glittery Friday

a new order Grenadier and Telephone ribbons arrived today
so the telephone ribbon is now available again

 the lovely bag with London bus and Telephone ribbon is from valen-tonia
Now it´s mine, mine, MINE :)

The amazing Kafka team also experimented with using Lurex thread for the Telephone,
which I think looks lovely too, especially for the Xmas season.
I got a very small bunch of these glittering ribbons, only a few meters
of each color, which I added to shop too.

The old looms are currently busy weaving the London bus ribbons again, so these should arrive next week.
But small amounts of the 3 colors are still available.

Wishing you a lovely, glittery weekend!
