Queen Of The Hay
Spring has definitely blossomed in my hometown! The wild flowers this season are heavenly, orange California poppy's, purple lupine, and luscious sweet peas bloom wildly along the highways and foothills. And, like many of my fellow sufferers, my proboscis has gone into overdrive combating the pollens it sucks up like a vacuum cleaner on steroids. I've made friends, good friends, with my Viva paper towels...my snout prefers them to any other hanky hands down. I stare out the window and long to participate in that lovely world outside my glass barrier.....but that's not going to happen as long as there's that poison in the air! So,I decided it was a good time to make myself ....Queen Of The Hay....hay fever that is. I reached for the chicken wire, some lonely baubles, and my book about Marie Antoinette....she had a little trouble with her upper extremities too...hence her image on my newest creation. If I'm trapped indoors I might as well look regal doing it...maybe I'll eat cake too!
I was born a twin, although I was the first one to appear, so maybe that makes me the normal one. Anyway, my mother was fond of Toni perms in the 50's and thought our straight blond hair could reap the benefits of that products curly promises......questionable! The hair solution was so nasty all the windows and doors had to be opened, any food product left out on a counter had a slight mystery flavor, the cat stayed outside for a week. And the end result...well, my twin and I refer to that period as the "duelling Bozo's"
"Absolutely gorgeous--even better than the photo! Lightning-fast shipping, impeccable packing, friendly correspondence. A perfect transaction."
"This is BEAUTIFUL!!! And it had the best shipping packaging of any thing I have ever recieved in the mail."
"Such a lovely creation! It arrived so quickly from overseas and the seller is very helpful and accomodating. I would love to own another one and I'm sure I'll be back to make another selection soon! thank you so much for all your help!"
"OMG!! So beautiful and perfect!! I love everything about it! THANK YOU!"
