Show And Tell: Your Hairstyle or Wardrobe From The Past
in the back of my hair for a ski slope.
Hello, and welcome to a Show And Tell feature of Tuesday's Question. I've decided to spice this weeks Question up a little bit, but I have to admit I had a little help from a good friend and great muse. (although she doesn't know it)
I borrowed the idea from a post that (yesterdays muse) Babs published yesterday at Beetle's Blog.
Here's the link to her post, which is entitled My Seventies Perm Disaster although from what I could tell it wasn't a disaster at all, just a funny post.
Another thing that is different this week, is that I need a picture of you from the past. Therefore, you may need a scanner or I suppose you can draw or describe yourself...but only- if you do not have a scanner available.
This is the second Tuesday's Question that is not entirely original, but I thought it would be fun, so I hope you like it. However, in order to expect you to do it, I had to myself.
This is at My mother-in-laws house, in 1986. She is giving me directions on how to the get to their new home. I remember I couldn't see because my hair was in my eyes. It's so flat on the top it resembles smashed cow poo, or at least it looks like that's what Taylor (my baby) was thinking.
Therefore, I thought I would show the world my eighties perm. disaster. This permanent lasted through my entire pregnancy, and well into the year after (Taylor) birth. But, remember you do not have to have had a permanent, we just want to know what you looked like in the past.
I cannot believe I am doing this, because although I'm an extroverted person with my friends, I'm otherwise intensely private and shy. Therefore, this will horrify me well into my old age, however, it probably wouldn't be a picnic for you either, but it might be a blast if we're in this together... in other words, if I can do it, then you can do it- So get out those pictures...and let's go back to the past~
How many of you are brave enough to share your old hairstyles and wardrobes with the internet?
Well, if you are there are two ways you can give us a glimpse into your past: You can e-mail me a picture at; firstname.lastname@example.org, which I can upload along with your comment, or you can post a picture on your blog and I will publish a link to your blog as always, along with your comment, except I'll link to the post where your picture is displayed. Make sense?
Whichever way you feel more comfortable, is fine. Also, if you do not have a picture or a scanner a description will be fine, but don't cheat, because me and Gatsby (my blog dog at the end of the page) will know...and that will not be a good thing...
If you have any questions or advice about how to post your photos, please do not hesitate to e-mail me or leave a comment.
I really cannot believe I'm doing this, but here goes...(Would you believe my hands are shaking? Oh...and by the way I'm carrying an 8 pound baby in the image at the top where I'm about to stuff my face, I wasn't that heavy.
Alright, that's it I started it off, and now it's up to you...

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
