Overnight with a Hair-Do!
Not every friend is willing to go along with my fifties celebration using curlers. (Even fewer friends are willing to go along with capturing the moment with a camera.) I gave my friend Christy the ultimate friendship test by asking her if she was game to go along with some curler fun. Since I was visiting her home from out of town, we were "having a sleepover" so that added to the retro feel. We stood in front of her powder room mirror, gasping with laughter at our incompetent attempts at beautification. The wine we'd enjoyed on the patio a bit earlier helped us find the whole thing more amusing than it should have been. Our hair-dos after the curlers? Not worth recording!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
