Yesterday I had my hair colored, cut, and styled.
Today I will have a manicure.
Tomorrow I will get a pedicure.
(I'm just as bad as any other woman, obviously.)
So today, I thought I'd show you a miscellaneous collection of photos related to female beauty. Some are from our travels, but most are from right inside our kitchen just a few weeks ago during the Christmas holidays.
Let's start with some photos from the Glenn Curtiss Museum in Hammondsport, New York. The husband/lover/best friend and I camped in the area back in the fall, and made a very worthwhile day trip to this museum. I'll have more pictures to show you on another day.
Mostly the museum is a collection of the inventions of Glenn Curtiss - bikes, motorcycles, airplanes, and airboats. But the display also includes other miscellaneous items from down through the years that are displayed nearby to his planes of the same eras.
One area was designated for items used for "Female Attractions." Here is a description from back in the day of what all females apparently aspired to:
And near to this poster, one of these miraculous chairs from the Health Jolting Chair Company was sitting right there! I cannot believe that some lady has not stolen it!
Imagine that! Just sit in one of these chairs, let it do whatever it does to you, and then you are miraculously attractive, intelligent, and all the rest. Unfortunately the signs said to stay off, so I'm just the same ole me.
Well, over the holidays we were just sittin' in our regular old kitchen chairs trying to acquire the same thing - female beautification. I don't know if our chairs were working as well as those Health Jolting Chairs, but we were having some simple family fun, just spending time together.
Here daughter Sarah is making art on her sister Lindsay's nails. Their grandfather "Happy" is making sure they get it right:
And now daughter Lindsay is applying makeup to one of her twin nieces, Brianna. Doesn't every six year old need neon blue eye shadow?
Now it's twin Tori's turn for Sarah's nail art. This is serious business going on here.
And somewhere amidst all the beauty-making, there were some fun tattoos being applied:
It doesn't get any better than this - spending time with the family, doing silly little things together. Getting gorgeous.
Now, if I could only locate one of those chairs......
