Rick Rack ~ This and That

Rick Rack Cactus are easily rooted, just look at all of those little roots ready to cling to something.
This one shoot just took off towards the sky! It will eventually lie down.

One of my favorite blogs is Reminisce...this and that. Linda talks about rick rack and her love of notions. Make sure you check out her older posts too. I have a Rick Rack Cactus that I really enjoy. It reminds me of the rick rack that was on my little dresses that mother made. It also reminds me of selling rick rack in our store. It was displayed so neatly in a rack provided by the company. If you remember, when I was a little girl, there were no Wal-Marts! I also want to sound off about the Wal-Marts discontinuing their domestic departments. That hurts us ladies that still like to piddle with sewing and quilting.

Hi Tricia and thanks for popping in to see me! Oh, what a pretty plant. I don't think I've seen one of these before. Yours look so healthy, too!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I have never seen one like that! Now I'm on the hunt for one!

And thank you for mentioning my blog! You are just the sweetest thing ever!!

Oh, and speaking of rick rack, my oldest package I ever found has the original price tag of 8 cents on the package. I guess that's how you know how old it is. I love rick rack!

Hey Friend!
I love rick rack, and I love your cactus. I've never seen one. I would love to get a piece to root. I AGREE 100% about WalMart. Why in the world did they discontinue the craft section? Crazy! A little birdie told me that you're gonna be back at VES doing a 3rd grade leave. I am SO EXCITED!

Hi! Thank you for your encouragement! It's been a long day, and I definitely needed those kind words. Also, I'm in pretty desperate need of a sub for the 25th and 26th, so if you're interested - I would love to have you come back!

Sue said...

I love that rick rack plant too! I'm native around here and haven't seen one...what's the matter with me? You'll have to break me off a piece next time you are at VES and send it. I'm with you on the Wal-Mart deal. Hope to see you soon.

Tricia - I've lost your e-mail address but wanted you to know I got your gift in the mail this week and it's planted and on my deck! Thanks so much. :) blessings, marlene
