"Yeah, Baby, It's More Ribbon!"

Ribbon.

The word makes my hear skip a beat. Ribbon is one of those deliciously girly things that I adore. It can go anywhere and can dress up absolutely anything.

In a previous lifetime (BC=before children) I was a floral designer in a craft and home d├ęcor store. During my time there, I developed a belief that “there is no such thing as ugly ribbon…just ribbon that hasn’t found its proper calling yet”.

So, given this pre-existing condition, you can understand my delight when I ran across a thread on 2Peas that mentioned the Really Reasonable Ribbon Club. (2Peas…the ultimate enabler!)

For the beautifully low price of $5.50 plus $1.50 for postage and handling, I can enjoy the magic of 10 to 20 yards of assorted ribbons arriving in my mailbox every single month. How awesome is that?!! Each month has a different theme.



May was a selection of summer brights seen above.

It included a total of about 15 yards from manufactureres such as Offray and May Arts.
Organza, grosgrain, awning strip, varigated, checks, and patterned.
Lovely!

In the ever-so-straight-to-the-point words of Tim McGraw, “I like it. I love it. I want some more of it!”
