Hi Blog hoppers of What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday! Today I will mostly be sorting out Ribbons....lots of Ribbons, not just what you see here....I have bags & bags & bags of them. Just plain old chucked in, not sorted or anything! So today is the day they start to get sorted out.
Have a few ideas of what I am going to do for a storage idea, most of my ribbon is bought in lengths from a local market. They have loads of choice and nearly ever week I visit the stall I end up with at least 3 or 4 different styles of of few meters of each. I only buy reels of ribbons if that's all I can get in what I want, which is not often. The latest ones are those organza rose ribbons that are pretty, however they cost £2.50 a meter, bit pricey but couldn't resist!
The bag of vintage lace was purchased in France last October while I was visiting Carccassone. I got the bag for 10Euro after a bit of a haggle with a very abrupt & slightly drunk Frenchman, it was after all 2pm and the entire population of France, including me at the time had just come back form a 2hour lunch that had been all washed down with the obligatory 1 litre of wine! Hence my gusto to haggle, anyway I got it down from 17 Euro, which I thought was quite good! I need to sort it out and wrap it around some card & store it well, there is some really old pretty pieces in it.
Thanks to everyone who visited me me last week on my first week back after short blog sabbatical. I had some lovely comments that really lifted me :) lovely!
Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their day & thanks for stopping by!
