When Emily showed me her Rick Rack Cactus, I was smitten. I had no idea there was such as thing. So she took a couple of clippings from her plant and gave them to me. I gave her a clipping of my Peperomia Hope in exchange. (I only know its name because Emily told me).
If it is possible to have a thing for fabric trim, I have a thing for Rick Rack. My mother used to sew it the clothes she made me when I was a kid. I especially remember it trimming the pockets of red and white smock she made me. It was one of my favorite shirts when I was in Kindergarten.
I have a whole box of Rick Rack that people have sent me over the years. I haven’t figured out how to use it yet, but I believe one day it will be just what I need. So I keep my box of Rick Rack tucked away. Some of it dates back to the 1930’s so it’s been waiting for some time to make its way into the world.
I guess it can wait a little longer.
