In my ongoing bid to become more eco friendly around the house I was using bamboo soap dish holders, but found they don't last a very long time and get slimy and icky quite quickly. The alternative was to replace them with ceramic dishes which will hopefully last forever. Looking around on etsy I found Karin Findell Ceramics and cannot be more pleased.
There are some beautiful items on her site, but I was taken with the fossil soap dishes.
Do take a look at her etsy shop as she has some gorgeous creations. Not just soap dishes, but bowls and small items that would work really well in the home but also on your altar.
