Whimsy Farm Twine - PENELOPE

Hello! Today the spotlight is on  Whimsy Farm Twine in Penelope.

I styled a party on the weekend 
(with my Whimsy Farm Parties hat on)... 

and Penelope was featured here and there.


... and there!

Penelope was perfect for this party, as it had a pig theme. 
In fact, this was a pignic.
The pink, white and brown twine had me thinking of muddy pigs!

The Penelope twine was used to hang the paper bunting.

Here's a close-up of Penelope (with a party peg).

My favourite Penelope picture is this one: 

A Penelope twine spool vase! Perfect for a piggy pink Carnation.

Remember, I love to receive your photos of the different ways you all use Whimsy Farm Twine!

Until next time,

Whimsy Farm Twine - HANNAH

I introduced five new colours to the  Whimsy Farm Twine  range last week, and the results are in -  Hannah  is the most popular!

I must say, I'm a little surprised. I like the blue, green and white combination, but I thought the bright pink, pale pink and purple twine ( Amelia ) would be the winner. But I'm a pink girl!

I've used Hannah here to pretty-up some gifts.  

And looking at that picture, Hannah could be moving up on my list of favourites!

So there we have it - some Hannah in action for you.

Happy Twine-ing!

Til next time,

FIVE New Twine Colours!

Today is a very exciting day for me - I'm adding FIVE new colour combinations to the Whimsy Farm Twine range!

I'm nearly giddy with happiness. I love these colours. I really can't choose a favourite. Let me introduce you to Hannah.

Hannah is made up of pale blue, green and white. Hannah is named after a lovely cow I used to own, who was always cool and calm in the face of a crisis. (Hannah had bad hips and would sometimes fall down awkwardly - she was always very patient with me while I tried to stand her up.) I find this colour combination feels calming.

Next we have Penelope.

Penelope is pale pink, brown and white, and named after a spotty brown and white cow with a pink (also spotty) nose, who just loved a scratch along the neck.

And now we have Annabelle.

Annabelle wasn't bright pink, aqua and white! She was all black (unusual for a Holstein) apart from a white tip at the end of her tail. She was gorgeous! I think this twine is gorgeous, too!

The next 'girl' I'd like to introduce you to is Matilda

Red, white and blue twine! Just last week I was asking what you would call a red, white and blue twine. I received so many wonderful suggestions (Dame Edna, anyone?) but my favourite (and possibly most often suggested) was Matilda. Which suits me fine, as I had a cow named Matilda. She had great big long legs and was almost as spotty as a dalmatian. Her father was called Luckystrike, and he had plenty of spotty daughters. For those that wanted to know.

And lastly, I think this one could be my favourite. Because as soon as I saw it I went "Ooooh!"

I give you... Amelia

Amelia is made up of bright pink, pale pink and pale purple. I've been wanting this combination for a long time, but I never thought it be this pretty! So pretty! I love it. Amelia was a very sweet cow of mine; she was nothing special on paper but she was mine, and she was so, so sweet.

Here's the a shot of the 'herd' all together.

I hope you like the new colours as much as I do!

Twine in the SPOTLIGHT

This post is to celebrate my 605 likers on Facebook! 605! Thank you so much, each and every one of you.

And so I tried to think of a giveaway prize that would thrill most of you. What would make nearly everyone I know happy..?

How about a Spotlight voucher?

I'm sure I just heard a few excited shrieks.

So, how much? How much would you like to spend at Spotlight?

Uh, let's be realistic..!

How about a $50 Spotlight voucher?



All you have to do is be a 'liker' of the Whimsy Farm Twine Facebook page, and answer this question for me. If I were to introduce a blue, white and red twine - what would YOU call it?

Blue, white and red - often thought of as airmail colours. I, however, think of them as Australian colours! And so I'd like this twine to have an Australian name.

How about... Kylie?



Write your suggestions below to go into the running to win a $50 Spotlight voucher. Make sure you use your name and not "Anonymous" as I need to know the winner's name!

The winner will be drawn at random on Monday, the 10th of September 2012, at 7pm AEST. 

This contest is only open to Australian and New Zealand residents - sorry!

Good luck,
Angie. xx
