Tuesday’s Find…a boot scrape

I need one of these.  Gardens are muddy and those wimpy little boot brush things to put outside the door don’t do the job.  This boot scrape is elegant in its simplicity and utilitarian design.  It  would fantastic outside my cottage door.

This spring has been especially wet in the gardens I work in.  My mud shoes and boots are always full of other people’s muck–sometimes up to the ankles and my kitchen floor (I don’t have a mud room) is always dirty.  I’m tired of sweeping and mopping the floor (I don’t have help either) and if I take my boots off outside they never dry out and they’r oh, so cold, in the morning! It’s available from M. Finkel and Daughter in Philadelphia.
