If I ever get to meet Martha Stewart, the first thing that I'm going to ask her is if she really has a basket full of clean, unused slippers for guests to use upon arrival into her probably-beautifully warm home BECAUSE THIS IS THE KINDEST THING I'VE EVER HEARD OF.
Sidenote: I'm always annoyed when I see people wearing outdoor shoes in their own home. I used to think it was just a thing that actors did on television shows, but apparently it's RAMPANT behaviour if you live in the States. Why the hell would anyone be comfortable doing this? You're in a home that you own (or rent) and you want to walk around like you're an unwelcome stranger? How does that make any sense? Relax! Take your damn shoes off! Bask in home comfort!
Anyway, this is the nicest idea in the world. I have a pair of (dollar store) slippers in my closet that I just bought for the next person who stays at our house, but I literally DREAM of the day when I can buy numerous pairs (in varying sizes!) of some kind of money-brand like Bed, Bath & Beyond slippers or something and display them in a beautiful basket by the front door. And chances are - you make a lot more money than me, so you should probably get on this NOW. So f-ing nice.
(Are Bed, Bath & Beyond slippers even high quality? Probably not. How the hell would I know that, though? I'm not in the income bracket that allows you to know where to purchase lofty slips! I will be one day, though. And that's gonna be sweet as hell.)
