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.

This is so funky, I bet she loves it!

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!
