Well, its approaching that time of the year, my favourite festival, midwinter and Christmas, as the days grow steadily shorter and darker as the end of the year approaches. What better way to prepare than to start sorting out shiny, lustrous vintage French ribbons and trims ready for tying presents and parcels and adding extra glimmer & gleam to festive decorations or projects. I bought most of these beautiful items a while ago from a chap who had bought up the stock of a French ribbon-making factory and a manufacturer of metal embroidery threads and braids from Lyon, both of which had closed down. I tend to hoard it all, a bit like a dragon, sitting on top of my heap of treasure, but now, the time is right to start to put it to good use!
