Oh forgive me for a moment while I clap my hands and squeal like a little girl!
I got home yesterday to find a box waiting for me with these inside. My mother-in-law sent an early birthday package of a roll of cherry red Divine Twine and three packages of stripey straws from Shop Sweet Lulu! SQUEAL!
Yep, you know you're a blogger when you're thrilled to get straws and twine for your birthday.
I've been seeing this fantastic striped twine and adorable straws in photo after countless food photo on all the blogs I follow and everywhere over on Pinterest. I absolutely adore the little pop of color they can bring to pictures of baked goods.
I just know these are going to make fantastic props for the food shoots I have planned leading up to Christmas and they just make me smile from ear to ear. Have you ever seen anything so . . . happy? No? Just one of my many quirks that those colorful stripes would thrill me?
Now I just need a pile of chocolate chip cookies and some milk.
The Peanut took one look at those blue straws and claimed them as her own. Even my little girl was impressed with this cool birthday package from her Grandma. She just seemed to struggle with the idea that something this fun is all for me!
