It’s the Fourth of July…by Terry

working in the store, daydreaming about the cupcakes I’m going to eat tonight. This wonderful young woman came in with her daughter from Seattle and said, “I read your blog all the time, I just love it and the pictures!!”.  I said “My blog??” like a goof. I was so thrilled to hear that, it’s like the sun rose over the sky. It’s so wonderful when someone takes the time to compliment you for something you are doing. I was overwhelmed and thrilled. I know blogging is the thing now, but you really never know if anyone is really looking at them! So thank you thank you, thank you, pretty woman and daughter from Seattle, you made my day!!
Happy Holidays to everyone,

It’s time for the gift wrap to come out…

and all those rolls and rolls of beautiful ribbon you have been saving for months. It’s holiday time! Let’s get the holidays started!!! I love getting beautiful packages and I love the wrapping almost as much as the present. There is something so wonderful about double sided satin ribbon, the way it just hangs over a present looking elegant and full of richness. The taffeta ribbon which always stays in place so well. Dupioni silk is also one of my favorites, grosgrain as well.. I love them all… really… Here are a few ideas for you. Take your time wrapping, get a nice glass of wine or a hot cup of tea. Lay everything out on the table you need, turn on some great music and just enjoy it and the when your done, be satisfied and happy that you make the most beautiful gift, and you took the time to do it. Bravo to you.
