Swirly Floors and Another Try at a Hairstyle

First, some news I forgot to tell yesterday - I won a print from Little Red House! I love Mary's blog. Her house is amazing and the photos she takes are fabulous! If you haven't seen her blog before, go back through her archive - you'll love it. Do you want to see the photo I won? Click here. It's so pretty - tranquil, ethereal... just wonderful. I will always treasure it. Be sure to take a look at the quote under the photo, too. That quote really spoke to me the day I read Mary's blog. I have some dreams and am trying to take the steps to make them happen. I think winning the photo is another sign that I am on the right track. My photo win resulted in something else that's amazing. Mary mentioned me and my new blog on her blog. And just like that, I had people I've never met stopping here to visit. And some of them emailed me! Blogging is so much fun. Why did I wait to start?

On with the FLOOR show - Here's the last of the painted floor designs I used in my house. Most people ask if I used a stencil to do this. No. It's sooooo easy. Take a look. It's just a bunch of -S-'s with some swirls and leaves and curly-q things attached. The hardest part was deciding which paintbrush to use. I really enjoyed this technique. It was almost meditative. I used the same technique in my coat closet and loft closet.

HAIR-BRAINED --- Just yesterday, I posted about my new simple and natural haircut (that nobody liked). Now I'm experimenting with un-natural - the usual styling methods involving tools and concoctions which takes years to master. Here it is. So far, the reactions seem far more favorable. And speaking of simple and natural, I think it might be time to set up a brow waxing appointment. And to think, I like to think of myself as some kind of bohemian, free-spirited, hippie chick. What a fake! At least I have a sense of humor.
