So Many Ribbons...What's A Girl To Do?!

They’re shiny, they’re silky, and they’re like chiffon on a lemon pie. I cannot imagine my life without RIBBONS!! As a seamstress, crafter and florist I have a fond affection for ribbons ~ over the years my collection has gotten out of control. And there never seems to be a place for all of them. They’re constantly rolling around, falling off things and unraveling all over the floor. Not that the cats mind…ooooh, look a new toy!! I decided to do something to corral all those out of control ribbons. Here is what I came up with! (I did, however, manage to convince myself to donate some of my collection to the local thrift store)

"Call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall honor and glorify Me". Ps. 50:15

Have a blessed week! Victoria Lynn

OK, this is one of my favorite things you have ever made!!! OK, except for the pillows, quilts, mini blankets, dresses, skirts, coats, curtains...Well, one of my favorite WOOD things then!!! Anyhoo, it is amazing, I also love your shabby chic curtains, they look great with the paint color! Aren't you so happy that you did not have to paint that room??
Everything looks great in that end, now you need to take more pictures as things get finished up!



Hi Victoria Lynn,
Very nice ribbon holder..you make more and sell them :) You are one talented woman. It was also fun to get a little peak of your craft room :) You have a great week also.
Please come visit, sometime :)
Warmly, Deb

Thanks for leaving me your sweet comments and about the dresser, it has been raining here everyday I think since I brought it home so no painting yet ): .

Very creative! You did a wonderful job on this. The ribbons are so colorful that this really ends up looking like another decoration in the room! Beautiful!
