I especially love the Speed-Cro-Sheen label, super design - whoosh! Sadly, Coats & Clark doesn't make this stuff anymore.
Perhaps a giant ball of string?

This image is from Country Living's "How to get the look" about Marcia Nelson's home. She only incorporates items into her home that are white, brown, black, and silver. EVERYTHING. I admire her dedication, but I don't think I have the stamina to stick to such a narrow palette. She has a really interesting collection of stuff - you should check it out!
