Newest Crush

If there's anybody that's going to come to the party a day late and a dollar short, it's going to be me.

Which is why, of course, I am just now discovering the simple beauty of "baker's twine."  Absolutely charming, in the understated way that brown kraft paper or newspaper is a simple, charming wrapping paper.

Of course, once I finally began to notice this twine and find out its official "name," I see that it is everywhere. Shoot, I probably got a gift decorated with it last year and never batted an eye.

See what I mean . . . classic, simple, slightly rustic.  I love it!  Just love it!

Today, the sweetness of this unpretentious baker's twine is making me smile.

Now, here's hoping that I can find some. Because I really must have some for my neighbor gifts!!
