Wonderful Ribbons......


I want to share with you this fabulous lady....Mattiecakes on Etsy, ribbons like I have never seen before, looking all old and vintagey, or stamped with fabulous illustrations..... lots of styles and in the most fabulous array of colours, all wrapped onto beautiful aged stamped tags that are a work of art in their own right.I have been buying these for a little while and using them on gifts and even to sew with ha ha....and I thought the time had come to not be selfish and keep Mattiecakes to myself ....but share her with you.
Can you share something nice with me, that would be fun xxxx

These are really beautiful, i must pop by and have a look, they would look lovely around presents and sewn onto bags and purses! I can see why you wanted to keep them a secret.
I love http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5064563
She does the most beautiful and imaginary photo's ive seen, i could buy her whole shop.
Take care

Hey we shall have no talk about people feeling bad :) My feelings about my tiredness in blogging are really not comment related at all, I really would enjoy my blog whether I have 1 comment or 100 comments. Also as so many people have helped me understand, blogging should be a pleasure, and if I get a lovely, sweet comment or two then I guess that is the icing on the cake. Personally I think there is too much focus on this comment malarkey ;)

I comment on blogs now because I want to, not because I feel I have to.

Hugs

Again another wonderful post. Her ribbons looks so good with the added touch of the decorated tags. Thanks for sharing her with us. I was trying to come up with someone that I love...which there are so many. F.G & co. is one of my favorite paper artist. The designs come from old cards that she's collected for years. You can buy them from varies shops through out the US. Her website is charming with the cutest music playing. It's worth checking out.
www.fgandco.com I believe is the correct address

Have a great day!
Carole

Hello Lynn!

I so hope you are feeling better now! Do you need the medicines for the rest of your life or is it a temporary solution? You need to rest and take it easy my friend..
Thank you for your words and support, I really appreciate it. I´ve been thinking a lot of what I want to do and what I should do...I´m still a bit paralyzed regarding everything, guess it will take some time to land properly. We did get some sad news on Monday morning..my father-in-law past away. Now I really think it is enough with sad news for a while.
Beautiful ribbons and thank you for sharing!
Have a lovely day Lynn!
Thinking of you...

Hugs Anne
