A haberdashery is like a sweetshop to me- I just adore all the ribbons, colours and trimmings and all the combinations you can come up with together with the colours of fabric - just so extraordinarily exciting !
I once walked past a tiny dark shop in the neighbourhood I used to live in, and it was only because I had to wait for someone else to pass on the narrow pavement, that I stopped and glanced into a shop-window I passed by, and discovered my almost Number 1 favourite shop in the world- an old haberdashery ! It was filled from top to bottom with shelves, drawers and cardboard boxes full of everything you can dream of, whatever thread, button or ribbon you wanted.The young couple who owned it had taken it over from an old lady and had still no idea what was in some of the drawers, as there was so much inventory to check .
So I always have some ribbons and trimmings one way or another lying around, which was just as well when I came accross a very sad little footstool .This was the material- a remnant- I had left over and the trimmings I had.
Here is the "after".
So- are you also a trimmings -and-haberdashery affectionado, and have you any project you'd like to share? Or does all this ribbons and trimmings and haberdashery leave you stony-cold??
I look foward to your comments!!!!
