Butterflies are Free

No really. Peenee our receptionaire is also an amateur entomologist who kills hundreds of butterflies every August. So, in an effort to cull her collection, she'll pin one on every customer. Today only.

It's coming, the first week of August!

Every year, during the first week of August, Twinsburg, ohio, southeast of Cleveland, holds its Twin Days Festival.  The town is literally over run with, you guessed it, people who have shared a womb.  You thought I was going to say twins, didn't ya.  I avoided it because the Festival really is for twins, triplets, etc. and so on, and their families.

And then there are the matching outfits!  Matching combovers, too.

All we know about this image is that the men are named Richard and Ernest, and they came from Virginia in 1993 to the first Twinsburg festival.  They decided to pose with these women.  

I so want to meet these people, because they are expressing themselves in a fashion that speaks to their need to express themselves.  And they aren't wearing the usually golf shirts and shorts that most people in "The Ohios" seem to live in during the summer.

So you have about a week to get to Ohio and see things like this without benefit of drinking too much or getting conked on the head.

opposable thumb(s). kind of two for one


The first love of my life

The woman styling in this image from the late 1960s is Cookie's first love of his life.  Her name was Leatrice and she was a structure in my rudderless childhood life.  I adored her - I loved her either as much as my mother, or more so. Leatrice was in our employ, and I think she stayed with us through thick and thin because she was truly worried for my safety at the hands of my maniac father.  When she died when I was nine, it left a hole in my life that took years.

I think she deserves a place in the HHoF because her hair, which she took great pride in was always done at Andre Duval Salon, at Severance Center in Cleveland, Ohio.

Leatrice worked for other families as well, and I am quite sure that she was as beloved by them as she was and still loved by me.  She was the type of person who's heart was expansive, and didn't suffer fools gladly.

We've had some posts featuring some Burlesqueish hair, but Leatrice deserves to join our Bouffant and Fashionable League here at the Hair Hall of Fame.
