Ode to Baker's Twine

Baker's twine, how I love thee...

That's all I could come up with. Pretty pathetic, eh? But I really do love it. It looks good on most everything, and I use to decorate all sorts of things ranging from baked goods to birthday presents.

If I ever get to build a house someday I'll build a packaging shelf just for baked goods. I'll have every color of baker's twine, glassine and cellophane bags of all sizes, boxes, and pretty much everything you could ever need to make beautifully packaged baked goods. I get chills just thinking about it.

If you ever want to buy my friendship, you can buy me baker's twine or make me caramel popcorn. We'll be friends forever.

Sidenote: I currently have a small selection of packaging materials on hand, and I was grateful to have what I needed to bag up some of the delicious caramel popcorn I made earlier this week. That way I wouldn't eat it all. Though, after distributing half a dozen bags to neighbors and friends, yesterday I was admiring the last remaining bag and its red and white baker's twine closure and I couldn't help myself. I shamelessly ate the the whole bag.

Lesley, I have to tell you that today when googling baker's twine I found this site that offers it for super cheap and immediately thought of you and this's so cheap it seems wrong...and with 3400 yards of twine I feel I may never run out so I better choose my colors wisely...
