Straight round to Barlow and Fields, the best and tastiest coffee shop in Leigh and I waited till my mate Deborah arrived and then we had the grand opening... and boy, was it worth the wait!
This is what I found inside... Aren't they just lush?
Seriously, tell me that polka dots will never be passé... these are just stunning... am already thinking Father Christmas's braces with the red and white dots on a garland.
And these wired organza ribbons... roses, at the very least.
Now what about this pack... manly ribbons, look really manly ribbons... don't they remind you of striped blazers... actually I think I can hear strains of the Eton Boating song...
Cripes these ribbons have deck stitching and look in the corner, gingham... why, oh, why did I ever cut my hair? (Possibly cos someone in their 50s would look silly in plaits?)
I love this group, the deck chair trio, and boy if you could see how the lime green is made to really zing with the pink deck stitching... have you any idea how much my fingers are itching?
My head is just whirling with ideas to start working with the ribbons... although my first issue is storage but I think I have found a solution and when it arrives, I will show you.
Now, I must get going, I have a tutorial to write in my official capacity as a Jane Means Ribbon Stylist... If you have anything that you think I should take a crack at please let me know...
And finally... for those who have not heard it, here are the wet bobs of Eton, with the Eton Boating Song... blazers at the ready chaps, floaty dresses for the ladies and off we go.
