My Friday Find for this week is a roll of rustic cotton “ribbon”.
I was browsing around my favourite country store (shouldn’t have been there…) and spied it almost right away. It stirred something in me. Visions of days gone by flooded my mind. The crafty urge that lurks just below the surface of my being became overwhelming and I convinced myself that I would definitely be able to use it on something, someday. Isn’t it beautiful? Dreamy.
The first thing I did when I got home was rummage around in my (mountains) of scrapbooking supplies that are taking up way too much space in my basement. I looked for papers with similar colours and for some reason, envelopes and tags came to mind. I think because they are easy to make, and at least it would get me going.
This then led me to my next project… a flower press. I used to have one, but alas, it made it’s way to Goodwill during one of my purging episodes. (More on that next week).
So what about the ribbon? Have I used it? Most definitely.

What a fantastic find Barb! I could just run my fingers through that ribbon and I’d love to see what you created with it!
Oh, that ribbon is gorgeous. I’m not surprised it caught your eye. Love your images, so lovely. Happy Friday. :)
Love the rustic look. Such great photos you took. I go through those purging stages now and again as well. Always hoping I don’t get rid of something that I will use again.
Love those frayed edges! I used to be a purger. I never had trouble throwing things away unless it was a family heirloom. But I got rid of a bunch of linens and lace at the “last” garage sale 8 years ago and now regret at least one awesome pillow case I sold. :(
inspiration on a spool. :)
I can see why you had to bring that ribbon home! It’s divine.
