Two treasuries!

My Gladraggz shop was in two treasuries the last few days! First I'd like to thank blythehopesvintage for including my silk ribbon embroidery bag in her gorgeous Etsy treasury, which now appears to have become "Tuesday Trends" You can see it here:

Ribbon Embroidery Treasury:

This silk bag seems to be a favorite, and has a lot of hearts. For those of you who are among its admirers, please note that it comes with a free quilted storage bag.

Although my bag isn't true ribbon embroidery, it has the appearance of this fine neede art. Ribbon embroidery tradtionally is done with fine silk ribbon, because no other material dyes so well or achieves the fine drape that silk does. Stitching with silk creates the feminine and elegant look, and as far as I know, it's impossible to achieve the look of ribbon embroidery by machine. Whenever you see it, you know that someone has worked long and hard for that little bit of Heaven!

Please stop by the blythehopesvintage Etsy shop. Although it's primarily stocked with vintage clothing, there are few pretty pieces of lace and ribbon (embroidery). Here's an example:

I also want to thank the graceraecreations Etsy shop for featuring my newest "Watermelon" purse, (featured in my previous blog post). You can see the treasury here:

Hot Pink and Lime Green:

Please stop by her shop to see an adorable collection of head and hair accessories:

Here's a sneak peak of what you'll find:

Also, stop by my shops if you have a chance - I have some new items, and they are very affordable! I'll be sharing more about them soon.

For now, have a good day, everyone!
