Velvet Ribbons

I love it that the holidays are coming and we can wallow in the moments of joy.

I searched all over my Medieval city for velvet ribbon, I got it in my head that I must find velvet ribbon.  I did finally find bright red and rich earth brown in the sewing store.

This way we can wrap up things in velvet ribbon and it instantly becomes a little present.

I made homemade pain au chocolat, butter and dark chocolate stuffed in yeast bread with a little sugar. Yum, then wrapped them up in aluminum foil and a velvet ribbon for school or a work snack.

I like the ribbon used as fastening for a love note.

Hot chocolate, brown velvet ribbon and a hot pink azalea,  The holidays are here!

Doesn't velvet ribbon just start up the holiday season with a touch of festa?

  1. Your last two photos are simple...perfect.

    I love the brown actually. It rich and decadent and unexpected. Do you have a little Thanksgiving celebration in Italy?
