Yeah, you read that title right. Because instead of doing stuff I “should” be doing, I’m writing an ode to rick rack. But I hate “shoulds,” so I’m gonna’ go ahead and do what I feel like doing.
Oh rick rack, how I love thee. Let me count the ways.
One: as decoration on a vintage skirt.
Dos: boldly outlining a sweet game on a sweet pillow.
Trois: On a retro mod Christmas stocking.
Si: Complementing a super fun bird collage.
Cinque: As flower hair clips.
Alti: In big, beautiful, ginormous rolls.
Sete: On a lamp.
åtte: In jewelry design.
Noua: Detailing cute napkins.
Deg: As a means of expressing love.
And if you know any of the languages I’ve substituted for English in my counting, my hat is off to you! I had to look up all but three numbers here.
