Before I bust into action, I want to share with you some pieces of my day.

Before we ran off to see a children's play this morning, I snapped some "before" pictures of my hair on a whim in anticipation of this evening's visit to the salon. I'm not a high-maintainence hair gal (no products and just the brush), but there comes a time when I desperately need a hair pick-me-up. I started feeling that way weeks ago.
So, yeah, I tried to snap a before picture. Goodness - this mirror trick is hard! I won't show you all the shots of me looking like a dear in the headlights. This was the best I could do folks...
After lunch I brought my mama her new pillow! Here's where it lives in her entryway. Her house is a wee bit more formal than mine. When Brandon and I got married we started off copying this style. It's funny to us now that our house is so colorful and Ikea-esque!
Above my mom's chair area is this stained glass that inspired the colors of her pillow. I really should have taken a picture of the glass beforehand as my colors are a bit off, but it works in the room. Really it does.
I was planning on finishing this pillow with binding, so I put in an envelope back rather than an invisible zipper. But, my mom and I decided today that it really looks best the way it is. Sometimes simple is good. My favorite detail is the decorative stitching along the outer edge of the half dresden plate. It's a design idea I've seen on many a wonky star, dresden plate, etc. around blogdom. And, I love it every time!
My husband took an "after" shot at my request. So, here is my haircut in all it's post-cut glory. And, look, no sleeves! Yes, it was above 70 degrees here in South Carolina today. So very odd, but welcome. Tomorrow we are supposed to go work on the garden.
