    I love the seahorse soap dish! The color is lovely and it seems like a perfect way to display your homemade soaps.

    Thanks for the link.
    My buddy has a woodshop where he makes handcrafted wooden toys that he sells at craft fairs.
    I'm guessing he could whip me up a dozen of those in less than an hour.
    I may have him make me a few.

    Right here, silly!
    If those were "minimalist", then I suppose I would have to call mine "the downright lazy-(wo)man's wooden soapdish"! lol

    I used to make my own wooden soap dishes out of a length of decorative wood trim from Lowe's. I just cut the length of trim into smaller 4" lengths, sanded them down, and sealed/varnished them with waterproof deck seal:

    I made this wood thing yesterday, it is gum tree sticks trimmed with secateurs and stuck together with hot glue, I've made a few of them in fact. They can be made for any soap dish, saucer, plastic container etc...

    I love the seahorse!

    I was thinking about asking a ceramic artist to make me a custom soap dish for my triangular soap, when my sister-in-law, who is a stained glass artist, said she had just found the perfect mold for making a triangular dish. Here's a picture of what she made for me:


    It even has little bumps to provide air circulation under the soap. I am thrilled with the results!
