Works-For-Me Wednesday

I got this heavy duty fabric basket on sale recently for $7.99. It has rope handles on the ends that you can't see, and it's about sixteen inches long so it's not some teeny little thing. I got it to hold my hair dryer, diffuser (did you see that mass of curly hair in the picture?), wipes for quick bathroom clean-ups, and other personal items that you don't just want sitting out for the world to see. I love it, and it fits on this little shelf we use in our bathroom perfectly.
I have never liked bathroom cup dispensers. I don't know what it is about them, I just don't care for them. But I have also never come up with a viable option...until now! I love gerbera daisies, and I started looking for a daisy dish online the other day thinking I might find something small to put my little hair clippy things in. Well, has things that the Target store does not have, and oh my, do they have daisies. They have these gerbera daisy condiment/dip bowls in a set of four (includes pink, orange, red, and yellow). I got them yesterday from my favorite UPS guy, and here is the pink one. It's now the proud holder of bathroom cups. Isn't it cute, even if you can't see the center. Although it didn't get pictured, the red one is holding those hair clippy things I mentioned. Maybe another day.
This is some of what works for me in keeping my bathroom neat and tidy.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your daisy cup holders. I never liked the regular holders either - they seem too institutional or something.
I noticed in your profile that you are a military family. We were in Virginia a few months ago to see our son graduate from his advanced training at Fort Eustis. He is in Korea now. I've enjoyed my visit here and will be back.

What a cute idea for those bathroom cups! I hate those plastic dispensers, too. Now that I see you clever little idea, I may have a vintage dish that just might do that trick.
Can't wait to read you post on your grandmother's aprons. A blog friend, Betsy @ myfivemen.blogspot.som did a great post on aprons just today! I've got to start looking at my old family pics, too.
