"Because I'm worth it..."

...I spent $7.95 (plus tax) at Walmart for Loreal Preference, #UL61, ultra light ash brown (ultra lightening no brass technology) - which was supposed to turn my dark brown hair a very, very light brown (almost a dark blonde) and instead, turned it, well BRASS!!! I look nothing like the model on the box (okay, I looked nothing like her before, either) but neither does my hair. I suppose I should not be surprised at this result for a whopping $7.95 (plus tax), but all those Sarah Jessica Parker commercials really convinced me that I would be fabulously happy with the result. Maybe I'll just paint some Golden acrylics in ochre next time, with a #2 sable brush.

So while we're on the topic of brass, here are some great keys that my husband found for me at a recent auction. He brings back some fabulous treasures for me to incorporate into my artwork. They were apparently rusty pieces that some old git found with a metal detector.

I guess I only have one thing to say: Did you know that rain can cause flooding?? Matches can start fires and water puts them out. Rock, paper, scissors.....

You know, there was always something a tiny bit "funny" about Jessica Sarah Parker anyway - so I'm not surprised that she trashed you the first chance she got :-).

eek! I have been thinking about going for 'color in a box' myself, but it's stories like these that make me hesitate! I was a guru at hair color when I was in high school, but it's been so long I'm afraid I've probably lost my touch!

What a great find, and how awesome your husband is that he knew to bring these home to you!

I had so many of those hair-coloring experiences that I finally decided to let my hair be what it is: deep dark brown with lots of silver highlights!

Love your blog--a great find thru Studio Friday! I've probably been here before, but your SF really grabbed me today!
