on the counter top?  Much better than an ugly plastic bottle. 

{ugh-my hideous blinds}

I have used one bottle for dish soap for years but recently found another pretty bottle to house olive oil. After cleaning out my laundry room cupboards I found the triangular one which I am giving to my sister as a gift to add some pretty to her kitchen as well. 

Now I am going to be on the lookout for bottles with unique shapes to fill with soap, oil or  vinegar. 

Wouldn't they make great hostess/host or teacher's gifts?


  1. love these! i have been meaning to pull my one out and find some more! gotta love martha!

  2. Love it! I have a pretty bottle for my vinegar in my kitchen, I like the soap idea too! And your right, a great gift idea :)

  3. Beautiful Barb! I keep my olive oil & vinegar in similar bottles on my counter. I am always reaching for them so it's nice to have them out and ready!

  4. Ahhh, just the right touch. No more ugly soap bottles. I actually have a bottle similar to those with olive oil in it. I never thought to put dish soap in one. Thanks

  5. I learned that trick from Martha too and keep my dish soap in a lovely wine bottle!

  6. Cool! I'd never have thought of this. I need to find me some of those whatever they are for bottles!

    LOVE it! Thanks for linking up to SNS!

  7. That's a great idea, as the thrift stores often have pretty bottles with no tops.
