Unconventional Headboards

I am about to embark upon a project, a curtain headboard project.  I have the smallest bedroom in the house and too much furniture as it is so I have no headboard or footboard. I have been trying to decide between a painted headboard and a curtain headboard.  I purchased a curtain panel tonight on clearance and and am going to give it a try.  I don't have a bedframe and only one panel so it may not loof this full or rich but these are some great inspirations for some not so conventional headboards.

What is your favorite?

Vanity Removed

I remember as a teen waking up very early before school to hot roll my hair... yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, what on earth are hot rollers? They are incredibly hot torture devices girls of the eighties used to use to beautify ourselves. I would sweat my butt off sitting in front of a fan waiting for my hair to set hoping my makeup didn't melt in the process.

Vanity? I suppose. Vanity seems to die along with age, or is it just me? Don't get me wrong, I still try to look nice. Perhaps it was the cancer and being bald. I am not sure but somewhere I have mellowed out a bit and don't mind so much what others think.

Our society puts so much pressure on us to conform to look a certain way.  It is sad really.

I recently took some medicine to reduce water gain in my ankles. Unfortunately, it absorbed the fluid that had been residing in my breast which had a quadrant of tissue removed from breast cancer seven years ago. Now I am totally lopsided and there is over a two cup size difference.

No worries right? I am alive. I am healthy.

Until bathing suit season comes...

See? Society. I am blessed. Period. Plain and simple. It doesn't matter to me and no one else should be looking to notice anyhow.
