Better than Easter Eggs!

April 6, 2011

So I freely admit that I have an addiction.  If I see something I like I have to have it in every single possible color.  I’ve had it as long as I remember.  My favorite present when I was little was the big box of 4 million different colored crayons.  And spring weather brings this addiction right to the surface.  Last year instead of Easter eggs in my basket I had washi tape. Lots of it.  And this year I have this.

Divine Twine in every color.  Eeep!  One of my favorite etsy shops, sugarbsupplies, recently listed sample packs of twine, I know, awesome right?  Ten yards of awesome in every color.  I could hardly order it fast enough.  And it arrived this week, and it is just so pretty.  Last year sometime I picked up a bunch of vintage wooden clothespins at the thrift store and last night I spent a few minutes wrapping all my twine around those cute pins.

And I am pretty sure that a Pyrex bowl of colored twine is quite possibly the best Easter basket I’ve ever had.  Well, you know, except for last years.  Next year maybe I’ll splurge and buy a whole spool of each color!  Sigh, I’ll stick with my little clothespins for now.

They are so pretty.  It kind of reminds me of candy in a bowl, or ice cream. And I should be eating it with a spoon.  Or something.

    Ooh, I’ve been eyeing these lately, too. Especially the green, yellow, pink, turquoise and orange… but you’re right, having the rest really does seem to even things out… Love. As usual.

    OK, so I am a self professed Crafty Girl and I love to see the pretty pictures. But, and pardon my ignorance, WHAT can you do with that love twine you bought (besides just having it look pretty on your table?) Just curious that’s all. Very pretty!

    I would rather have those pretty twines too!! Clarice

    Okay these are so cute. I want to find those cute wooden clothespins and do this with my ribbon. I love the different colors of twine, but what do you use it for? The only thing I’ve really seen done is wrapping gifts. I’d love to know what else they can be used for to make me feel justified in buying them :)

    Who are all these commenters who think there needs to be a reason to buy gorgeous coloured twine? BAH! Hitting etsy now….

    I have visions of you, banana split on the side, wrapping your precious twine all evening while waiting, waiting, waiting. He’ll be home soon. Have a nice afternoon with your family!

    So adorable!! Not to mention your beyond adorable type-writer and Jimmer fashion makeover. You have a lot of goodness going on at your house.

    these look cute, but the pegs are missing faces :-) I used to make little peg families when I was a child, this picture reminded me of them, happy memories…

    ooh, my likey a lot! I share your addiction to having one of each color and I share your passion for twine. I bought spools in 5 colors last fall from Papertrey Ink and have been eyeing the Martha ones at Michaels for some time. I think the samples in so many colors was a great find! I recently took scraps of ribbons from my, ahem, considerable collection – they get used, honestly, that’s why I have scraps – and bought a pack of tiny spools from Michaels and wrapped some up. Only problem is they wont stick (used glue dots) so I have to rewrap. And I didn’t have enough scraps (in the colors I wanted to display) and I haven’t mustered the courage to cut into the non-scraps yet. *insert eye roll*

    And for the person not knowing what to do with the twine, it’s getting used everywhere, from gift wrapping little presents (use instead of ribbon), to scrapbook pages and cards. I bet you can google “baker’s twine” and look at dozens of images of samples.

    and you should probably put nutella on it. (you know, before you eat it all up!)

    SO cute! Why do you have to keep introducing me to things I will love and possible never use because I love it so much! I love wooden clothespins for ribbon (and twine!) storage. :)

    {gasp} I. Love! that is awesome! I’ve loved baker’s twine for years thanks to Martha Stewart. I *adore* what you’ve done with yours. A fun display, for sure.

    I knew Bakers Twine came in a bunch of new colors, but not that many and not that many pretty colors! I love how you’ve displayed them on pegs.

    Just saying hi and hope I get to meet you at the Quilt Market Meetup!

    cheers,
