Jack and Lulu Candy Stripe Drinking Straws

A really cute new product from one of my favorite stationery producers in the U.S.; Jack and Lulu. I have followed this company since 2003 when I myself ran a greeting card company for a few years. I’ve always loved the simple designs which they apply to a boutique range of stationery items. Simple, yet elegant and timeless. These candy stripe straws remind me of the old waxed ones my mum used to buy back in the late 70′s and early 80′s, which nowadays sadly seem to have disappeared off the grocery aisle shelves. They also reminded me of the one I mocked up about a year ago for a cookie shoot…

Thankfully now I can buy a whole pack of them from Anthropologie, and even better, they now (finally!) ship to Australia :)

    Wonderful composition of the milk and cookies! The straw really adds to the happiness of the photo. I see you are an Anthropologie fan. It’s my wife’s favourite store. I like to go with her and take photos of pretty much everything. I like how they stage their products with the lighting they have in the store.

    Hi Rex, many thanks for your comment.

    Yes, I adore Anthropologie. I only found out last week that they are now shipping to Australia (wooHoo!). I bought a load of their stuff online last December but had to have a friend in Chicago ship it to me. I love the store’s style and it’s a fantastic place to find photo props, esp. for food styling. Every time I am in the U.S. be it in Chicago or NYC, I spend about half a day pottering about their store – my poor husband tries his best for the first 20 minutes to look entertained, then he’ll make a dash to a nearby bar to kill the time… he normally has to come back 2 hours later to tell me to stop spending and drag me away … ;)

    I got mine (and promptly use them too with ice cream sandwich pics – they are so cute!) from bakeitpretty.com – not sure where they ship though beside the US.
