This weeks Texture Tuesday is a photo I took of my new drill box I got at an antique fair recently.  Just got the faux hydrangeas this weekend.  Textured with Kim Klassen “nested” on multiply.  Used the eraser tool to erase the texture on the flowers.


I finally got around to making a soap pump out of a mason jar.  I’ve seen them around the internet and my friend bought a vintage peanut butter jar a couple of weeks ago and didn’t want the lid so I happily took it.  I bought a blue mason jar for $6 at an antique store and used the pump out of my old soap dispenser.  I did have to cut down the plastic straw part as my jar was shorter than the old dispenser.
Started with the lid.  I took it to my drill press and started with a small bit and gradually moved up several sizes.  The hole wasn’t big enough and I didn’t have any bigger bits so I took tin snips and snipped the edges of the hole and wiggled the pieces out with a needle nose pliers.  Not the neatest hole but it won’t show.

Slipped the pump in the hole and put a big mess of caulk around it to seal it and hold it in place.
Left it sitting around for a few days to dry thoroughly.
Got some clear soap so it wouldn’t look funny with a color in the blue jar.  Ginny is having her drink and admiring the new soap dispenser.
