Godinger Hershey’s Kiss Candy Dish
Back at Christmastime I ordered the crystal replica of the Hershey’s Kiss from Godinger Crystal for Dave the Builder’s Christmas stocking gift. The busy shipping elves at Godinger mistakenly sent me a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup dish instead of the Hershey’s Kiss dish. One quick and courteous call to customer service later, the issue professionally became a non-issue resulting in a sweet deal. With all this talk and type of the rule of kiss aka keep it summer simple, container inspiration stylishly struck.
I spooned ¼ cup of the scrub into the kiss dish and added a few of the dried lavender buds for keeping it lavender rose summer body scrub stylishly scented and summer scrub simple.
I keep the remaining scrub in a lidded jar, the lavender buds nearby in a lovely vintage dish. The pairing of lavender and rose together is summer scent divine!
