'Sea Glass' Vintage French Ribbon



Picked up some beautiful vintage French Ribbon in my travels this weekend and the color and swirly patterns are so current!  ~from beachy to bohemian ~


The turquoise feels like summer to me and plays well with my beach bottle collection.



These would be great for trimming curtains ~

 Or for wrapping a special gift with ~



What would you do with a roll of this beautiful French Ribbon?

Wow...I use that color in my house too. I would probably just unroll it a little and have it out on a silver tray.

Oh my, this ribbon is GORGEOUS! It almost looks too good to use, pretty on display just as is. But I'm sure you can find many uses for it, especially tied in with a beachy gift at summertime.
I just received my copy of JDL today from you, and posted about my excitement on my blog. Couldn't contain myself. Thank you Roberta!!!

The first picture reminds me of my wedding cake - the perfect shade of aqamarine, tiered of course, with white accents and a huge hydrangea bloom. Courtesy of You :) Thanks again.

I wanted to let you know that your FEB mantel is not showing up, even though the link is there.

I would display that ribbon just how you have it. It's just beautiful and makes such a statement stacked like that. The colour is gorgeous especially with your greeny blue bottle. Leahxx

Adore this ribbon! I would use it as an accent on the outside of my small wooden drawers that I keep in my studio. I would also stretch some over a linen or burlap canvas to make a memo board. The color is wonderful!

I think the stacks of the rolls together is just perfect. Nothing else needs to be done. Love the colour,

I would use all to trim out a set of crisp sheets and pillow cases.-ginger
