Little clover iron rest - FYI

I remember reading the thread about flimsy rests for the Little Clover iron
and the hot glue rhinestone thingy. I found a cute. teensy little cast iron
skillet *many* years ago that I use, apparently it's actually a spoon rest.
It must have been some sort of 'give away' long ago from 'Lodge' cast iron
company because I've never seen one actually for sale anywhere. Well, when
I was looking for the link to post for the powdered starch I found a place
that sells them, just incase anyone wants to get one of these things. They
really work well to lay down those little hot gadgets. NYAA. I also put some
of those little felt dots on the bottom so it wouldn't scratch up my sewing
table.

I use a tall (old) coffee mug to put mine in. (Check your local Salvation Army or Goodwill store). Without something secure to put that Clover Iron in, I was afraid I'd either set fire to my table or badly burn myself! Something others have done is super-glue the teeny iron rest to a 6" ceramic tile. It's better to be safe than sorry.

What clever ideas - I am going to go with the tile one as I have a couple of spare rectangle ones.
Thanks ladies,

I've got a tiny cast skillet somewhere in the basement. I might dig that out for Mom, and then do the tile thing for mine. Mom has used a Pyrex pie pan in the past.
I've tried the coffee mug and found it to be highly likely to topple over unexpectedly. It would fall over 2-10 minutes after I put it in the mug, so I feel it isn't safe enough for me. I felt safer using the original stand because if it was going to topple it would do so right then while I was expecting it, not after I might have left the room to do something else.
