Celebration of Bull Dogs!


I love Bull Dogs!  I am not talking about the canine variety. [I prefer German Shepherds.] 

I mean the shiny, silver stationery clip variety.

I just bought myself another fresh new batch - I use them extensively in my kitchen to seal opened packets of muesli, bayleaves, raisins, cranberries, etc. etc!


I use bulldog clips all over my home - they keep the notices on my notice board, the crochet work on my screen, my pile of  patterns together,.................!

I never knew that is what they are called.
My word, but your shelves are neat!!! (If you have any spare time ... I'll supply the Illy and bull dogs (-:)

I agree. They were especially useful in my college photography studio. I had rows of headless nails on a black wall, on which I hung the students A4 photos using shiny bulldog clips. I could keep things fresh and interesting, by often changing photographs on display. The bulldogs clips worked a treat!

I buy them in bulk! Great for keeping curtains back, too.

That's so strange but I like them as well. Especially the small ones. For me they're right up there with post-its. Okay that my neat-freak coming out there!

They are so handy, but.....I used to work in retail & every time I see them, they remind me of dressing forms & board-folding shirts - yuck!
