My Hair

~with thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Cottage Days for all the photography help!~

My hair has been the topic of conversation many times on this blog. Now if I had flowing autumn auburn hair, one might understand it. I don't. What I have is graying hair, curly frizzy hair, and too long hair.

Mercifully, there's a hair appointment in my future. This morning in fact. I certainly hope that things go better than they did another time *here* and the following day *here.* And so help me, if John makes any whacky comments, he could get clobbered. Just sayin'... My nerves are not what they once were.

What does all this have to do with the flower collage? Nothing. I'm just not wasting it is all. I spent some time making it Sunday afternoon and then discovered that Mary's Mosaic Monday was not going to be taking place. Then I was going to post it Monday, but Judy posted about our meeting so I had to keep up. Then I was going to post it yesterday, but Fioré was cuter. So you're getting it today and that's all there is to that. ☺

Perhaps I should have gone wordless today...

Love Vee

  3. I'm glad you didn't decide to go wordless today. I enjoy starting my day with your interesting conversation and great sense of humor.
    I hope your hair appointment goes well. I'd hate to see John get clobbered :D.
    Your beautiful mosaic caught my eye. The flowers are so bright and clear and the background is lovely.

    1. The background is a failed photo from the same shoot. They always work well because the colors are so complementary.

  4. The mosaic is gorgeous and I'm glad you posted it. Flowers always make me smile...and reading your posts almost always do that for me, too.

    Good luck with the haircut. I feel for you, my hair never does what I think it should. Once upon a time I had a haircut that really worked, but we moved and the new gal was never able to cut it right. Now I just go in for a cut and whatever happens, happens. So frustrating!

    My wish is that today's haircut is the perfect one for you.

  5. My hair is gray/white hair that is frizzy/curly/wavy. I hate to go to the salon. I wish you good luck today.
    Love the collage; very colorful.

  8. Your flowers are lovely! Good luck with the hair cut. I got mine cut last week and my hubby didn't notice. I thought about not fixing dinner...bet he would've noticed that! Haha!

  9. The flowers are beautiful! I know what it feels like to get a hair cut and be scared...my hair is so thin, I always hate getting anything done to it!

  10. The flower mosaic is stunning, Vee, I too am glad you didn't go Wordless Wednesday, as I always enjoy your reading your posts. Enjoy your new haircut today, and I am supposing John reads your blog, therefore he has been given the heads up. (no pun intended).
    Hugs,
    Sue

  11. Great flower photo mosaic! I see the "sunny 16 rule" is alive and well in Maine, LOL! I'm tickled that we can provide you some photography assistance. It's just too bad that we don't live close and can't go out on photo shoots together!

    I keep my hair ultra-short and it works for me. It's about the easiest cut that a hairdresser can possibly do, and it takes special effort to mess it up. And I also brave getting it done at a local Great Clips store where the cuts only cost $10. I'd much rather spend my money on camera stuff and trips, LOL. Good luck to you! And be sure to smack John up the side of his head if he makes any smart-aleck comments about it! hahaha......

  12. The flower collage is beautiful!
    I hope you get a good haircut today. I have one scheduled for next Tuesday.

  13. Good luck with your hair appt. I used to be a hairdresser, and I've seen it from both sides. I cut my own. It's a self-defense mechanism. It always seems that I sit down, we talk, I explain what I want with pics....and she forgets what we talked about as soon as she picks up the scissors. I hope you have better luck. Hey, many of us are going gray. One thing that helps is to go in for a makeover. Changeing our makeup makes a world of difference when our hair starts changeing. I don't even use the same makeup colors anymore and it really made me feel better to get some advice from someone besides my daughters. There are even some products out there for gray dry hair. I can't stop aging, but I can fight it every step of the way. I'm even letting it grow out. I think up-dos are waaaayyy underrated. :D You go girl!

  14. You made me giggle, Vee :) I am sorry about your hair "issues." I do hope your hair appointment goes well and thank you for sharing the flowers - they are beautiful.

    Hugs to you!

  15. Oh this is fun. Now I can picture exactly where you are hanging out this morning...the place you pointed out as we cruised by. May you have a spa-like experience over there...and be thrilled with your new hair! :) I'm glad you never wasted the mosaic. And besides...it goes well with a hair post (choosing colours, simple or fancy style, etc). Just don't go for blue hair!

    And John...no wise cracks!

  16. I hope your hair appointment goes well. By the way, your flowers photos are beautiful!

  17. I love how you put your posts together... like conversation... for how wackily wonderful does a conversation go with a group of women. My dad used to tell my mom he can't keep up... 'I thought you were talking about this!' Well that was 4 topics earlier. hahaha

    So flowers and hair together in one post, why not...

    All the best for a good hair appointment.

  18. I hope your hair comes out lover-ly. I have a huge hair obsession. I admit it. I have a standing appointment every three weeks with my stylist. Of course, my "stylist" is really an old friend who cuts hair out of a shop behind her home for ten bucks. So really, I just like the excuse to go and talk for a while. It takes her about an hour and a half to trim my hair of its three weeks growth. Really, it does. That's because we do more talking than clipping.

    I have more to say, but I will zip it and tell you that your mosaic is lover-ly and I'm glad you didn't waste it.

  19. Oh no dear, your unwordlessness is an inspiration to us all. I hope all goes well with the hair...

  20. Notice how all us power women love your style of posting. Cute, cute and amusing. Always makes me smile. I am looking around trying to find a linky party for Wednesday. Seems I can better keep up with which day of the week it is. You know go to my list. My hair is white,white almost silver. I sometime have a perm put in and I like to wear the 'wet look.' You know just messed up. LOL. I suppose you have naturally curly hair. Actually I like white hair like mine better in a smart straight cut. Still looking for the right stylist to do that. For sure we will read and enjoy whatever you post dear sista.

  21. So glad you didn't go wordless. I don't really get those posts anyway - does it mean no one comments, either?
    Haircuts can be scary events. I hope yours is soothing and you come out feeling as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside. My hair is frizzy and curly, too. I've finally realized that product is a good thing and my flat iron is my hair's best friend.
    Now I'm going out to weed the garden in the drizzle and I'll have to treat my hair when I come back in. Frizz likes nothing better than drizzle for getting excited and out of control.

  22. Good luck with the hair appt. I can completely understand about hair, I use have to pretty long & thick hair, then it fell out due to breast cancer and now 6 yrs later, it is baby fine thin. Trying to find the right 'do' has been difficult. Your flower collage is very pretty. Hopefully you will post pics about your hair. Blessings

  23. your flowers are beautiful! You have lovely hair, I wish I had some curls but I understand that we always want what we don't have, lol, god luck, I have never had the same hair cut twice at the salon so I have cut my own for twenty years, I just chop it off, no one ever guesses I cut it myself, so ther ya go, have blind and I cut my own hair, what a hoot, maybe you could give it a go!

  24. I'm glad you posted this beautiful collage today and that it wasn't wordless! Good luck with your new do. When we were out west the air is so dry that my hair performed beautifully. When we got home I was thankful a hair appointment was scheduled the next week as my hair was out of control and frizzy. Off it came! We just need to move west Vee!!

  25. You could have put it in the queue for when Mary gets back but I know you'll have more inspiration before then, besides. we enjoyed it today while hoping your hair experience today is all you hoped it would be. I finally found a hair stylist who actually listened to me!

  26. I had my hair cut last week and it looks marvelous (no thanks to me, the beautician lived up to her name as she had little to work with in that department). I love my hair short...I'll bet yours looks wonderful too!

  27. Your flower mosaic is lovely! And if you come to visit me, I'm warning you....the humidity will make any hair curl. Well, except mine! Mine gets a little poofier though! lol What? Poofier is not a word? Enjoy your afternoon! Hugs!

  28. Hope all goes well with the hair - boy, can I relate!! I found someone who can actually make my limp, fine, turning grey hair look half decent - she moved 1 1/2 hours away and guess what - I drive the distance every 6-8 weeks. She lives in a small village near Lake Huron and my husband teases me that I'm driving to the "coast" for a haircut! Your flowers are beautiful. Looking forward to a picture of your new doo.

  29. Surely you could have tied that flower collage into your hair by telling us you used to wear Flowers In Her Hair- (remember THAT song?.) I hope we get to see a picture of the new "do". xo Diana

  30. The flowers are beautiful.
    Hair - I'm not liking mine very much about now either. Weather is making it frizzy. I've always wanted black silky very straight LONG hair. Oh and thick too. You know like on those commercials.

    Hope you got a great cut and you are happy with it. : )

  31. oh hair is such a dilemma! but whenever i complain
    about mine, i make myself stop and be thankful i
    actually have some.

    your haircut will be perfect. please show us a pic.

    ps. tell john that i'm on the lookout for some nice
    green shoes for him. :)

  32. Oh Vee - that's my entertainment for today - what a hoot you are I've had a lovely chuckle!
    I loved the two links you gave us - especially John's remark about Gaddafi!
    I love your hair 'do' in the photo next to MG - it really suits you.

    I'm an awkward hair sufferer too - it's a very serious affliction that others with normal hair just don't understand...
    My hair is totally grey now and has changed texture to THIN and FLUFFY - can you imagine how that feels after having long thick tresses in my previous life???
    My hairdresser asks wickedly "how's the hair been" well what can I say.
    We can only laugh.

    Sunday afternoon I prepared my mosaic too for Marys party, then found she is away.... I'm obviously not back 'in the swing' of things yet! I still posted.

    hugs

  33. Let's not talk about heir. I grew my bangw out for the wedding, they were donwn to my chin. Last week while getting ready for work...I took my scrap booking scissors and cut my bangs back!

  34. I had a wasted mosaic too but used it for another post and I knew Mary was taking a couple of weeks off.
    I remember BJ getting a new hairstyle last year, I think and she described it as sassy. Well, I loved that description and the next time I was at my hairdresser's, I told her I wanted to look "sassy". She's a young gal and thought that was hilarious! Needless to say, I still look the same.

  35. I can't even discuss hair...I had my first appointment here in North Carolina and hate my hair. This to shall pass, XOXO

  36. I hope you're cute and happy tonight! A new haircut can boost your spirits...or...well, we'll just hope that it boosted your spirits. (I had a bad hair day today. Humidity and all...)

    Your flower collage is beautiful, so colorful and glowing. I agree that Fioré was cuter...but it is a beautiful collage and I'm glad you decided to share it. The blooms are fading... (You notice I didn't mention that other season.)

  37. Lovely collage! I send you my best wishes for happiness with your new hair-do!

  38. Waste not want not... I do look forward to hearing about your hair from time to time...and wonder if we'll hear good news on that front today.

  39. I hope you were happy with your new haircut, Vee! I have not been happy with my hair lately. My grey roots are showing way too quickly and the dry air and intense sun has made my hair frizzy. My hairdresser has advised me to use a hot oil treatment once a week--if I had the time and energy I would do that but I haven't been too successful. It also costs me more to have my hair done here than it did in Brooklyn--we had so many salons there they had to be competitive in price. Here, no such luck :(

  40. You are too funny! Good luck with the hair appt. The last time I went in for a trim, I lost about 3-4 inches. Now I'm on the search for a new hair dresser.
