String Stash.

This morning a little parcel of cotton string arrived in the post.....very excited about this! I have some Christmas ideas I want to try out and I needed the string to finish things off nicely.
I'm kind of attached to my growing string stash, the huge big thing of string ( that weighs about 10kg ) I pounced on at an auction last weekend and purchased for $5......don't know what I'm going to do with that much of the big stuff but it looks good next to the smaller balls of string!

Thanks for stopping by.

I'm a big fan of string & my parents used to save it from parcels, love that idea!! I love my divine twine but that mega giant enormous ball of string, my goodness, i'm seriously impressed!! Did you roll it out of the auction, simply crazy lucky!! Love Posie
