What a fun stash! The goat made me smile....love his little beard!

Happy 1st day of summer!


Wow, I feel truly educated on the subject of pipe cleaners! Thanks.
Actually, they bring back fond memories of my Dad cleaning his pipe with them. The little animals are great.
Thanks for a great Tuesday show and tell.


I only hope I have enough to craft one of those delightful steering-wheel covers - comfort AND style!


The colors are gorgeous. Packaging is a bonus. You are a lucky lady to have found so many. Just glad you share with all of us. Beautiful! Smiles..Renee


My dad also used those short, plain white ones to clean his pipes. Every once in a while if I thought it would go unnoticed, I'd slip one away to play with...we weren't to waste things you know!


Pipe cleaners are just neat looking and I do buy the old ones when I run into them - even though I don't actually make anything out of them - LOL! I think Laurie buys them so they must be cool so I have to buy them too. Please don't show your collection of refrigerators!

Laurie - I love your pipe cleaners too ! I also love the boxes and the instruction booklets .... a pipe cleaner steering wheel !? Wow ! How funny is that !?


Laurie I don't think I've ever seen so many pipe cleaners how fun ! E in TN



What a fun AND informative post. I have always been drawn to them, not sure why, I think they remind me of childhood art projects. Plus they are just darn fun to play with! Thanks for that post, I really enjoyed it!
