Decorating: Creating Beauty out of the Plain


Everyone is trying to save money and rightly so… I recently gave up my expensive moisturizer. And have switched to a less expensive old fashioned brand. It has worked great, who knew?

But the container is not as pretty as my department store brand moisturizer..


However, I found a very inexpensive solution to this container on my table side.


P.S. I hate the plate on my bedside too… but I haven’t found one I like better so far.

So I went to Marshall’s and look what I found…. for $3.99


It is Irish Crystal.

So I thoroughly cleaned the dish and added the moisturizer.


Much prettier… I like making the everyday items more beautiful.


  1. That is a wonderful idea, thanks for sharing it and enjoy your day:)

  2. What a great find! Marshalls and TJ Maxx ROCK!!! :)

    It looks just perfect there -- and glad you found a cheapo version of your hand creme to use.

  3. So pretty! And beauty in unexpected places does make the day brighter!

  4. The beautiful crystal dish does make a difference! I used Pond's cream all over my body for many years. I just might try it again!

  5. You're a genius! LOVE IT! Oh, Audrey loves the plate. :)
