Ribbons Glorious Ribbons...


I'm very excited about my new Martha Stewart ribbon dispenser, that I picked up at Spotlight in Logan on the weekend. Isn't it just glorious! I'm not sure if it's age(!) or simply a newfound distaste for mess - but this kind of nifty organizational tool really rocks my socks off!

I hear you. The older I get the more obsessed I am becoming with organization. Nothing makes me happier than to have everything in its proper place (not that I always achieve this). This ribbon dispenser is perfection!

I don't really have too many ribbons hanging around to mess up my life, but I can see your pleasure. My guilty organisational tool pleasures are much more basic: a cup for my pens and colourful soft tubs for laundry (one for each member of the house so they can put away their OWN washing).

I completely agree, the older I get the more organised I have become. If everything is in its place then I can focus on the important things. Love the ribbon dispenser!

Oh oh oh, so Spotlight is now stocking Martha Stewart?????? Please tell me YES!

Shannon Fricke said...

Sharnel - I'm very happy to report that the answer is YES... A gorgeous range too - of ribbons, decorations and general crafting bits and bobs! Yay!

Sharnel said...

Shannon you've just made my day.... or maybe even year! How exciting. I've wanted one of those ribbon dispensers forever. First thing tomorrow you know where you will find me.
Thanks for being the bearer of good news!

That was my question -does Spotlight stock Martha Stewart? Can't believe there hasn't been any advertising about it. I will be there tomorrow! Thanks for the tip.

I popped into spotlight yesterday -though sadly it was right on closing time: I saw the Martha Range in the distance and my heart ached- LOL. Exquisite! The desire to "stow-away" and look at all those beautiful things was real. Love the ribbon dispenser. No prizes for guessing where I'm heading to today.
I love your blog shannon - somehow I can't imagine you are ever surrounded by mess

I love it but my collection is sooo huge. I have a dowel towel rod they all hang off of...3 rows!!! Yes I know its a problem...

Nadine said...

Can you hear me screaming! I'm heading there now - will it be open at midnight?

Michelle said...

Shannon - such glorious news - I love all things Martha too.

Stella said...

What a thing of beauty. I want one too. Right now my ribbons are stuffed in a drawer... it could be time to set them free LOL!xx

It's a great-looking ribbon dispenser, but especially enjoy seeing how you styled it, with the items above. I didn't have the discipline to put my ribbons on any sort of dowel. I just threw them all into a large glass hurricane. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/17390271@N02/3581124354/in/set-72157618908700951/)

Stella said...

Thanks to your post Shannon I sped off to Spotlight after school drop-off during the week. There they all were, all the Martha goodness!!! Just beautiful so my new ribbon box has tidied up my area somewhat and even launched me into a pre-Spring (much needed) cleanup of my office area.

I am writing to you this morning from outside Maleny, my morning has begun with toast, a lovely espresso and your book 'Space'....what a lovely way to start my Sunday. I do really feel the same way you do about leaving behind city life and heading for the hills.

Happy days!
