Stella's got a New DO!

That really does sound like a movie sequel doesn't it??

(Stella before, above, and Stella after, below.)

I know, I know...her hair is a little mussed. She needs a hat or something. How 'bout this one?

Is it just me, or does she look like Madonna somehow??

They say blonds have more fun. Stella doesn't know yet if they do...she hasn't even left the house with her new hair till today, and she only made it to the front yard.
Not much fun yet...but what happens soon could break all her past "fun" records.
You know what I mean...the trip to Houston for market. She's never been to Houston. We have to get her out on the town... take her to a couple of the hot spots: dancing, the theater, fancy restaurants. (I'd love to see how that goes over.)
But I really don't know my way around that city...
Any suggestions? Keep in mind she only has two outfits. That's going to limit us a bit.

Soooo....I guess I'm really bored today. Sundays are usually kinda like that.

I was thinking that women with hot pink hair probably have even more fun than blonds do. Stella may go back to her former hair if things don't pick up soon.

I'm thinking I might look pretty darn good in hot pink hair...

This is Stella's new skirt. I'm making it into a pattern. It should be available in a couple of months. What do you think? I know you can't see it very well.

Profile shot...a little light dappled. So I'm not a great photographer.

This is my husband Hal with Stella.
I think he looks like a cardboard cutout of himself. Stella looks like the real person in the photo.
He told me he might like to date her. She's really easy to get along with, compared to me. Compared to anyone, actually.
I told him..."Go for it."

I've been really busy lately, and he's been feeling sorta left out.
Stella's always up for a good time. She's a great listener, she doesn't ever interrupt and talk about herself...doesn't try to be the center of attention, (although she always is). She's always free too. She doesn't sew or anything.

When he finds out she doesn't cook either, he'll probably move on.

Stella's the most fun I'm having today I think.
I'll be back to work tomorrow...

PS: Thanks, April for "springing" up my blog with a little Eden!

I'm pretty sure Hal is happy with the gal he's got Lila.

You really know how to make me giggle!

Dawn said...

He he... imagine that... it would be real quiet on a date...especially if it was my hubby who doesn't like to talk much... but then again.. Stella would have loads of admirers if she were out to dinner no doubt cos she looks GEORGOUS.. love the new do!

Love the skirt.... I'll buy a pattern- you know, when you get around to it ;)
I like Stella.... cause, blonds do have more fun ha!
K-what is up with that picture of Hal anyway? it's like there's this glow around him... celestial yes, angelic... hmmm I think you photo shopped him in somehow. if that's the case, I have a hot one of Gerard Butler you can photo shop into a few of mine ;) haha.
Love ya!
p.s. - I see it.... Madonna totally!

She looks fab! I live in Houston and will be at the show. The Houston Pavilion has some new resturants that are great (which are a few blocks from GRB)and hotels. House of Blues to name one : )

Have fun in Houston, Lila. I know you and Stella will get in to all kinds of adventures together :)

If Stella is going to Houston as a marketing assistant, she might like pink hair because it attracts attention. On the other hand, if she's gone to market before as a marketing assistant, and her hair was pink at that time, the blonde could be a nice change. Then people would know she's a gal who keeps up with the times. (I do have to ask... what's with her eyebrows? Standing next to Hubby, Stella's eyebrows are extremely noticeable features...)

LOLOLOLOLOLOL! Beautiful outfit on Stella! Keep up the great blog!

How much longer now 'til this skirt is out? I can't wait to make it.

Too funny..... I think you should rent out Stella! I know I would love to have her around my house!

DailyFamily said...

I love the skirt!!

Paisley and Polka Dots said...

You are a hoot! Love Stella! I'm a budding quilt pattern designer. I think you've inspired me to sew a boyfriend for Stella, perhaps resembling Richard Gere?! Then they can meet up at market twice a year if I ever get there! ;) You are so amazingly creative! Thanks!
