Nailed by LOVE

Hearts and skulls, and lots of Etsy listings. See what that coffee can do for you! I've made hearts with nails before but these are the first to have words wrapped with silver. I thought I'd start with the traditional red heart but I don't think that is going to last long. I've been so colorful lately I think I'm going to have to do some that are more OP Art oriented.

And, have you seen all of that material and clothing that is coming back. UCK, I'm sorry, really...I never got in to it the first time around. The only one who ever looked good in that stuff was Twiggy. The rest of us looked like some kind of walking targets or like we were standing under a painter.

And don't even get me started on bell bottoms and Cher's bangs. I'd say things to my girlfriends like, "It's no wonder you kissed that dork last night since you couldn't see what you were doing. Here.....want to borrow a barrette?" Now days there's Gothic, Punk, and all of those other styles. Whoo Hoo, don't tell anyone but THAT I could of gotten in to. Hey, let's all go and put a nice pink steak in our hair. It's a lot more fun than burning a bra and everyone will look at us. They might mumble something like, "Oh look Margaret, those poor pathetic women got the worst job from their colorist, do you know what salon they went to?" We can just smile that all knowing smile (uh, menopause/what was it I knew?) and keep walking. Didn't my grandmother have blue hair? And sometimes it was purple too. It's in the genes ladies. It's in the genes, and I don't mean bell-bottoms. : - )

Fabulous heart Sharon - I especially love the silver wrapped words around it!

As to the fashions - yep I remember them - yuk! Isn't it funnt how even the ones you wore the first time around you just can't bring yourself to 'do' again when they come back in.

I agree about the Goth - & I'd do that far more readily than don a pair of platforms ;o)

Sharon, I love that heart! You are really starting to spin out of control. I don't know what we'll do with you! The one thing I do know is that if you dye your hair purple or green or blue, I'll be there with you! Let's dye our hair together. That would be fun. Then we could go to a few thrift stores and find some bell bottoms and Cher wigs. Oh, what fun this halloween could be!
