Something Old, Something New………

I will start by saying that I tried to will myself to walk away from this ribbon when I happened upon it…….it’s impractical, impractical, and it’s also not very practical……………
then again, I reasoned, Twillypop is not really about being practical…that’s what the rest of my life is for. Besides, the color that can only be described as lagoonish, turquoisish (I know, it’s not a word……but it should be) kept beckoning to me and i caved, telling myself I would save it for “someday.”
Well, “someday” has arrived just a short week later……too irresistable…….
Everyone, meet Stella.. She’s a real charmer. She’s lagoon turquoise velvet ribbon that’s been laced with buttercream glass pearl beads. Here’s the kicker, the reason she’s one of a kind and the first piece in a vintagey collection I’m calling ‘something old, something new’…(too verbose?…I…can’t help myself…..) is that she’s been adorned with a vintage brooch I have picked up along the way. Old pin, new soft colorful ribbon, delicate buttery pearl beads………..
Dare I ask, what do YOU think?
