This and That

Divine Twine
I was beyond excited to have my first order of Divine Twine waiting in the box when I arrived home from Savannah earlier this month.  The 100% cotton eco-luxe twine comes in an array of mouth watering colors, perfect for packaging treats, wrapping gifts, adorning invitations and SO much more!  Sister and I ordered together, choosing aqua, oyster and cherry to start our collection.  And don't you just adore the little notebook bitty bag cheerfully wrapped in a bundle of Divine Twine with the Whisker Graphics business card tucked inside?  I do. 
Lux Fragrances
Y'all know the only thing I love more than a package is a present package.  So not only was the Divine Twine waiting for me, but I also received this sublime set of Lux candles from bestie R.  He has unmatched taste in candles (and florals and gardens and home decor and I could go on forever.)  Aside from the fact that these are some of the most highly scented candles you can find, they are presented in heavy weight glass jars with to die for embellishments.
Vintage Finds
I absolutely love it when Mother unearths some swoon worthy relic from the past (NOT of the Cabbage Patch variety.)  And it happens more often than you'd think.  So this trip I scooted off with a vintage Starland Dairy milk bottle and old film reel (don't worry Sister, there is one for you too.)

The Starland Dairy was once located in what is now the up-and-(hopefully)-coming Starland District that I've carried on about here and here.  From what I can tell, the dairy operated from the early 1900's to 1968 when it was bought by a competitor and closed.
 
The vintage reel belonged to Mother's father and is part of a set of two that were used for viewing old films of Mother and Aunt as children.  It landed on my living room bookshelf for now but I'm not convinced that will be it's permanent home.  And, would you believe that I was flipping through the Ballard catalog the very same day I came home with it to find their Film Reel Plaques?!?  Not only is it old, but it's architectural to boot!
So that's the this and that in my world today.  I'll have to update y'all later on my super busy day at the March of Dimes Walk for Babies, new friend A's girl's birthday soiree, a baseball game and the Camp Twin Lakes fundraiser dance.  I've got to get to bed before I pass out sitting up.
