Mason Soap Jar

This is far from an original idea, but I wanted to share with you all the soap jar my hubby and I made this weekend. It was so easy and took only a few minutes to make.

You can use any type of jar with a lid, but I have an abundance of mason jars so that's what we used.

All you need is:

- a jar with a lid
- a soap pump
- a drill
- water proof glue

Wash out the jar and remove the lid -

Drill a hole the size you need for the pump to fit through the top of the lid. Glue the pump to the lid -

Fill with soap and you have a functional vintagesque accent to your bathroom or kitchen -

Cake of the Month: Volume 2

The second cake of the month is our (mostly Claire's) first wedding cake! Claire was a bridesmaid AND the super-cake decorator...in Texas! She is amazing. The day before she left, we baked and crumb frosted all nine cakes. And then Claire worked her magic when she got there.

Here are a couple photos of the beautiful cake!

Guest Blog

I was asked by a very dear friend to be a guest on her blog - check it out at all things aimee!

Cake of the Month: Volume 1

I have been a terrible blogger this month and I fear it will only get worse in October. It seems we have been going nonstop since September started and we will be out of town a total of 17 days next month! And I thought our summer was busy.

At least we get to start this month off with a bang. It is our cake of the month, volume 1! (In case you didn't catch that, you will be seeing two cakes this month!)

Keagan Harlow is one of our favorite little guys. He turned one on Sunday and his parents asked Claire and I to make a water/Sesame Street themed cake. It was fun to design and execute and I think he enjoyed it. :)

Stay tuned for volume 2 next week!
