The Most Gorgeous Double Ruffle Ribbons

A few weeks ago, I ordered a few ribbons. I wanted sooo much more,but I'll order those soon. Most nof the ribbons I ordered are the 7/8" double ruffle ribbons & 3 of the new 7/8" bark ribbons. I couldn't have been happier when I received my package!!

Deb, from Just Because Ribbons,is one of the sweetest gals you will ever work with! I had so many questions and special requests before ordering & she was so patient & nice.

I'm in the process of learning how to sew. Once I saw the ribbons in person,I finally started trying to learn. I "hope" to make pillows w/ the ribbons from Deb. I can just see the pillows in my mind...of couse,they're all gorgeous!!

Even if it takes some time trying to make my pillows,I've decorated vintage spools w/ the ribbons. Everyone loves them! They're so soft.

Be sure to drop by her shop . If you can sew,you'll really be happy with anything & everything that you buy here. If you're like me,just learning to sew,etc.,you'll be so happy with everything. Not only will you be happy w/ the ribbons,you'll be very please w/ her customer service!

I've also ordered some business cards,matching stickers & gift certificates. I'll be bragging on this lady soon! Anyway... I'm going w/ the blue & brown colors. I love the way Deb's ribbons looks w/ my business cards! Thank you so much,Deb at JUST BECAUSE RIBBONS for such a great shopping experience!!! I'll be back again & again! This lady EARNS customer loyalty.

While shopping for vintage treasure in TN,I found this huge pair of vintage curtains. They're lined and are quite heavy. They have a nubby feel to them. In the selvedge,it says "VAT PRINTS",along w/ a little more that I can make out.

I'm "thinking" that they're bark cloth,but I want to be sure. SO...I'm having a contest!! The 1st person that can ID this fabric will receive a $20 gift certificate for my ETSY shop. The certificate is valid for 6 months,so you could use it while Christmas shopping (or buy a gift for yourself~you deserve it!). If holiday shopping,we offer gift wrapping,we'll ship to the giftee w/ a gift tag to let them know it's from you and much more! If you see something in my shop that you want to lay-away,you can use the gift certificate for that,too.

I really want to give this gift certificate away! I hope to hear from you guys soon.

Best wishes & best of luck,


P.S.~ If you love vintage fabric,I have some adorable feed sack fabric w/ gorgeous patterns and in really nice condition & LOTS of damask napkins,hand towels and more that I'll be adding to my shop soon!!
