I guess this is kind of a reconstructed thing. At my favorite thrift store at home, I found this giant bag of old plastic curlers like they use at beauty salons for perms. This was like three years ago! They reminded me of when I used to go with my grandma when she would get her hair done Smiley So I brought them with me across three states when I moved, and they've just been sitting around waiting to get used in something weird. So when I joined the Random swap and learned my partner liked weird things, it was a perfect match!





The little piece of wood was taken out of a wooden box I used for something else. The pattern was already there, but I painted over it with acrylics that matched the curler colors.

I thought the pattern of the curlers made it end up looking kind of Southwestern. And I still have a billion more of them!!! Thanks for looking.

I'm not attached to your world, nothing heals, nothing grows... we used to love ourselves, we used to love one another.

life is no cabaret- we don't care what you say, we're inviting you anyway, you mf'ers, you'll sing someday!
