I have been meaning to take a trip to the Offray Ribbon Outlet for like, my whole life, so we finally decided to do it.  We dropped most of the kids off at co-op kept two little girls and headed out. 

It's really nothing more than a hole in the warehouse but it didn't disappoint.  It was smaller than I thought it would be, but we managed to find lots of fun stuff!  The prices were great--5.00 for 50 yards was pretty much standard, but there was some stuff that was even cheaper.  

Jayne and Jill getting in a little pose before leaving--and cute Kelley making a few last minute decisions....

Jayne probably thought I was a little psycho when I asked her to help me snack them cute for a picture.  Seriously--I've been waiting a long time to get a picture like this.

I went a little heavy on the pinks because that's always my favorite.  If this stash doesn't inspire me to get working on my attic room, I don't know what will.  I am really excited to get them all hanging on dowels for my little eye to behold every day.  That's the main reason I bought so much--I just can't wait to see them as decoration!  Then....I'll figure out how to use them.

The little girls were in heaven!  They couldn't keep their hands off!  They kept saying, "Birthday cake! Birthday cake!

And blowing out the candles of course!  

Time (and money) well spent, I think.

I also laughed at " I can't wait to see what they look like as decoration.. Then figure out what to do with them.. " Amen Girl! :)

ribbon is seriously so pleasing. Smart thinking on using it as a functional decoration.
