Today I spent the morning shopping for ribbon. One of my favorite things to do in the world. There are many annoying things about NYC (noise and garbage to name two) as well as many great things. One of the greatest is knowing that if you are looking for some perfect black button or an antique gold coin, or birch logs sliced exactly 2.5" in height or French silk ribbon in the perfect shade of blue there is most likely some person, some funky character living and working among you who has that very thing you seek. Sometimes it's easier to hit the streets than the internet for your wants. Sadly as the big box stores move in and the city turns over to tourists only I fear these quirky place will vanish. It's already happening. One day, I promise to do a whole series on these NYC gems.
More bouquets for you. Enjoy the last day of summer. It's going out in a bang here.
