Jars of Sparkles...

In my studio, I love to store those special ribbons, trims, and pretty little things in canning jars...
They all sit on a shelf in neat rows. All are visible at any time so I when need that special touch for one of my projects they are in easy reach...

What are some of these special treasures that these jars hold?
Let's take a close up look... It is nice to pull out these wonders and share them with you!

thin ribbons

Stamens- new and vintage...

wools for embroidery

Silk bias ribbons

Yes, it has taken me years of "collecting". For many years following I hoarded these beloved ribbons, flowers, and trims. Life can pass by quickly and the originally when  purchased these items it was to use them......I am finding that I am now bringing these precious pieces out and using them, so now all can delight in them and can in their being so special!
