    My next luxury is going to be this charcoal muddler.



    I bought some bamboo charcoal stirring sticks a while back, but they got lost in my house somewhere or thrown out by accident. Anyhow, apparently you can stir your alcohol, water, coffee or tea with it to remove impurities.

    Saw the ice ball makers when I was in Japan and stumbled across a festival of ice in a park, they're really cool
    They had icecubes with threads frozen through them and were using the gizmos to make ice jewellery
    I'll try and dig out some pics, it was a weird but cool event to stumble upon

    i have the maker's mark mold, too, and it works well enough. personally, i'm hoping they send wrapping paper again, this year, because i hate shopping for wrapping paper, for some reason.
