Living Graciously, Artfully, Frugally.

Consciously taking notice of the gifts each day places in our path.

My Darker Side.

I did it. I changed my hair color. Dark underneath, a bit lighter on top. The blonde was making me feel very monotone. Like I was a big blob of beige. Now I feel a bit more artsy...more fun.What do you think? How about some pink and blue? Just kidding, I'm not that brave.
Thanks for allowing me all of this self indulgence. A little makeover now and then is good for the soul.

Have a colorful Monday, P.
Pin It!

Looks great.... Makes you look younger!!
I too just got my hair cut. I went from hair to the middle of my back to above my collar! I love it. When it was long I wore it pinned up all the time so I figured I may as well have it shortened!!
Have a great Day!!
Love,
Marilyn

Pam, I think it looks fantastic...kind of edgy with a hint of drama queen! I bet Receipts is digging the new woman around the house. Just for fun, how about a little streak under the back...you know the kind that washes out.
BTW, I didn't realize your eyes were THAT blue! The new color really brings them out.

I REALLY like your new do, Pam. My hair is getting really gray, but I don't want to start dying it...I was a platinum blonde in high school and college (WAAAY back in the day) with black eyebrows...how attractive was that???? I MIGHT blog that sometime. Or not. Anyway, I just hate to start something that I know I will have to keep doing...

Stop by my blog...I have a good overview of the weekend's draft. You might enjoy it!

Again, LOVING your new look!

WOW! YOu look fantastic! Didn't think I'd like it that much when you talked of goiing darker but I really do! Now you've got me to thinking...but I've got too much gray to do natural with streaks. Guess I'll stay platinum for a while!
