Bakers twine and booties

So, it happened. I finally got my hands on some bakers twine. I’ve been refusing to spend more than, say, twice as much as I would spend on a normal ball of string on the stuff. (Seriously, Anthropologie, £15/$30 on a bit of string?) but at the same time just really wanting it.

So you can imagine my joy when I found it cheaper than normal string in Holland.

I forgot my camera this day so that blurry blackberry picture is the only one I have of the totally amazing shop where I procured this string for a mere €2.60 per roll. It had all manner of amazing household goods (and clogs…) piled high in wooden cubbies. And bakers twine at a price so cheap that when I asked Mr V what colour I should get, he said: “All three.” Yay!

I also found these truly scrumptious knitted booties in Amsterdam. It was love at first sight.

As luck would have it, two days after I got back from Holland, I was off to a baby shower for a dear friend in the West Country. So I bought those booties (for about €7) and put my bakers twine to good use when I got home.

Hip hip hooray indeed!
