A few projects I've been working on

My best friend Lies, from Belgium just had a sweet baby boy in September and I made her this quilt.  She loves color!

I also painted our master bedroom.  I am not sure if I like it yet.  I always choose paint color darker than I want.  Oh well, it will do for the next year or so.

Also found this 'little' critter on my window.  Thankfully he was OUTSIDE!!


I decided the other day that my hair was thirsty, and it was time to give it a bit of a nutrient fix.  I found a bazillion 'homeade hair masks' with all kinds of ingredients from egg yolks to yogurt to rainbow sprinkles.  Ok, I made the sprinkles part up-but it wasn't too far off of some options.

I gave it a go, and instantly started having flashbacks to being 7 years old, swimming in the Raymond outdoor pool when all my cousins and sisters' hair would turn green in the chlorine!

 Here's the concoction I used: 

1 avocado
1/2 c of honey
1 egg yolk
2 TB of olive oil

Sadly, my hair didn't come out like the girl in the Pantene commercials, but maybe it was a little softer and more voluminous than before?
