Lookie at what I did?

I saw this in my Cambria Cove catalog and really loved it.

I even HAD to have it.

BUT I wanted to put one together myself. I did oodles of searches for Robin Egg Soaps and kept finding HERS -- all the same maker -- hmmmmm maybe I'll just have to cave and buy it from her after all?

Then a friend alerted me to some soaps at Pier 1 Imports............and they were on CLEARANCE! Oh my heart be still.

Short story is that I found them at my local Pier 1, along with a larger apothecary jar (in my opinion much nicer than the one pictured above) and bought a bunch of the egg soaps.

Then the next day I went back and bought all that they had left to fill my pretty jar. Did I mention mine was larger?? Umkay, so I didn't spend a ton less than the original, but mine is quite nice and I have the satisfaction of saying 'I did it myself!'

Here's the reveal:

Theirs held 16 soaps and mine holds 24. I probably could squeeze more inside, but like I said -- I bought ALL of them LOL. And looky how purty my bird branch candle matches.


  1. I love it! And yours is better because you did it yourself!!!

  2. Love it! I did something similar for my master bath several months ago. I got my soaps from Dawn at The Feathered Nest blog, in case you were looking for more and she has the almond/cream colored with flecks, too.

  3. Ack...I love this! Especially this fun turquoise color too! Thanks for linkin' up to Frugalicious Friday! And I followed too. :)

  4. That is beautiful! Love the look.

    Happy Easter sweet friend! ~Melissa :)
