May Day has passed, and Mother's Day is fast approaching.  Here's hoping there's some SPRING in your step and you're enjoying a bit of wonderful warm weather, wherever it is you may call  home.  Vegas has been windy these past few days, but we've also had some beautiful sunny skies, so no complaints here.  Knee-deep in ribbons and velvets most days - these will be heading with me to the GRASS VALLEY OLD WEST ANTIQUES SHOW next weekend...sweet gift ideas for a beloved Mother, or yourself, just because you deserve it!
Beautiful hand dyed silk velvets, topped with more hand-dyes, in the guise of folded and gathered silks.  Each one uniquely different - no two alike - ALL guaranteed fun!  These have been set atop vintage porcelain egg cups.  I carry all the supplies I use, to help you with your very own crafting/sewing needs.
SO soft!  GORGEOUS, vintage-look, NEW high quality viscose/rayon floral embroidered net lace from Germany.
New stock that looks like the antique!  Gorgeous metallic, woven torchon border laces from Japan, in golds and silvers...
Beautiful, varied designs...don't see what you want, just ask!  I pride myself on carrying the best and most unique in the shop...from doll making to wedding planning needs - no project is too large or small!
Hand-dyed silks, to die for...seriously!  These are like butter in your hands, and the colors are absolutely incredible.  Created locally by a duo of fabulous fiber artist friends...
A basket full of Happy May wishes - may your days be filled with a riot of spring colors, now that the snow has passed (all but for Denver, yesterday)!  Let us help you out with your creative textile needs - drop by the booth next weekend at the GRASS VALLEY SHOW, if you're in the area, and see what's new that you just might not be able to live without.  Can't make the show - visit the eBay store, or drop a line.  A few tutorials coming your way here, in the future...thanks for stopping by!  Stay creative...


  1. Grass Valley show next weekend and I am looking forward to meeting you there. Tanya Greb has told me so much about your beautiful ribbon store in LV. Safe Travels...

  2. Your blog is beautiful!!! And your ribbon!!!! So stunning! I look forward to following along with you here!!! Inspiring!!!

  3. Oh so gorgeous! I love your creations - the velvet really comes through in the pictures and you just want to reach out and pet them - beautiful! I am off to look at the eBay store....

  4. I've died and gone to heaven!!! I was just on Bead and Needle's blog and she had your link. Great girl, isn't she? Anyway, I'm so thankful she sent me your way. I'm here in Chicago and am grateful for at least being able to shop in your store on ebay. And you're probably grateful too because if I lived in Las Vegas you find me camped out in your store 24 hours a day!!!! Hey.. maybe I could exchange rent for keeping the store clean and having a fresh brewed cup of coffee when you come in in the mornings?????? Just a thought!! LOL
