Polish My Life My Red Room and Nude Lace

Yes I am still very much enamored with Polish My Life! So far, I have been back to work for two days now and it's been difficult.  All I think about is my dad and how he is no longer here.  Still crying tons of tears.  I'm trying so hard to be ok with this, but I'm just not.

I'm sure you guys are tired of hearing all of this.  I'll try to talk about other topics.

Ever since I was a little girl, I've been fascinated by Laura Ingalls and her Little House on the Prairie. Oh yeah do I love that TV show.  I own the books she wrote and have read each of them several times.  Recently, I saw that there was to be published an actual true life autobiography, written by Laura Ingalls and I immediately preordered it.

Well that was over two months ago.  It was so popular, it sold out in its first printing and they've since done two more sets.  Yesterday, I finally got my copy.  It's a huge book, written like a textbook with footnotes and actual pictures of Laura Ingalls, Almanzo, the Owens (who on TV were the Olesons) etc.  I am in Prairie heaven! I will tell you more as I read it.  I am still getting through the back story on how the book came to be, that the manuscript was written when Laura was 60 and all long hand and with pencil.  I didn't know she lived to be 90.  Oh and the picture of Ma and Pa (Caroline and Charles) is hilarious.  As my whole life, Pa to me is Michael Landon the actor, not the real life guy from the mid 1800s with the whacked out long beard.

It's a surreal thing.  I can't wait to get to the actual life story.

Well, I'm pressed for time, have to get dressed, paint my nails and get my hair dyed so let's get to it shall we?

Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Polish My Life Nude Lace, My Red Room and Mundo Black.

I started with skittles.

How gorgeous is this red? See the amazing shimmer in it? I am in love!  Next I just did some dots and used tape.

Simple, but oh so awesome! I am really happy with how this came out.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
