Confessions from the Heart of a Ribbon Addict


I love Ribbon! I love it for the beauty that it helps to create. I love it for the feel and texture.



I love ribbon when it’s old and when it’s new.



I love ribbon when it is made from the finest of velvet to the most inexpensive nylon.



There is no differentiating for me, ribbon is ribbon.

Tumbling around in my minds eye in glorious colors.

Sweet, Sensual, Scrumptious, Irresistible Ribbon!

Oh Nancy,
Ribbon is my big weakness too. I really think I have an addiction but...there are worst addictions around, I'm sure. As pink is my favourite colour, this post hasn't helped to curb it one little bit :>)
Like little cheeky children they tumbled about then suddenly sat there looking as good as gold...haha!
Hugs, Angela

I adore ribbon--especially Grosgrain (I've always loved the name). Great pictures--the texture of that velvet ribbon just leaps of the page! Ribbon makes everything more special--what would we do without it?

Oh me too!! Ribbon is so much fun to play with ... I collect scraps of it too because that little piece might be exactly the colour I need to finish a piece I'm working on! ~ Lynda xo

Love all the ribbon ~~~ light pink, dark pink, stripes and luxuriously soft velvet, swirls and swirls of it ~~~

I've got a clear bottle full which I just love in pale hues, a work of art just on its own.

Nancy, I think a ribbon addiction is a safe addiction -- you could have chosen something much more harmful to your health -- this is a "good" one!! :)

Janet said...

All your pink ribbons are beautiful, scrumptious, and very feminine. I think it must be a good addiction.

I am with you 100% about the ribbon. I have ribbon all over the house in boxes and cupboards and I buy it all the time. I simply could not live without ribbon.

I agree. Delicious! I am starting to love ribbon more and more. I also love that hand painted stationary, and the wonderful treasures under glass!
