Ribbon and Fabric and Shells.... Oh My!

The first pictures are of all the pretty ribbon I got from one of my favorite stores in Cambria, California. Cambria is a little beach town that I have been to several times for women's retreat for church. There are awesome memories for me there. Well during one of my retreats I stumbled across this little store owned by a retired couple. It has vintage everything! Postcards, ephemera, glass, gadgets, and French and specialty ribbon! The first picture shows some of the scrap ribbon packs she sells for a dollar! Oh My Gosh! and some other ribbons I picked out. I try to get things I don't see around here when I go.

This next picture shows more of my ribbon. Pink and brown, turquoise and brown, pink with "Mon Amie" on it, lavender striped, fleur di lis in pink and black and an old vintage lace card with two kinds of vintage ribbon on it!

The next two pictures are of fabric scraps we got in Arroyo Grande. These were $5.00per bag. We got two bags. The fabric is high quality apolstery and brocade fabrics...

THese next pictures are of some more awesome fabrics we got in Morro Bay. A place called "The Cotton Ball". I have been going there for years! I always shop the remnants baskets. They have a huge selection! We just love it.

These are all the shells we got at Morro Bay. They are so cool. I am gonna embellish some of them and the rest are going in my new bathroom.

And last, but not least...while we were in San Luis Obispo shopping (of course) I went to another favorite store called Paper Sky. I got these cute little envies and ribbon. The bird nest came from Cambria.

Well, I can't wait to use some of my new goodies. I am gonna make some ribbon flowers and fabric flowers too. So stay cool, God Bless, and create something fun! Becs

Many thanks for your great Giveaway package.
The contents are so nice.
I have been glad very much and also have reported in a post about that.

I hope, it goes well to you!
The "delay" of the Giveaway is not bad.

Lots of love!

OhhLaLa - Nice stuff Becs. What is the name of the shop in Cambria? I will be in California the end of this month with my hubby dropping off our daughter at Biola University. Then we are driving home to Seattle. Would love to drop into the shop. Thanks for the pictures.
