Fall Frivolity

Falling in love with fall is about spending time outside in the cool, crisp air . . .
football {at least here in the South, lol} . . .
baking with my family. . .
craft fairs and state fairs.

Recently, I have been falling in love with prize ribbons!
Any kind ~ from small scale prize ribbon jewelry to large prize ribbons for decorating.

In the spirit of fall {and the fact I am a textile junkie}, I wanted to combine multiple
textures ~ delicate and airy, caramel and velvet.

Here is what came out of that inspiration.

I love the refined ribbons and tattered linen.
{I like to junk it up a bit, ;-)  }

First prize deserves a sparkly brooch right?
I knew when I saw this one it would be perfect for a fall prize ribbon.

I am displaying mine on my basket.  However, it would also look nice on a fall wreath for the front door
or pinned on chair backs for festive Thanksgiving dining decor.

Wishing you a happy fall season my Sugahs!
