Someone once told me “life is short, make everything pretty”. I try to live by that.
I have a mint julep cup holding my toothbrushes, a ceramic canisters holding my wooden spoons on my kitchen counter and have pictures hanging on the wall in my closet. One of the places where I wasn’t living up to that saying was, my makeup brushes.
I’m really embarrassed to say, but my makeup brushes were in a…red solo cup, there I said it!
I knew I must do something about this! I was on a quest to find a pretty vessel to hold my make up brushes, and I needed some kind of beads to hold them in place.
Years ago, I went to a New Years Eve Party and they had these adorable little costume diamonds thrown all over the table, something like that would be perfect. I went looking at the local craft store but, all I found were different size costume pearls, 2 problems with the pearls;
1. I was worried eventually the coating on the pearls would rub off.
2. The pearls had little holes in them to be strung, and that wasn’t pretty.
Then I went to Hobby Lobby asked a few sales people but, they had no idea what I was talking about. Then It hit me…The Bridal Section! And what do you know, they had exactly what I was looking for.
How cute are these little costume diamonds? With the biggest hurdle conquered, I was off to find a glass vase. This is What I found.
Because I wasn’t sure how many boxes I would need, I purchased entirely too many. 4 to be exact. I only used 2, and it’s a fairly large vase.
This is how my make up brushes look. Pretty!
