just to add fuel to the firey addiction that is etsy, i purchased these bad boys the other day from a store aptly named 'string'. i plan on using them for anything and everything. including wedding-related paraphanalia (blue and white). the red and white has plans to wrap christmas presents. there is just something so humbling and genuine about kraft paper and baker's twine. i hope i'm not the only one who sees this and my that friends don't think i'm totally cheap for avoiding wrapping paper.
and yes i do love/own two copies of the sound of music.
