Rockin Robin Wins!!!

Rockin Robin from guessed correctly for the Guess that Item contest. She commented. "A paper roller?? Whatever it is, it awesome! What a great find!" Give me a couple of days to put together a fun treasure for her and I'll be sure to share it with all of you later! Congratulations Rockin Robin!!!!! For the rest of you that took a guess - thanks for playing along!

When I bought my "newspaper log roller" for $2 just a few streets over, the woman told me that was precisely what it was. Go here to see how they're are actually used and notice that they run about $50 these days.

Since I first shared my newspaper log roller, I have learned a few additional things about it. My initial dream for it was to use it as a paper towel holder - I was dead set that it had to be that! I took my half roll of paper towels from the kitchen and slid them on and perfecto - BEAUTY! Then I ran out of towels and tried to replace the roll and "oh dear" that were too fat to roll (the paper towels that is!). I was devastated. I decided to suck it up and go to plan B - ribbon holder. Looks cute and keeps the ribbons accessible. But I use a lot of ribbon and every time a roll runs out I have to take them ALL off and remove and replace the empty roll. Oh my - what a pain in the butt! So now I need to ask you for some new suggestions/uses for my paper roller. Got any?

I think using it for ribbon is just lovely. I bet it is a pain in the butt to change, just don't run out of ribbon lol

So cute.
My aunt had one in her old grocery store and used it with paper to wrap meat. Her's was not as nice as this one.
