Studio needs (or wants...whatever)

Carol Ross, The Clay Bungalow

A few days ago I had some visitors to my studio who were not close friends or family and were interested in possibly buying a painting.  As I shoddily put things in order, swept and tried to clean paint off the only comfortable chairs, I thought, 'oh I should make some tea for them.'  Which is possible thanks to a studiomate's water heater thing.  But then as the water is steaming, I realize I only have one cup which I drink out of and is totally stained and ugly.  So there was no tea.  Which reminds me that my studio is mainly functional but not quite yet comfortable.  I definitely need to buy a microwave (is that a weird thing to get on craigslist? can't decide)

But I thought it would be nice to get some interesting mugs, some that belong in a studio and also support other artists.  So I perused etsy (and 2 hours later) found some really great new shops and ceramic pieces and also some on the border of terrible and awesome.

Then in true 'give a mouse a cookie..' fashion I thought, god I should have a good apron to match these stylin' cups....
