Re-Purposing The 'Rex

Oh how I love my Pyrex vintage-y and colorful. When I open up my cupboards in the morning, seeing the pretty 'rex just makes me smile. For me, I like to put my collection to work, carefully though. I do have one piece has seen no action, my chartreuse rimmed teacup with the copper Pyrex stamp on the bottom. I am not a tea drinker and its just not big enough to hold my coffee.

I found its purpose the other day when my package from Lauri's Etsy shop, Superior Body Products, arrived. I have ordered Lauri's *amazing* lotion bars for almost the past year. But this time, I also ordered up a Lavender and Geranium bar of soap.

So this amazing smelling soap shows up and I realize that I have no soap dishes! Hmmm...what's a thrifty gal to do but re-purpose something, right? That little Pyrex teacup worked perfectly and is now perched right next to the sink displaying the purple bar 'o soap.

My kitchen now has this lovely earthy lavender smell and I have prettied up the sink area with the Pyrex teacup.

FYI...The lovely Lauri has no idea I am doing this post. But when I find good Etsy shops with wonderful products, I just have to share! Check out her shop here, the lotion bars are to die for!

So friends in Pyrex, how have you re-purpose your 'rex? Share below or snap a picture and post it over at the Facebook page :)


  1. Ummm, I think I'm going to have to try one of her lavender lotion bars. They look amazing. The Pyrex cup makes a really cute soap dish. I use a small Russel Wright lug bowl as a soap dish in my kitchen. :)

  2. I am totally going to copy you, such a good idea! I hate my cup of coffee doesn't fit in this teacup and the poor thing gets no use!
