Pretty Holders

End of season flowers in a miniature, vintage glass pitcher.

I am always on the hunt for pretty little things that can be used in very practical ways for home keeping and organizing.  These lovely little shells do the trick as soap and sponge holders in my cottage kitchen.  As my style has evolved into a more coastal style (see a previous blog article, Coastal Leanings) they fit right in.

I picked up these two little shells from my good friend, Vince at GOOD LOOK, Inc. around the corner in Princeton, Texas.  I am grateful to know him, as he reminds me and helps me every day to see the beauty in simple things. He has recently opened an online shop where he offers his beautiful antiquities at  His wonderful eye and great style are available to the masses since he now ships.  Please give him a look, you’ll be glad you did.

What pretty little things can you use to organize your home?

I hope you find some inspiration.
