Now you see it ...... Now you don't


The ugly SOS pad ....


Now tucked away in this cute little sugar bowl/planter found at the thrift store...


Mm hmm... This will look much better sitting next to the sink.

Spring continues to bloom in New England (sigh.... I am in love with the weather right now)

Yup, This looks much better so much so that I had better find a sweet little pot to hold mine. Right now I am using a little plastic dish for the sponge on the sink. Do you use a cloth or sponge in the kitchen? Inquiring minds want to know.
Have a great day Donna.
