july 26

lake house

(scenes from my parent's lake house)


...And I'm back. What a whirlwind July has been - and it's not over! But, at least I'm back in San Francisco and can start slowly settling myself back into the normalcy of things. I have about 5 zillion things to take care of. Emails.. etsy messages.. sewing.. washing.. picture taking.. etsy listings.. sleeping - but it'll have to wait until Wednesday. Tomorrow is my birthday and today I plan on sprucing up my apartment (for a teeny tiny cupcake/prosecco party) and hopefully finding a bow tie for Westley to wear tomorrow... something barber shop/Gatsby lawn picnic appropriate to go with my pink 20s dress. The weather might be totally wretched here right now for me to run around in a thin, sheer dress - but dang it - Westley will wear a bow tie!

In other non-weather clothing related woes, I'm having the pre-birthday crazies. I just chopped more layers into my hair and I'm seriously considering walking to Walgreens and buying a box of hair dye. I know how damaging drug store hair dye is for your hair, so I won't actually go through with it ... but I'm really itching to change my hair color to something more golden. I found a box of photos of my mom in the late 60s/early 70s and I'm having major hair envy. I took photos of the photos, but I really should wait to share them until I scan them in properly... Until then, please enjoy these photos of some flowers I currently have sitting in my kitchen!

Happy Birthday.
July has been a whirlwind for me also. But then I cringe thinking how boring December will be.

Enjoy

I love those green jars you have your flowers in! Are they like sugar/flour jars, or were they preserve/canning ones? I'm on the hunt to collect mason jars and the like for my wedding reception.

Oh! And many happy returns on your b-day tomorrow!

This is a very random question, but I am wondering if your hair colour is natural or if you get it dyed. I am growing mine out at the moment and I love your colour, so I am looking into getting it dyed. If you do dye it, do you get foils or a full colour?

Cheers

Happy Birthday lovely lady!

Happy birthday (a bit late! ;)!!!

I've been having serious thoughts about changing my hair color too... I really want to go red, and even tried dying my hair with some henna a few weeks ago (it didn't really do anything), but keep waffling. lol. Which is typical for me!

dont dye your hair! i had a similar urge just a couple weeks ago, but i ended up returning the hair dye to rite aid. store bought stuff has so many terrible peroxides in them. youre better off going to a salon and having done by a professional. it will last longer and be better for your hair!

i should take my own advice, but your hair is the prettiest shade of blonde so dont do it!

p.s. happy belated bday!
