Time spent with family is always a pleasure... My brother, Jeff, and his wife, Brenda, have been in East Texas the past couple of weeks. We spent one whole day in Gladewater, the self-proclaimed Antique Capital of East Texas, gathering supplies for this simple project.
We searched high and low for the "perfect" little soap dishes... and scented soaps...
I was excited to find this Hoenig of California Pottery apple from the 1950s for one of my dishes.
Brenda and I made simple crochet wash cloths from cotton yarns... pattern here. I tried several and this one was the one I liked best (for my tension and the way I crochet) ... so far. I didn't do the edging (put it in and took it out... I just like the VERY simple look of this cloth).
These soaps were particular favorites because of their packaging as well as their scents... Green Leaf Market.
Each one has a scripture printed on the side...
These soap dish sets were such fun projects to gather and make with Brenda. Simple pleasures...
We have so enjoyed their visit!!!
"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
LOVE these Rolling Retirees!!
Until you come again.... love and hugs dear brother and sis-in-law!! Thank you so much for rolling through with us!!
