Aging Gracefully No. 4 – Creativity-Newness-Productivity “My Toaster Huggee”

It’s So Cute!

Toaster Huggee Black- Bella Stainless-Steel

Truthfully, as I sat in my kitchen in my new space looking at my new Bella Stainless Steel Toaster, I said (out loud) “It’s so cute!”

Next, I thought, “How can I keep air-borne germs, dust, dirt, ants, mosquitoes, flies, spiders, small flying insects, and you know, just whatever from floating into my open toaster slots?” Bam! And the idea was birthed to make a cover that protects only the opening!

So let me introduce the Toaster Huggee.Toaster Huggee Toaster Cover

If you’re a germaphobe like me, you’re having nightmares about the dust particles and other stuff that can float or fall into an uncovered kitchen counter toaster.  I’ve got a solution for you that will not only keep the germs away, but will add a little style decor to your kitchen. After you’ve paid a pretty penny for your designer toaster – why cover it or put it away in a kitchen cabinet. Display it prominently, accented with my Toaster Huggee. No, it won’t slide off, but will hug metal and stainless-steel toasters.


Toaster Huggee Toaster Covers- Various Colors

I’ve been flooded with new ideas before; Just like when a new song gets in my spirit, if it stays there then I believe I am supposed to do something with it.

Are there enough germaphobes like me who don’t want to cover their stainless steel or metal toasters because they’re cute, and match the kitchen décor? Going for the gusto, in my mind…. probably millions! I need to sell this thing…. right? But that would entail starting from scratch, learning how to sew, what materials to use, and finding out how was it going to adhere to the toaster.


Who does this at my age? Me! I do! Creativity, has always been one of my passions. Newness is exciting! I love getting something brand new – who doesn’t?  And Productivity keeps me vibrant, awake, alive, and useful. These attributes are required as we move beyond our sixties passionately. Idleness is boring; retirement is not all it’s cracked up to be. For me, and other sixty-plus year olds, understand pursuing purposeful lives is extremely rewarding.

You’ll find my item on Currently, I only have four variations for the two-slice metal or stainless-steel toasters. I will be uploading a few more colors this week. All of the items are handmade and are 100% cotton. Some of the fabrics are more lightweight than others, and are durable. These “Toaster Huggees”  toaster covers are washable in cold water with like colors and dry on a low temperature.

I am going for one size fits all, so unless otherwise noted, the Toaster Huggee is 13 inches wide and 7.5 inches deep. If you’d like a size or color made to order, just let me know.

Why is it called a Toaster Huggee? Because it hugs the sides of your toaster and won’t slip off. I know corny, but I love it!

Feedback! Yes, I welcome it. Please, feel free to let it all hang out!
