Who needs HGTV...

After spending so many hours bloggin I really dont have time for much tv. Who needs it anyway when you have great friends with wonderful ideas coming around everyday

I was going through my daily list of friends and Miss Katie at Harrington House shared with us some of her pretty silverware. Got me to thinking ....

So I pulled some of my old stuff out...tarnished and all..

The sweetest girl, Shannon at Bless Our Nest had a post on putting the everyday stuff in something pretty. She dressed up her washingpowder in a pretty container. Now how creative is this. So I thought my calgon could use a little help.

I found this jar at TJ Max for a song. Poured my Calgon in, added a cute little spoon. Tarnish and all...

And there you have it. All gussied up thanks to my sweet friends. I feel so blessed to have all of you. It's not about having the best or paying the most. It's sharing an idea when you can and telling the world when you find a great deal. What great friends I have, THANK YOU...


  1. Susie,

    This is so cute. This idea came out great. It is so pretty it might just make you want to do the laundry!

  2. Love this post! What a great idea...I'm thinking I might need something like that. Thanks for stopping by my blog to say hello.

  3. Love this idea...especially since I am seem to have a thing for old silverware!!! Have a great weekend!

  4. Ooh! I WILL add you to my list! I love your grass planting idea, and I love the soap by the tub. I, too, will be back when I have more time. Right now I'm sneaking in this comment while my husband cleans the car! EEKS! :-) Thanks for stopping by...friend!

  5. Thanks for the shout out! :) I actually did this with my bathsalts too but I didn't have a pretty tarnished spoon... :( I had to use a sugar spoon I bought at Walmart! :)

  6. Never woulda thought about it! I have a vase (the one I bought for Kayla's b'day centerpiece), it's sitting empty on my coffee table. I am gonna buy some cute little glass beads and throw in a couple of tarnished pieces of silver!

    I will post a pic if it looks great! ~Joanna

  7. Hi there, thanks for commenting on my blog. I love to receive them!
    I love your jar. I have been looking for an apothecary jar for a long time...I wanted to put one on my tub for bath salts. I'll have to try TJ Maxx..what I really like is Southern Living at Home's..thats a gorgeous one.

  8. Love it! I've been wanting to do this but I use liquid. Wonder what I could use. Hmmmmmmm...

  9. I have some old tarnished silverware around here someplace. I'll have to try this.

    I love the grass idea. I think I have some around here, I can try to transform.

    Thank you for the inspiration!
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  10. love, love, love your blog!! I have your button on my blog and find something neat here each time I visit!!

  11. Who needs HGTV indeed ( I just canceled my cable today) I get better ideas like yours through blogs! It looks so elegant...as soon as I think my babies won't eat it, I'll have to do this!

  12. Too bad my unscented liquid All detergent wouldn't look as pretty in an apothecary jar! Your Calgon looks nice!

  13. Susie, I have been a bad blogger lately. My summer has been busier than I ever dreamed, so far. I hope to post soon. I need to take some pictures of all the projects I have been working on. You have been one busy girl. I love all the creative things you do. Will talk with you soon. Hugs Paula

  14. I hardly ever watch HGTV anymore either. There's much better inspiration in blogland! I love your use of the apothecary jar. There was a whole section in a decorating book I just read about containerizing everyday things in a pretty way. I think it's a great idea!

  15. Yum!!! I am loving that. Good job!
    I never watch HGTV....who has time?? HA! All I'm watching right now is FOX or CNN to see what's going on where my family is at in Iowa....what a mess.

  20. “You can see the techniques of the knit on this style; Bandage Dress one day we will videotape the process of how our pieces are made. Herve Leger sale They weave the base and then hand-apply everything else. And our fit is really key. Oktoberfest Dress These pieces are more like sweaters than anything else—they’re not cut-and-sew, Herve Leger Dresses they’re knits—and that’s why they fit so well. People are so surprised at how well Herve Leger fits, and I tell them it’s all about how the dresses are constructed.”And finally, we dress for what we love too. For what we just can’t resist.

  21. I enjoy your style of writing. I’m wondering in the event you might take a short look at my article and let me know what you think regarding my style. I am not a natural English speaker and so this is why I ask. https://royalcbd.com/how-to-make-cbd-gummies-at-home/
