Well, I was driving by the bakery. Sort of.
And it was a very good day for cupcakes. O, and those eclairs. O, well, nevermind. The counter girl listened to my request for the black and white twine way at the end of the other counter, rolled her eyes....seriously, and I can't blame her. The other counter girl way across the bakery shouted...It's not black and white. It's just plain old dark green! Three different counter girls cut, considered and confirmed...definitely not black and white.
My girl....way at the end of the counter with me, the most annoying customer of the week...says with a sweet smile, okay, how about I just cut some off and give it to you? Um, thanks, that would be so nice. I would love that. Really. (wow, Lauren, you were right!)
And because he finally got the boat back in the water and named it after 9 years of suggestions (Erin came up with Betta...which is Better the way he says it with his Brooklyn accent), they are for him.
Collages go to etsy tomorrow- after a ridiculous build-up. Thanks for all the blog-love and interest. Sheesh, they're just bits and pieces of stuff, but they'll be wrapped to go with baker's twine- the nearly black, but actually dark green and white. xoC
