Little Shop of Sketches - sketch 52

The Story

I got my hair done last Fri ( long overdue ! )
& after patiently sitting down for more than 3 hours ,
I walked out of the hair salon with
some new red highlights on a purplish red base color ,
with a classic chinadoll bob .

These days I am making it a point to do self portraits
on good hair days & so, here's one result .

I also found this wonderful poem on a Female perspective of Aging
& couldn't resist using parts of it
to journal with .

A Woman of My Age

(By Theresa S)
They say...
A woman of my age should not let her hair
Fall below the marks of her shoulder.
It will bring the face down
And make her look older.

But I say...
A woman of my age
Should let her hair grow.
When it gets too long
I think she will know

A woman of my age
Is secure and finally sure of herself.
She doesn't long to be nineteen,
But neither is she ready for the shelf.

Lily Bee Audrey line for papers, die cut , rub ons , tulle flowers,
packaging for the tulle flowers
Stickles on masked swirls , misted in over a KI lace cardstock
