Show Off Your Gorgeous Soaps with BPR Designs

While developing my Little Althea line, I met Beth Reiman of BPR Designs, who makes extremely beautiful handmade glass soap dishes (and other designs as well).

She combines stripes of complementary colors and textures to create one-of-a-kind soap dishes in a few different sizes. I especially love the bubbly clear glass and her interesting free form scribbles. There are many color combinations available and every soap dish has raised glass ridges to keep the soap dry between uses.

To see her soap dish collection, click here. I can certainly recommend her work - I have one of her dishes at my sink right now! Add one to any soap gift and make it truly special.

Definitely a high end shop, it's titled "The Quintessential Lifestyle Navigator." Pulling from around the world, their items are unique and striking. When you're in the market for a gift that will leave a lasting impression (like that interesting soap at the bottom of the page...), definitely ask Charles and Marie!

Soap Blog du Jour

Today I am featuring another international soap blogger: Sapo-Onis. This beautiful blog is in Spanish but it is all photos, so you don't need to be bilingual! Check out the amazing assortment of styles and effects featured here, including some great packaging. There seems to be a combination of glycerin and cold process soaps so there's something for everyone!

Not only will you be inspired by their photos, but the blog roll is an incredible resource for other soap blogs. They really did their homework!

If you would like to see even more (and I strongly encourage you to), check out their Flickr soap photography set as well. It's a feast for the eyes!
