The last winner of the first offer

The second winner of the first giveaway which is the blue linen fox that was not chosen in the first drawing for the blue fox which had a brown fox added and confused everyone but obviously not Susan because she knew what she wanted and chose the brown which left the blue which brings us back to where we started.  .....  Random chose Heartland Stitcher.  I will be emailing you soon and when I remember where I put the fox so I wouldn't misplace it, I will pack it.   Thank you once again to everyone who participated in the great 65 giveaway. 
 
My brother still doesn't get it.  He wanted me to sell this heavy little stool that he painstakingly painted a great blue/teal for $5.  I was going to age it and then see if a local shop was interested.  Well, I got carried away and decided I better just pay him and keep it myself.  He can't believe what I did to it after his perfect paint job and still doesn't understand that chipped paint and rust sells easier than perfect paint.  It was really nice and could have been a great accent with a little edge aging but it's too late now.  Mine baby.  I'll give him $10 for it.
For those of you interested in seeing the tat brows, here they are.  They appear very exact and intense for the first few days and will soften within a week.  I will go back in 4 weeks for touch up or adjustment if needed.  From the middle out, I had six hairs at most.  This is a method called Soft-tap which is gentler than the traditional buzzing needle.  Some cosmetic artists make heavy diagonal lines to replicate hair and they look pretty phony.  Others do microhairs and a powdery fill look.  If you are interested, make sure you see photos of their work.  This method will fade entirely in about 5-6 years but last forever if you have them touched up every two years or less.  When mine start softening I will be able to see the details, right now the ink is pretty heavy.
 
  Hope everyone that is dealing with wicked weather is safe. 
Enjoy your weekend.

Your brows look great, Marly! I am seriously considering having mine done too. Eyebrow wax and pencil only last so long throughout the day...no matter if they try to tell you they last for 24 hours....

My friend had her eyebrows done about 6 years ago...and honestly....they looked like someone had taken a black Sharpie and drew them on! It was shocking...but then she had them redone or lighted and they looked beautiful! Love your stool...well worth the $10

I'm catching up on blog reading. Loved seeing the hornbook trend you're in. Everything looks so pretty! Lucky winners! And happy 65? :D Your eyebrow tattoo brings back my mother. She drew her eyebrows on and they looked just like your new eyebrows! I've heard about this tattoo stuff. I don't have much left in the way of eyebrows either, but I just don't know if I want to go that route. I just go without eyebrows. lol!

Love your brows! I have been tempted to get mine done and you've inspired me! Was it very painful?

What a great little bench! Love it. My brother used to say that my decor looked like I dug it up in the back yard. He doesn't get it either.
LOVE those brows!! Fabulous!

Melody said...

That's interesting about the brows. I always learn something new from you, Marly. Thanks! I'm not at that place yet, but who knows... Congrats to those who won your drawings. I love how both pieces turned out.

THEY LOOK WONDERFUL...I had them done when we lived in Reno...Not Good. That was 16 years ago, but I still wear my banks very long. Not doing it again at this age...You get what you see, Me getting OLD.

Happy for you Marly.

Peace, Barb

What do brothers know?! The stool is Fabulous!! Congratulations to both winners!

Maggee said...

Huh? What? That was the most twisting and winding beginning sentence ever! And then tattooed eyebrows--I must live a pretty sheltered life as I had never heard of that before! But now that I see them, I think my younger daughter has these... My eyebrows have only been plucked twice in my life and that was enough, so I have plenty there!! :/

Your "new" eyebrows look so natural! I've always wanted to have the eyeliner tattooed but I'm too chicken!!!
