I let it go too long....

I let it go too long without getting it done....yes, look at these gray roots and flat as a pancake top heavy hair on Friday morning.........

but after visiting Jay at the shop on Friday afternoon, and some big blond chunky foil highlights later.... voila.....I am happy again! Having a month of bad hair days was a killer and it is amazing - and may sound pathetic - how much lighter and happier I feel with my hair done!!


I know, I know that in the scheme of things in the world right now, this isn't a serious issue, but if something so easy can make a person so happy (me).....well I say Happy Day!

Also, I put together these little simple bottles with a strip of scrap paper, copy of an old pic and millenery flowers from an old hat.....I think they are quite cute (and the bottles came from the antique mart where I purchased them for 50 cents). I may add a ribbon on the stem.

First of all, thanks for stopping by my place today, I love company~I also love your bottles. I love old wine bottles and old medicine bottles. I have several cobalt (blue) bottles that my grandmother left me. I'm a happy girl after visiting with the charming Amanda who does miracles with her scissors and coloring potions!! Why, I don't look a day over...well, I'll not start lying, lol...I'm 60 and proud of it right up to the grey roots in my red hair!

Thank you for commenting on my blog, sweetpea! Yep, men are funny. Look, I love your hair and I love gray hair. I'm just a few years away from 70 (yikes!) but that's how I color my hair.....let the gray show through. VoilĂ , instant color....natural also. Hah!! You're a doll, honey. Personally, with my hairdresser, Karli, if I was rich I'd adopt her and let her do my hair allllll daaaaay long.....every day. :-)

I love your bottles - they are very bright and cheerful. Your hair looks great! I agree - if it makes you happy then there is nothing wrong with showing it off! There is enough doom and gloom out there.

Lolly,
Thanks for the blog comment: yes, I think you should put a call out there to any or all Lolly's for a "Lolly Swap" swap! Or maybe an open "Lolly Pop Swap" or "Lily Lolli Swapie"...or...or maybe I should lay off the coffee...

Thanks for coming by, may I ask what your glue of choice is for attaching paper to glass? I kinda like yes because it doesnt bubble up so much. Laurie

That is too funny, you are a brave woman for showing the grey. I am 38 and yes I have a few in there too. Right now I just need a high light very badly LOL
