Kristy, i'm really tempted to do my own hair, but I'm also nervous about losing my highlights. Decisions, decisions...

I'm trying to be creative right now by making DIY mercury glass vases.

I'm not sure if the link will take you directly to it, but it's the second slide.    I found vases at Goodwill, had to order the spray paint on Amazon and they are currently drying.  I'm not sure they are going to turn out like the picture, but we shall see.  Maybe from a distance they'll look good!

I think they turned out okay, not quite what I was expecting.  They look fine on my sheIlves, as long as you don't get too close ;)

They were clear vases, I really like the shape of the one on the right. I need my hydrangeas to start blooming so I can dry some more. They look pretty in them.

I'm always so jealous of the hydrangeas you have?  they are just beautiful?  I don't think they'd grow well here... or maybe I just don't have the right sun/shade ratio in my yard.

dyk...

we bought an elliptical machine on Monday.

Larry spent the entire day putting it together

and something is wrong with it ;)

the cord has to be in a very specific position for the power to stay on

not cool!

Larry will call to get a repairman out here to look at it

thankfully it has a warranty!
