Ooh Pretties!




Last half term we took a trip down to London to visit a few of our fave. shops............layouts to follow.
While we were there I wanted to track down a haberdashery shop, VV Rouleaux that's been talked about recently in various mags (SI) and fashion TV programmes (Gok)..... I luv Gok! Anyhow it was one of the first warmest days this year, the tube was packed and my new sandals were giving me gip! But we eventually found it tucked away..........Ooh it's lovely. The only thing is that I have a habit that when i have too many choices and a small budget I end up not buying anything. In the end I just chose a few metres of ribbon that I knew would match some recently purchased papers and a feather butterfly. Some of the heaver braids and more fancier lace are pretty pricey but good to browse through. What i liked the most was that the butterfly they wrapped up in an inflated plastic bag so it looked like one of those fish you win at the fair! (I know your thinking how sad, but I thought it was cute). So I will leave you to coo over my purchases while I get going with some scrapping using those scrumptious ribbons and butterfly.
