I was going to post flowers today but then as I was uploading them I saw the mailman walking up to my door with this.

We shipped packages to ourselves from almost every country we visited during our travels. This package was lost in the mail for a few months and I thought I would never see its contents again. (Calling just about every post office in Jordan to try and locate a package is something I never want to do again). But alas, it is here! We shipped it in a box, and it arrived in a bag. It makes me wonder what its life has been like for the past few months. These spools of ribbon and trim are just some of the fun things that finally made their way back to me.

Tying a floral bouquet with patterned ribbon is an art, one that I am anxious to experiment with. You have to find the right pattern that compliments the flowers instead of distracting from them. Most of these pictures are more subdued tones, but I have a lot of bright ones to try out this summer, and I can't wait.


  1. I am glad these beauties didn't get lost in the mail! Can't wait to see what you do with them.

  2. I love these! I too can't wait to see what you do with them!
