LOVELY THINGS: striped straws & monograms

LOVELY THINGS: striped straws & monograms

Back in December – as I was putting together our bar tray – I was on the lookout for cute bar / kitchen accessories and really wanted striped straws. For some reason those pretty straws were almost impossible to find anywhere in Europe (at an affordable price). But then my search finally led me to Etsy, where I came across the amazing shop “BackToZero” by Lingke. Not only does the shop offer just about any type of straw you could imagine (at only 4$ for a pack of 25!!), but it also sells gorgeous wrapping accessories (which I used for Christmas last year) and cupcake holders, as well as wax seal stamps. I just received my second order from BackToZero last week and wanted to share this Etsy gem with you guys. And since Lingke saw that I blogged about her items before, she was sweet enough to offer my readers a -15% discount code: BIKINISPASSPORT

Happy Shopping 🙂

DIY thank you card

I also ordered a monogrammed “V” wax stamp because I love the idea of sealing letters with it (if I actually wrote letters …) and of course I had to play around with it the second I received it. I came up with the idea of making some D.I.Y. thank you cards and am actually pretty smitten with how the first one turned out.

    Oh thank you Vicky! I was looking around for paper straws for ages but didn´t wanna spend up to 5,50 € for only 12 straws. Now I just added loads to my basket 🙂

    Hey 🙂
    I LOVE THE STAMP!! 😀
    And I found a little shop in Vienna this week and just made a post on it on my blog [lisaaddicted2.blogspot.com] – they sell just the same paper straws and they only cost €4,50 for a pack of 25 🙂 Not as cheap as the ones from etsy but you can get them in Vienna 🙂

    Love, Lisa

    Liebe Vicky,
    wollte dich fragen, welche Erfahrungen du mit Etsy hast? Funktioniert Versand usw. einwandfrei?
    Wie lange dauert es meistens und wie hoch sind die Kosten ungefähr?

    Danke für die Info!

    Lg, Lisa

      Liebe Lisa,

      Etsy ist ja quasi “nur” die Plattform (wie zB Ebay) und es gibt viele verschiedene Seller. Daher kann man das leider so pauschal nicht sagen! Manche sind super schnell, andere nicht so, und Versand kostet auch bei jedem Seller unterschiedlich. Teilweise nur 4$, manchmal aber bis zu 20€ …. Bei Backtozero ist der Versand jedoch relativ günstig (4$ + 1$ für jedes weitere Produkt) und dauert ca. 2-3 Wochen.

      Hoffe das hilft dir 🙂

    When will the 15% discount code: BIKINISPASSPORT expire? I am very interested in designing my own wax seal stamp too!

      Hi Anita,

      I think think the code necessarily has an expiration date. But I will check with the shop owner and let you know 🙂

    As you referred to cupcake holders this fabulous book came into my mind: 130 Gramm Liebe – Cupcakes, die glücklich machen, Renate Gruber . It is photographed beautifully and full of wonderful recipes. Preview at Amazon: http://www.amazon.de/130-Gramm-Liebe-Cupcakes-gl%C3%BCcklich/dp/3850337278

    Cheers, Chael
