Good, clean, fun.....

Happy Labor Day! Or as I like to call it - "hip hip hooray, the kids go back to school tomorrow Day"!

So what did I buy at the Queen of Tarte's Flea Market sale, you ask?

Well, first, remember I was restricted to purchasing only items that would fit into the little bit of suitcase space I managed to reserve....cause a girl can't travel with just one pair of shoes!

Inspired by a recent idea from Country Living magazine, I purchased an old canning jar (from Barn House) that I {well, actually my handy dad} turned into a soap dispenser!

How adorable is this!

This is a 100% repurposed project as the pump was formerly used in a shampoo bottle! Oh my goodness, I feel so *green*! It sits nicely next to my kitchen sink on an adorable tray (from Anthropologie) along with a candle, a necessary kitchen item, because who doesn't find cooking by candlelight enjoyable!

Back tomorrow with "my Labor Day weekend in pictures".... oh, it's been one of those weekends!
