I am a pretty lucky lady; because I'm sitting on a box of vintage velvet ribbon. I recently was perusing the February Martha and found that stunning article on jewelry boxes. Do you feel embarrassed when you find yourself drooling over a Martha Stewart magazine? Are you ashamed that you read it three times and consider what you would do if asked to be the celebrity guest on the television show? Don't answer that...


So anyway this jewelbox article made my heart flutter. Antique diamonds and velvet ribbon! Orange, coral and turquoise...I'm thrilled looking at each page of this. The stylists she has are incredible. Really the best. Kudos ladies, because I have this box of ribbon and I can't figure out what to do with it. I'm stunted. I look at it and my mind goes blank. It's been sitting in the shop for days.

Finally I started tying bouquets with it for clients - not the ideal usage, but you have something this special, why not share it right? So if you have some plain boxes lying around begging for adornment and you're feeling crafty, stop by and I'll cut you a yard of it. Maybe you can inspire me...

In other news we are heading upstate this morning to seal the deal on the biggest soap order ever. This is the homestretch - when we return tonight I'm not wrapping another bar of soap for three days. That's right, I said it! With all the email problems I've encountered in the past few days finally FIXED (we ended up just putting in a different SMTP address for outgoing mail, it worked, and I hung up the phone on the TimeWarner hold-line), I really need to settle in over the next few days and catch up, let alone do some planning for Valentines day.

And finally, last night friends, I watched This is Spinal Tap, for...ehemmm...the first time ever. Black, always a good choice.

Great blog! I love your photos and wish I could just trot down to your little shop to purchase flowers and soap. I'll have to be content with shopping online for now. I would love to include a picture of your Saltwater soap and a link to your on-line shop and blog in an upcoming post on my blog. Would that be okay?
