i'm ready for the weekend
The title of this post has nothing to do with the contents of this post. That's okay though. I promise to dazzle you with pictures of new stuff. Last night I colored my hair. It's dark dark brown, from Garnier Fructis or whatever the heck you call it. I had to do SOMETHING, the grey hair was taking over. Seriously. Where are they coming from? I don't even have kids! I do really like how it turned out, the greys are all covered, and I think this worked better than when I had it colored in the salon!
It looks more auburn in the sun, but overall- it's a cool color. Will have to keep it mind next time I need it.
Last night I created a bouquet from my garden. One thing that I seem to do well, like- really really am successful is growing roses! They do so well in my yard. Right now I have these pretty pale yellow roses, and I paired them with some of the hydrangeas from my hydrangea trees. I thought it was gorgeous color and some good inspiration to share with you on the blog.
Pretty, huh?? Couldn't you just eat that color!?
I have to finish up this blog post so I can list several new items.... Such as this cool egg bracelet featuring Kelley's egg beads. I needed to use several together in one piece, I have been dreaming about them! I added a little extender chain with a small bird charm. Eggstra special!
...And I also used some of my copper patterned sheet metal that I got at Bead Fest. I oxidized the discs, and as I was doing it, I was wondering how to get that multi-colored effect that I sometimes see on patinated metal. I left the discs in too long I think, because they were a deep dark grey when I took them out of the Liver of Sulphur concoction. Once I buffed them, they weren't really looking very copper like at all. But I still dig the effect that the darkening caused. And you can't beat that lovely wood grain pattern! I used some small blue faceted glass beads, and a handcrafted Shibu clasp from Saki Silver, that I also got at Bead Fest.
Okay gotta go, or I'll be listing forever tonight! about 11 new items coming to Etsy momentarily.
