Goodness knows I can easily find negatives
about living where I do,
being a country, four seasons kind of gal.
But there is goodness here.
And luscious, delectable, mouth dropping
beauty to be found in unexpected places.
Imagine being able to open your
mailbox once a month to a package
such as this...
Or purchase art creations like these pincushions.
I had heard of the "Ribbon Lady"
for many years and various
friends had offered to take me there
and introduce us, but the timing was always off,
and the "meeting" eluded me. A month ago I finally
succeeded in meeting Carole Sidlow,
and today I spent even more time at her amazing home.
I would show home pictures but I cannot. I was there to take pre-view pics for a wonderful stylist considering Carole's home for publications.
Once they are published, I will link you for sure :D
Carole's ribbon store is located in her
over sized studio behind her home.
There isn't a ribbon she does not carry
or in person by appointment only.
You CA gals who visit here on weekends,
be sure and bookmark this info!
Even better, everyone can join her
This is not like other clubs. Carole and her dear friend Laura personalize each kit to your desires, colors, widths, yardage, usage, vintage, new, trims etc...
Not just an identical box that dozens of others receive.
Each one made specifically for you doll makers,
quilters, scrap-bookers, milliners.
Joining the club, also earns you discount from retail.
Stop the drooling, it really is that wonderful!
I cannot yet bring myself to open the packages of hand pleated ribbons I have purchased from her.
They are works of art just as they are.
( be sure and check those out too!)
A small portion of the Ribbon Store
I have an inspirational place to shop,
two wonderful new friends, and the world is good.
So, where have I been?
1.put my design and organizing services on sale,
so clients signing up for the "discount".
2. repaired most of the broken stuff from 2 weeks ago.
3. Held garage sale Saturday to sell off some extras
to raise funds for DD's apt in NYC this fall.
4. Preparing for photo shoot at the end of July,
(too many embarrassing dust bunnies)
(actually dog fur bunnies...dust doogies?)
5. Just enjoying the time with darling daughter.
etc etc etc
Still reading you all, and visiting as I can.
What a summer this is!
Anyone else miss the playlists?
Dang Lowe's for advertising on them.
I miss discovering new songs on your blogs :(
