I didn't want the regular pump from a soap bottle, I wanted the big 'ol thing from my peeling metal soap dispenser.
A yucky Gingerbread latte beverage from December
The old soap pump
Glass of mostly gone ice tea
Miscellaneous glass jars that were sitting there
And a sippy cup.
Because when taking a picture, why on earth spend the extra second it takes to move all that junk out of the way?
Don't anyone get too excited over this project, or the tutorial I am about to give you.
Soap Dispenser from glass bottle - tutorial if you need it
Try to drink the Gingerbread latte because you don't want to waste it. It has been there since December, someone might want it.
Take the metal bottle lid, get a screw driver and pound holes in it till it looks like the old soap pump top will fit in there firmly.
Bonus!... the bottle lid fits right inside the neck of the pump, it doesn't show, it fits tight.
Cut the plastic straw part three different times before you get it right. That took the longest and each time I thought I had it right I put it in the soap then had to take it out and drip dish soap all over.
Screw the metal lid with the old pump top on the jar. I got lucky - it fits perfect.
While the rest of the blog world is talking about Spring and what project to start on and link up, or that your flowers are coming up, all that does is make me want to put snow down your pants.
The below self explanatory photos tell you why I'm a bit bitter.

|View as I leave to go shopping before the blizzard comes tomorrow|
|I should keep driving west till I find sun and warmth|
And just in case you can't figure this out.... the view while I use my soap dispenser looks about the same out the kitchen window. Same white stuff, different side of the house.
