I think it was some time ago, but Lauren moved to Texas and now writes a really creative blog about a variety of things, usually about her OTTB Simon. The other day she wrote about equestrian themed horse decor for your home and shared some ideas about re-purposing your horse show ribbons. You can read about it here.
I had been complaining about the massive pile of ribbons in my office at home just the day or so before I read Lauren's post. Perfect timing on her part! I really like getting ribbons, and it's easy when there are only one or two riders in the class, but seriously, the pile had gotten out of control. I had them hanging from framed prints, a book shelf, and photos. Lately, I have just been depositing them straight to the floor.
After seeing Lauren's post, I pulled all the ribbons down and made some kind of organized heap on the floor.
