SPRING HAS SPRUNG, here at the Ribbon Store - heading to eBay today, as well as upcoming shows (The Old West Antiques Show, and Art Unravelled), hand dyed, hand pleated, Habotai silk brooches - my version of the always loved Peony.  4.5" in diameter, with a magnetic backing - the PERFECT springtime accessory!  I also carry the silk pieces in the store, for your own creative endeavors - peonies or otherwise.
New, embossed velvet ribbons in rich, FUN colors.
Beautiful, German-made, high quality viscose/rayon floral embroidered net laces - laying on a bed of hand-dyed silk velvet fabrics.  ALL available in the store - don't see what you want?  Just ask!
Always something vintage thrown into the mix - for your favorite hairdresser and/or stylist collector...Pomp"Adorable"!
Which brings us to the cupcakes - and, we weren't kidding!  Luscious, mouthwatering creations that are easy on the hips!  "Have your cake and don't sweat it, too!"...or something like that.

All the ribbon, fit to sell, right here at
the Ribbon Store...
Happy Creative Tuesday - Carole

FABULOUS fun, coming soon!  Weaving our way through updating the blog to bring you news, and new items.  Having a bit of a problem with the "new and improved" Blogger having retired the old "Followers" option in March - we'd like to offer the option, not for popularity reasons, but as a way for us to make it easier on you to find us again.  Alas, we're at an impasse with "The Man".

We ask, for the time being (and only if you want to keep up with happenings here at the Ribbon Store), that you physically copy and ADD our URL (www.theribbonstore.blogspot.com) to your Reading List, IF you find the Followers option on the sidebar blank - the Add button is directly below the Reading List heading on your Dashboard.  Or, drop your email in the box on the sidebar for emailed notifications of updates.  
Luscious cupcakes and petit fours - perfect as pincushions, or "just because", and the calories won't end up on your hips...
New textures and colorful surprises at every turn...
Brighten your days now that winter is waning - SPRING into some color! 
Heads a spinnin', here at the Ribbon Store - the "fabulousness" is almost more than we can stand!
UPCOMING SHOW INFORMATION:  For those of you in the Reno/Tahoe and Sacramento areas, I will be at the OLD WEST ANTIQUES SHOW, May 10th and 11th (treat yourself, or that special Mom in your life - Mother's Day is May 12th)!

As always, you can find me on eBay, under the seller name RIBBONSTORE, or feel free to contact me via email (check the side bar).  Stick with us as we continue to give the blog a new look and add more eye candy on a timely basis - in the meantime, hope your weekend is colorful and safe!
