pretty: masks

Number one, I wish it was socially acceptable to wear pretty masks on days that aren't Halloween. I don't know why, I just like them! Number two, I was having one of those wild hair, wild eyebrows, wild everything days, and I think a mask would have helped!

Now on to the exciting news... I decided that when I had 100 followers, I'd do another giveaway. Yesterday afternoon I had 99, and by the time I went to bed, I had 102, so THANK YOU! I'll be introducing the giveaway on Saturday, so be sure to check back and enter. This will be for followers only! My way of saying thanks, folks!

  1. HURRAY for 100 followers! congrats!
    and i love the mask photos! how fun it would be to see people drinking coffee or filling up on gas all wearing masks! it would put a smile on my face!

  2. When the auto shut-off didn't work on the gas pump today and spewed all over the place, I wish I had a mask so everyone wouldn't have seen me blushing!

  3. I think you should start the trend of wearing masks on non-halloween days! I'm soooo for it!!

    And congrats on the followers!!!!!

  4. Posey Bird and I are both delighted that you have (over) 100 followers and hope that oneday we might have a post exclaiming a similar joy! We also agree that this is a wonderful collection of masks... We do wear masks other than on halloween around this house (mr. man is a puppeteer)!

    .......and the feathered one!

  5. Congrats on the followers! Very exciting.

    I've always wanted to go to a masquerade party, the kind where you have a gorgeous ball gown and a mask covered in sparklies and feathers...but I don't think those are very common these days, and if they are, then somebody needs to send me a freakin invite ;)

  6. Congratulations on 100 followers!!
    I would definately support mask wearing in public especially on Blah days.

  7. looks like I am number 103! It's good to be here!

  8. You guys are right, it's time to make mask-wearing an everyday thing!

    Kjrsten, I'm so happy to have you! :)

  9. I love those masks, but I have to admit they kind of freak me out a little too!

  10. have you ever seen Labyrinth? I have always wanted to go to a masquerade ball and dance with David Bowie.

    so i would be game with the trend.

    congrats to your 100+ followers! i knew from the moment i met your blog it wouldn't be long.

    you're just likeable :)


  11. i love the mask idea.

    i knew you would get 100+ followers sooner rather than later... when i found you and your beautiful blog i was shocked that you didn't have 500+!

    so excited about the giveaway!

    and i was bummed that didn't pick you for mine... darn!


  12. I loved this post!
    I have the zebra and the bunny masks hanging up in my living room- -my roommates and I play with them on occasion!
    Anywho, wonderful post- -Man, I just love your blog!

  13. Congratulations on the followers. I love masks too - I posted some on my blog yesterday!

    The only problem with wearing masks (apart from poor peripheral vision) is if you walk into a bank or a convenience store. Could get very messy.

  14. I totally agree with you! My interest in masks started with Audrey Tatou's Zorro mask in Amelie, and from then on I have been pouncing at the chance to make masks! The recent one was for my friend who joined a beauty pageant.

    Love the third pic, oversized masks are awesome! :)

  15. hahah. i dont think id be able to leave my house if people wore those masks...

    perhaps id be down for those fancy mardi gras masks though.

  16. I love masks; it makes me think of Breakfast at Tiffany or Alice in Wonderland. it is so playful and fun. I love the carnival in Venice where people wear elaborated masks; it is so mysterious. Have a good day!
    I love giveaway. This is a great idea.

  17. very cool masks!

  18. Congrats on the followers!! I love the mask idea...we should have a pretty mask day and all randomly wear pretty mask... ha might be fun. I am in the process of making a pretty Saintes mask for one of my friends. She is having eye surgery and wants a pretty mask for the superbowl!!!


  19. GREAT!! I have 96, I have been hoping to hit the 100 mark. Congrats.

  20. I also love masks. Every year I do a project with my students where we create double-sided masks: one side to display the face we show to the world, the other side to display the real face we hide on the inside. You can buy cardboard masks from the Oriental Trading company (a good place for teachers and otherwise crafty people).

    Congrats on the 100+ followers! :)

  21. I want that raccoon mask. I always wanted one as a pet when I was a kid...forget dogs and cats :)


I'd love to hear what you think!
