I love staring at the colors. The shop is on vacation right now, but in the mean time, read Verabel’s story.
The closing quote is awesome, and just what I needed for the new year:

beautiful thick twine & Italian cotton ribbons!

I’m a lover of beautiful twine and ribbons. they really add a special touch to any packaging. Many people have asked where I got the twine used for our wedding invitations as those were particularly thick. I’ve searched high and low and the best source I’ve found is Angela Liguori’s shop. She ships worldwide and also carries a collection of beautiful Italian cotton ribbons! if you act quick, there’s a giveaway for twine/ribbons/stationary!
