Oh how funny! It's not black??? Dang, it must be the same color as that car that Sweet Hubby and I saw the other day. I still think it was black!

Isn't it nice that we understand your twine hunger so much that you had to go get cupcakes and eclairs!???

I couldn't resist Martha's bakery twine at Michael's. Now you have me yearning for some nearly black & white, too. :)

In South Carolina they'd call that Charleston green! Oh well, green, black - who cares. That twine is so much fun to use.

Congrats on naming the boat - sometimes it's harder than naming children!

SEE?!!! They always give it to you! Whenever I make a fuss about something like this, or ask to buy it, they end up graciously forking it over--it's fantastic. 'Course, you got eclairs to boot!

And, hey, green goes better as stems anyway, right?

lol

I have an attraction to baker's twine, as well. Must be because of the connection to the treats inside once the string is untied...

You can order your own twine (in red/white or blue/white) from tildas.com. Then you won't have to ask at your bakery anymore!

bakers twine...what a wonderful textural element...very visually pleasing...i must get some...blessings, rebecca

I understand the obsession. I have a bag of old bakery twine that my late aunt kept - I use it as sparingly as gold!

My obsession: the stickers that Starbucks puts on their bags of coffee. The barrista saw me drooling over the counter at them and just ripped off a few of each one. I proudly decorated a journal cover with them.

And that's the thing: being an artist let's you indulge in such sweet, simple, and childlike things.

My brother once had a boat named "Mo Betta", which meant "more better than the last boat".

LOL! To add to what I said yesterday, I also have an obsession with restaurant board coasters... You know, the ones the throw down before placing your drink on them? Well, we were at Round Robin last night, and they had some fun coasters, and I wouldn't let the waiter put my drink on it! He looked at me rather funny, and I told him I wanted to use it for my crafting.... he smiled & laughed. .. Then came back to the table with a handful!! "Here you go, so you can use one for your drink," he says. HA! A waiter after my own heart! ;)
Can't wait to see your Etsy stuff!

I'm glad I'm not the only one like that...must be in good company here. :)

I went through a bit of a raffia stage 10 years ago. My favorite boutique would snaz up each bag (brown paper - *swoon*) with lovely and colorful raffia.

My heart flutters just thinking about it.

I love reading these stories that everyone has about collecting- unexpected bits in unusual places. Make me feel right at home and a little more normal. Comforting to hear there are so many generous and kind people out there, too. Thanks for sharing!
