...the little things...

~sometimes it's those little things that put a smile on 
your face
and make you go...hmmmmm~

Like my new cup warmer I keep on my craft table.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO true and acknowledging those little things helps us to keep life in perspective. So glad you are enjoying that new craft room, it will make the transition so much faster,

I have a cup warmer like that on my desk. It is nice to have the last few sips still be warm. I agree those little things do go a long way in making us smile.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I ask myself after reading this post, "why didn't I think of that?" It is a smart move on your part. I agree, it is the little things that mean the most sometimes.

Beverly @ My Sew Sweet Studio said...

Now that is a great idea. I'll be looking for me one of those.(then I won't have to pour my coffee back in the pot to warm it up)Opps! Probably shouldn't have confessed to that.


Hi Carrie,
What are you making in your craft room??!!!!
Too hot here to drink coffee or tea unless it's ice tea!

Teresa said...

Happy Day to you Sweetpea!

I love my little heater by my feet when I am cold and no one else is (o:
loved the 4th of July goodies

gracie said...

where is your cafe au lait cup?

Country Dreaming said...

Mine would be flower coaster on my sewing table--which is used for my iced tea.

Gotta love those simple things in

Happy Wednesday.

Isn't that the truth!!!
Loooove your black "cone holder" from GW, below. Not to mention the adorable cones! : )
I also enjoyed the tour of your Workspace. Darling! I especially loved all the vintage picnic baskets.
Hope you're having a great Summer.

Hi Carrie,
I have a coffee warmer too! in my office at work. They are great indeed.
I love, love the pleasant blouse you made. I saw Becky's too and she inspired me as well to want to make a few. You look so pretty wearing it and yes your fabric also reminded me of your wallpaper... LOL. I love the paisley fabric a lot.
Take care and enjoy your day,
Hugs, Elizabeth

Carrie, I so enjoyed your post featuring your crafting room. It was such a thrill to see all your wonderful ideas. The baskets, the endless shelves of jars, the ribbon. In adult life I am going to have a room just like this! By the way... whatever became of the wonderful yellow cupboard you had found? Have a great summer! Elizabeth

Stella said...

Isn't it the small thing that make life a delight. Love your red Fiesta cup too.

Oh and if we could all remember that and to live in the moment...how happy we all would be!!!

I swear I microwave my coffee 456739 times every morning. Exaggeration perhaps, but I think it helps you get the gist of how frustrating it gets sometimes :) Love that you shared this great idea...it's definitely one of the little things making my day! Thanks :)

Carrie~Hello my lil PNW friend!
My coffee is iced right now, but before I know it, these 100 degree temps will be short lived and it'll be time to pull out my cup warmer. It so handy...right up there with my tiny frother.

You've transformed your wonderful house into a lovely home. You're so creative with utilizing the space. I will certainly be applying some of these ideas in tackling my lack of storage and space in my house.

Lets chat about your AMAZING *craft center*, I zeroed in to every nook and crannie. I adore the vintage picnic baskets for storing fabrics.
You have inspired me to get my massive craft inventory under control. I could easily have two craft stores worth of inventory in my family room.

Sweet wishes,

I soooo agree! Nothing like a nice hot cup of tea while you have the glue gun fired up! :-)

Warm blessings,

Brenda@Cozy Little House said...

What a great idea! I need one of those.

pollydove said...

Hmmmm ... I have one of those for melting wickless candles - did you come up with that idea yourself??? It is quite ingenious, if you did! ;)

Deborah said...
