Our friend, Joanne, has the most delightful little jewel box of a store. She and her sweet mama, Annie, sell yards and yards of the most delicious-looking ribbon!
Joanne hand dyes some of her treasures. She also wraps gorgeous velvet ribbon around vintage spools and sells it that way. I love to buy those and just have them sitting around looking lovely. The pink things you see in the picture above are 'bricks' of tiny stemmed pearls like you see on hats & costumes.
We took ribbon from Joanne and tricked up this old silk shade . I can just image this on a lamp in my Leopard Lounge at home.
Here's some more eye candy in between the rain storms yesterday...
This is our friend, Wendy, who is showing us one of her quilts she created. She bought a tablecloth from us and used it in this quilt. She is now a citizen of Blogistan. You can find her at www.FourSeasonsQuiltShoppe.blogspot.com
WELCOME WENDY! She is extremely talented & we have just about got her booked to come to TEXAS next Spring! Check her out...she's a doll!
Well, I gotta run up to Lakewood and dry off the stuff. It poured in the middle of night and we didn't tarp because THE STUPID WEATHERMAN SAID NO MORE RAIN! LIAR.Toodles....lulu
