Ribbons of Inspiration

I noticed that this month's Victoria magazine has an article on Nicholas Kniel.

I can always count on Victoria to inspire me.

One of my favorite books is called Ribbon, The Art of Adornment by Nicholas Kniel and Timothy Wright.

Inside this gorgeous coffee table book is so much delightful ribbon inspiration.

I am always inspired by ribbons, which leads to fabric designs.

I love the way

the ribbons are displayed in this book,

Those ribbons look as beautiful as bouquets. The shoe clips reminded me that I have an old pair around the house someplace. Must keep my eye out for them. You have a great day, too, Karen. These glorious spring days are made for inspiration.

Good evening precious Karen!

With BLogger out of order for two days, it was so difficult to keep connected with everyone. But it is nice to come back to lovely things of peace, beauty and fun. What a crazy week I have had at school. Education has changed just in the last 8 years that I have been teaching. Have a quiet weekend, Anita

Hope you have a lovely Pink Saturday!!! L, dana
