Some Me Time

I don't work on Mondays so that's usually my day to run errands and get stuff done, but sometimes it's just my day to enjoy myself.
Yesterday I did just this, I started with a haircut.
About a year ago my stylist started to talk to me about growing my hair out, I've always been the kind of girl that is antsy pants to always change my hair, but I decided to go for it and now my hair is the longest it's ever been
Please forgive the stupid look

I had to include this one just because my face is even weirder

After my haircut I went shopping for a while and bought some springy clothes. I also picked up the beautiful hair pin I bought to wear at the wedding.

I found this pin a couple of weeks ago but it was missing a couple of stones so the antiques dealer I bought it from fixed it for free!
I forgot how lovely it was, I'm so excited to wear it in 7 months!

While I was at the antique mall I stumbled upon something I decided I had to have.

Yep, that's a box of letterpress type. It weighs 40 pounds and I don't know what we'll do with them but I had to buy it. Right now we've set up about half of the box alphabetically and will finish the rest tonight.
What would you use them for?

When I got home I was excited to see that I had gotten a letter from my pen pal that Nicole from my teacups in peony set up.
The card says "Take your time for being happy and enjoy every second of your life"

My pen pal is named Belinda and she is from Austria and I'm pretty excited to continue our correspondence. When I was in 2nd grade I had a pen pal from France for one letter but she wrote in French and I didn't know a speck of it so that didn't work out too well.

What's your favorite way to spend a day alone?

Those letters are cool. If you have any smaller ones you could make pendants (especially with "E"s. Everyone has always sold out of E necklaces)!

I love your hairpiece. Und ich liebe die Karte (that's probably all wrong).

PS I'm having a giveaway on my blog if you want to enter.

I'm totally with you with the antsy pantsy hairstyles. I've always had short hair because it was so easy to change... but now i'm growing mine out, and it's tough. Love your layers in the back photo...

Oh, and those letters are awesome!!!
