That lovely tangle of thread along the bottom of each card is a hideous florist's ribbon (from the 1970s) that a friend bestowed on me. Remember how everything organic and natural became the rage? This vintage "ribbon" was burlap's answer to lace. I love the stuff!
I don't know who coined the phrase, "if nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies", but Emily Pruitt gave me a tag with that sentiment and I have been in love with it ever since.
