Beautiful ribbons and beautiful display...I plan to be down in St. Louis within the next month, can't wait to visit your shop!

I love those yummy ribbons, but I especially love the spools the ribbon is on. What a cool idea for displaying those old wooden thread spools some of us still happen to have in our sewing baskets! You gals are so imaginative!

Oh, you two are so clever! Who would have thought...to decorate your empty spools with your so lovely died ribbons. Springy into Summer colors that are gorgeous too! I love getting your weekly email and drooling over all the new stamps! I especially love your birds, butterflies and eggs this time of year!
