This time of year my cup of tea can turn cold by the time I walk the twenty feet from the back door of the house to my studio.
But that’s all in the past.
Today Jon gave me a cup warmer. It’s like a little hot plate for my teacup. Put the cup on the warmer and it keeps it hot. Take the cup off and the warmer automatically turns off. Now I won’t have suck down my tea before it gets cold. And it can help keep me warm through the cold winter days.
These little additions to my studio make such a big difference in everyday life.
A few weeks ago I got a dush mop. I don’t know why it took me ten years to figure out that a dust mop is something I should have to help keep my studio floor clean. It picks up all the threads and scraps of fabric better than a vacuum. And then I just run it along the metal gate outside my door to clean it. I don’t even have to step outside.
The other thing I recently got was a reusable lint brush. I’ve been using the tape rollers, but this works even better on my worktable and I don’t have to keep buying refills.
Okay now I’m going to wrap my cold hands around my warm teacup…
