And the tassels just keep on coming !!

I am actually putting them all in a closet so they will stay relatively clean.

For any of you ribbon junkies .......I found this shoe rack and it works for big spools of ribbon - and then the smaller rolls or the delicate vintage pieces go in the shoe boxes. I am embarrassed to say how long it took me to get this done - and also that there is still MORE.

12 rows - each row a different color

All these beautiful things have made me realize I need to re-open Carolyn Hats

Aren't they so lovely?


  1. oh yes, have ribbon galore, and you know how to use it.
    I dunno...sounds like it is in the family to run a hat store. You have more than enough genes and style. Do it. It'd be gorgeous!

  2. Oh Mary I knew we had so much in common!! I thought I was the queen of ribbon, but you have me beat and you have the crowns too!! I love ribbons, ribbons and oh yea did I say ribbons!! Great shop of arranging them the way you did. Soo... when is the hat business openint it's doors? Hugs my friend and a wonderful weekend! xoxo

  3. Yay Mary!! Great job on the organization! I LOVE the color groups- swoon! I can't wait to see your first hats in your new collection! Your new venture is going to be a HUGE success! I am so excited for you!


This is a huge project - your interest in St. Marys keeps me energized and I love hearing from you
