My Dad's horse show ribbons

This was a hubba hubba day when it came to purging another closet in our house! I found my Dad’s horse show ribbons from the 1940s and 50s. I haven’t seen these for ten years! A few years ago when the altered ribbons started showing up on different blogs, I wondered where this collection might be. I finally had resigned myself to the fact that they were probably given away when we downsized my Mom’s things.

The ribbons are staying in their Frederick and Nelson box, but not going back in the big “treasures” box. It was too large, and too easy to fill to the brim. And then because it was so nice and big, I could stack a load of stuff on top of it. Easy access is one of my new mottos. -- Beth
