A few Bows for costumes...

This bow is for a little pumpkin. The mom wanted to add some pink just to be a little different. I really like the ric rac and sequin strand hanging down from the bow. 


This one is for a little mermaid costume,  I like how we added the feathers to the bow and gave it a lot of dimension.

Texture!

I love this time of year, when one uses more texture in their projects, etc. The velvets are a beautiful addition to wreaths, sewing, hair, etc. We have such a large selection of high quality velvets, they are absolutely beautiful!!!
I love our leaf ribbon we have in suede...russian netting, burlap, silk,  all these things add TEXTURE to everything you do. Why texture is so important is that it makes things look rich and luxurious....it adds depth and interest and also adds a personal touch.

Pictures will follow next week...I have my camera full from pictures at The Greek Festival this weekend...it was my daughters first year of dancing in the GOYA group...hence...I need to empty my camera. I will do the photos next week :)

Ring Pillows Made with Midori and Lady Chiffon Ribbon

Erin Bowers is a mother of a bride that came in to the store. She wanted something special for the ring pillows in her daughters wedding.  We came up with the idea of making a large rosette out of our beautiful ribbon on a small pillow. I made the large Rosettes and Erin made the pillow. I was so thankful to her for bringing the pillows back in to see the finished product. They turned out beautiful!  Thank you Erin!

Ribbon Rosettes

You know those cute rosettes that everyone is making now out of fabric?
Have you thought about using ribbon instead of fabric??
Look at what is hot right now in our store!
 These are so fun to make! You can really get creative with the variety of ribbons and feathers we have!
 Some of these are just new flowers in the store. They have a pin back and a clip on the back!


 These are made from Midori Esprit ribbon
 This one is a silk ribbon.



 Dupioni silk, really do make the best flowers I have found. They give a great texture to each rosette.

The Lace Place... your ribbon boutique: Wishing you all a very Happy Mother's Day!!

The Lace Place... your ribbon boutique: Wishing you all a very Happy Mother's Day!!

Wishing you all a very Happy Mother's Day!!

This is for all of you who I come in contact with on a daily basis.  Women of all backgrounds and walks of life, Brides, Young Moms, Not yet Moms, Grandmothers and everyone else.
I get inspired by you all everyday. I love seeing the projects you do and often tell myself how amazed I am at the business of your lives with children, etc, but yet you have the time and energy to focus on the details of your lives and projects and decorate it with ribbon!
I love the conversations we have and getting to know what is going on in your lives. I am always reassured, in spite of the awfulness of of what is going on in the world, that we are lucky to be living in a healthy vibrant community. I am touched by my customers, who come in here talking about the help they do for others. Decorating with yellow ribbons because someone they know is coming home, staying up at Primary Children's Hospital tending to a sick child and feel the need to keep busy with your hands and making things out of ribbons, usually for other sick patients. I know a lot of what you do extends far beyond this modest ribbon store. I am just thankful to be a small part of each and everyone of your lives.  I wish you all the best Mother's Day, spending time with your families and cherishing every moment, because it isn't really about that one day that is special, having a mom makes EVERYDAY special:)

This is one of my favorite poems, I am sure you have read it before, but I would like to share anyway.



Audrey Hepburn's Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived,  reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.
Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the  figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!
