September 28, 2001
Maybe I was bored, maybe the past winter was just too cold, but most likely I was just tired of the silver roots that showed up 2 weeks after my hair was colored each month. It seems my natural hair color is almost all white. I decided to bleach.
Now, this is a major first for me. I’ve never had lightened hair and the process was long and scary but I was impelled to go as light as possible. It was a Have To Thing. Have you ever had one of those? I was even prepared to cut it all off. Who knows what got into me…I don’t.
I asked for Gwen Stefani but got this:
It’s lightening up each time it’s washed but it’s still too golden in the camera’s flash.
Don’t want you all to get startled when I do finally finish a garment and model it for you!
What’s next? Who knows, I’m in to trying new things….
Today is hopefully the beginning of the end to the cold snap that has kept me indoors and away from back porch photography. The porch is under the snow and I’m just not that kind of girl. Oh, the dogs demand that indeed I shall march through the frozen fields with them but modeling is just not a job I do out of doors in this kind of weather. There’s just not enough money in it, te-he!
So finished coat pix are coming…later this week.
In the meantime “They Did Not!”. Pendleton did not put all their current and classic styles on sale…oh noooo, just when my budget is completely snuffed by medical and insurance bills and the economy in general.
Oh but they did: Pendleton online catalog It’s a given that I’d snatch up any of the women’s garments in a heart beat. But, but, I’m not sputtering only for my own selfish interest, Dear Lord, the men’s sale is fabulous too! Please windfall me some cash really soon, like today?
I have lusted after iconic the wool robe for the Huspartner forever! His Sir Pendleton, Lodge and Board shirts have been staples of The Stitchery Christmas giving for the past number of years. These shirts are so gorgeous and they stay gorgeous for a very long time!
And now they are on sale.
I’ll live through this lack of cash somehow…I’ve survived a severe curtailment of fabric money for the past year so I can survive this. But, but, sniff.
On the Good News side of cold musings is that in visiting Annika’s Atelier and Esty Shop and generally catching up with this productive and lovely lady I’ve rediscovered a blog I used to love: Beauty Tips for Ministers PeaceBang is back and beauty blogging again. She’s been back for a while so I’ve got lots of reading to do. I love her writing style and thrift consciousness. And she talks about Proper Fit. LOVE….
Could Spring be just a few months away?
