A Romantic Hairstyle and Lace Dress




Oh, what fun...  my young lady daughter who just a few years ago liked more "tomboy" things.... now enjoys dressing up sometimes.

She wanted to have her hair curled to look nice with her  beautiful lacy dress she planned to wear for church.











 It started with putting sponge rollers in her hair the night before. Her older sister put the rollers in her wet hair, so that by morning she would have curls. 

There were 61 rollers! This daughter has a LOT of hair! I remember sleeping on those pink rollers when I was a kid... it wasn't too comfortable. She did say that she didn't sleep very well.  :)The things we do to have curls!

This morning, my older daughter is shown here taking the rollers out of her hair.







We have curls!!!

 I pulled curls to the top and back and held them in place with bobby pins. A little here...a little there... it was starting to get that romantic look. :)  

We put a pretty comb at the top and called it done. She looked beautiful... of course she always does, but this was special....














 Lace dress, curls in her hair, pearl earrings...  the stuff of princess dreams. 



By the way, a couple of her brothers didn't like the curls... they prefer her hair as it usually is which is a bit wavy and a bit straight, not curly.
 Brothers can be like that... but they tolerate the curls and really like that she dresses in such a feminine way. Of course, they rarely TELL her that!   :) 



This pretty and romantic hairstyle takes a little longer than braids or other types of hairstyles, but it is special and worth the extra effort sometimes.  :)
















The lace dress has a full skirt and works great for twirling! :) 

The hairstyle was a success, although I should have put a few more bobby pins in it... after a couple of hours, some of the curls started to fall down a bit.

All in all it was a success..... but we won't do it very often. That just makes it all the more special.

How precious to see our children grow and enjoy life. What a blessing that God has entrusted these kids to us... we need to be so careful to raise them to honor the Lord.

Thank you for visiting today.

Silhouette Beauty






























 Silhouettes... they are just dark outlined shapes... nothing special...... 

and yet, there is something intriguing about them.










The sky is beautiful... but so are the outlined shapes that are dark against the sky.














 I am so thankful for the variety of beauty it is possible to find.....   I hope you are also able to enjoy the beauty of the silhouettes you see. Thank you for visiting...  I hope you have a nice week.  :)




"Oh Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!"

Geese At Sunset



It was a beautiful evening... a simple trip to the park..... a sunset on the water as the geese swam. Beautiful.



 



 Sunset on the water... reflections...  a peaceful time... a gentle setting..... a nice way to end the day.













Silhouettes of the geese... a fleeting moment.... and beautiful. So easily missed and so glad we were there.


There is beauty all around us... many times in our busyness, we miss it. It is good to train ourselves to look for those snippets of beauty.... they are there....






"He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end."   Ecclesiastes 3:11
