What's the oddest thing you've taken into a store to match a color, design or shape?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

I just came back from a DIY craft store and removed the graham cracker I had in my purse - for a color comparison.  I want to crush the crackers for beach sand and the cake stand needs to match -  for a cohesive look.  A light bulb came on in my head as I wondered what odd items other decorators have brought into stores for the same purpose - my second thought is that this may be even bigger than the What Not To Ask a Baker thread.

A cracker? Hahaha. Don't think I've ever done this but will be taking my packet of sugar paste to town on Friday to colour match some ribbon!

 

Did it match your cracker?

A client's bra. She's a friend so it wasn't awkward to receive, just strange to whip out in the middle of the ribbons sections at my craft store... But after I got the matching ribbon color I was fine for the rest of the process!

I have done this, but it was my jeans, and I just wore them! I had Cuppadeecakes' brother make me a cake stand, that I wanted to match my buttercream, so I took a cupcake to Home Depot, for the paint. Their lighting is better :-)

It wasn't for a cake but I once brought a brick to Home Depot to get matching paint for my front door.

I think the bottom of the purse is one of the dirties things known to man, besides for port o potties, so it was probably still cleaner inside than out :-)

 

I Breast fed all mine, and their poop din't stink, literally, until solid food, so maybe they didn't have the smell to contend with? Hopefully?

 

I swear, I would change my daughter's diaper, and I would get this artificial vanilla smell through out the house, and my youngest son smelled like microwave butter flavor popcorn. I don't remember being that lucky with my oldest two, the twins.
