keeping warm

Have I mentioned that it's freezing in my house?

We've added insulation to the attic, had insulation blown into the walls, and installed new storm doors, but still, it's frigid in here!

I think it's because the radiators are set into the walls so most of the heat escapes out the back vs. radiates into the room. Someday (when the mortgage is paid off) we might replace the radiators.

In the meantime, I've made this nifty rice bag:

It's filled with lavender scented rice and has a removable, washable cover. I pop it in the microwave for 4 minutes, and it keeps me warm for over an hour! It's also fab for preheating the bed before getting in at night; by the time it cools down, I'm in dreamland :)

I've listed one in my Shop, and can whip one up in pretty much any color combo your heart desires!
