horse show ribbons

after trying on the we love (heart) vera sweetheart neckline highest accolades dress from anthropologie,

(which btw is now
on my wish list.
ignore the jeans.
sometimes i get a
little lazy in the
fitting room.)

it got me thinking of horse show prize ribbons and using them in decor. i have noticed them around at garage sales or even at hunt and gather yesterday:

a few years back, blog this is glamorous, featured them here. i loved the pictures so much, i thought i would also share with you:

i love the idea of using them as a headboard as Francine Zaslow did via design is mine. it works especially well in that awkward nook, where a traditional rectangle or square would never fit.

this second photo, from Mark Lund, uses trophies and ribbons together. i love how the ribbons are feaured in old frames. so creative!

a favorite blog of mine, everyday beauty, featured these ribbons that she created here. i am constantly amazed by her skills!

this last photo is from Kristina at kristatomic. i have a special place in my heart for pink and green - so of course i loved the ribbons together. All of the photos on her site are quite lovely, so stop by and browse if you get a moment.

until next time,
