My Beautician is Martha Stewart

Here in Smalltownland I visit my beautician for my monthly coif and she does a bang up job.....every time. Not only is she famous for her hair skills she is also the quintessential gardener. This is just a mere peek at her skills.






Her beauty shop is in her home and each spring I look forward to her garden, as do many other people.




She dispenses garden advice for free and the inside of her home is just as fabulous as the outside. She is her own Martha Stewart.




At my latest visit she counseled me on my paint choices for some summer projects.





Yes, she owns her own paint samples.....





Somehow I doubt she will actually do the painting for me.

  2. Great to have friends like this...Talented friends are always welcome at my place..
    Free advice is the BEST...She may start charging if you decide to drop in each week for a bang-up job in order to get her Free gardening tips!
    Have yourself a terrific weekend...
    Blessings..

  4. I love having people in my life who know what I want to know! What a great resource, and it looks like she could give anyone a couple starts if they wanted to try their hand at gardening!

  5. I loved her baskets too! Up here, I could tend to them all summer and I don't think they would get that big. I wish I had a keen gardener to learn from close by.

  8. She gets the grand prize for gardening for sure. I'm amazed each spring...somehow she outdoes herself every year. (I always have to check on which book she's reading as well.)

  9. Oh, how I wish I had a green thumb and could produce a garden like that! I love the fountain. But, I DO own my own paint sample book. My dad gave me one a couple years ago. Of course, then Porter had to go and create a whole new one so mine is now outdated. :(

  13. Constance - I should have mentioned that she is a voracious reader as well. I always check her current book and she gives me great suggestions.

  14. As a former hairdresser myself, I must say, we all love color and creating with it! Great to have a friend like her to bounce off ideas:)

  15. I love all those ferns in the hanging baskets! It must be a lot of work keeping them alive throughout your winters!

  16. This must transform the "chore" of a coif visit into an enjoyable experience.

  22. Wow, are you ever lucky! I wish I had a beautician/gardener/Martha Stewart clone as a friend! But I only get my hair cut twice a year, I'd have to start going more often. LOL
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    PS. I'm going to add your blog as one of my FAVES on my blog.. I just love yours. :-)
