SIDE VIEW’s WEEKEND THEME: CURLY BITS

Curly: curled, crimped, permed, frizzy, fuzzy, wavy, kinky, curling, looping, turning, twisting, winding, wreathing, twirling, coiling, spiralled, spiralling, corkscrew …

… twirly ribbons to be sewn on new pointe shoes …

… twisty new shoots weaving their way out of the soil to welcome Spring …

… loops of spaghetti sending up spirals of fragrant steam …

… a corkscrew unleashes a glass of wine with which to wind down the afternoon.

And – always – the fuzzy wave of happy memories of yesterday and the company of my beautiful, curly-haired friends …

      Thanks, Amy, I plan to 🙂

  2. nursemyra says:

    love the photo of the ballet shoes. Do you break your spaghetti up before serving? The strands don’t look very long

    1. theonlycin says:

      No, I don’t break it, no idea why it looks short – it isn’t 🙂

  3. SidevieW says:

    all wonderful curly bits 😉

    1. theonlycin says:

      Yes, planning a lazy day and a curl-up on the sofa for a long nap 🙂

  4. Oh my, your hair grows so quickly! Didn’t you just have it shaved the other day?
    Have a happy Sunday – I’m off to tune into the rugby.
    🙂 Mandy

      My hair and nails grow very fast, Mandy, enjoy the rugby, I am keeping an ear on it from the kitchen 🙂

    Lovely, Cindy! The ballet ribbons are beautiful… like the ribbon on gifts!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Yes, they are, adee, I’ve sewn them on and she’s busy breaking the shoes in – prepping for the first eisteddfod of the Concours de Ballet 2011. It’s a very busy time for her.

    What really special shots, i hope you enjoyed you curl up on the couch.. with a good book?.. c

    1. theonlycin says:

      I left the book and watched Masterchef Australia re-runs, it was sublime 🙂

    So glad that your day yesterday glistened with curly bits . . . like corkscrews. 😀

  10. Whilst feeling a little upset once a friend came and sat with me but instead of starting to council me he distracted me from my upset by starting a conversation about paperclips. He said, “If I say ‘paperclip’ what uses for it comes to mind? – anything goes.” Immediately, instead of thinking about my issue, I was searching my brain for ideas of what you can use a paperclip(s) for. Before long the upset was forgotten to be dealt with in a fresh perspective later. I thought that was so clever. It’s interesting how someone giving you something to focus on suddenly makes you mind see/think/smell/hear, etc. things that relate to that topic more as you search for it all around in ways you would/might never have otherwise. That’s what I like about the challenges that people write or snap about.

  15. Lovely, joyous post! You made me smile! Thank you!

    1. theonlycin says:

      You are welcome, Celia 🙂

  16. bluebee says:

    Corkscrew! How divinely vintage – not too many wiinebottles come with corks on this side of the world anymore. Love pointe shoes, but their beauty belies the agony they bring 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      She started working them in yesterday, her toes bled …

  17. gospelwriter says:

    Lovely curly bits, Cin – I yearn for beribboned pointe shoes just like those… although come to think of it, I doubt I could do much of anything with them. 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      She hangs the old shoes on her bedroom walls, Ruth, maybe I should take a photo 🙂

  18. Tandy says:

    looks like the wine course was a lot of fun!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Oh, it was beyond anything I could have dreamed 🙂

  19. earlybird says:

    Nice take on the prompt. Love those new ballet shoes – they look full of promise!

    1. theonlycin says:

      She does her RAD exam tomorrow 🙂

    Why does the lady in the middle look familiar?

    1. theonlycin says:

      Hehehe, Our Linnie The Biker Spider Lady 🙂

  21. bandsmoke says:

    Inspired interpretation of Sidey’s theme 🙂 you are looking very fab by the way – locks are showing face with a vengeance!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Time to get shorn of them again 🙂

  22. Tammy says:

    Love the shoe photo and those curly girls.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Love my curly girls 🙂

  23. slpmartin says:

    What a lovely representation of the day!

    1. theonlycin says:

      I was a special one 🙂

  24. SuziCate says:

    One of my aversions is wine without a cork…yeah I know I’m just going to pop it anyway but still. I refused to even buy wine without corks until about two weeks ago I found a new wine by a winery I love, and this type comes with a screw cap….I bought it anyway. want the verdict? It was fabulous, yes even without the cork! Lesson here (to myself): try new things, you might find you like them after all!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Corks will soon be a thing of the past, there is very little cork left in the world 😦

  25. Tokeloshe says:

    Well done!

    Love the ballet shoes the most of course 😉

    1. theonlycin says:

      Not surprised, Tok 😉

  26. All those lovely photos, each one suffused with a differed shade of joy. Here, curly = happy 🙂

  27. johnlmalone says:

    those loops of spaghetti reminded me of an article I’m reading in the new yorker about entomophagists, people — and apparently 80% of the world are — who treat insects as mini-livestock. Much of that go on over there?

    1. theonlycin says:

      Good grief, never heard of it. But the blondie in the bottom photo keeps spiders and scorpions as pets!

  28. johnlmalone says:

    I hope for their sakes — that is, the spiders and scorpions —- the fad, though it us much more than a fad if 80% of people do it, never catches on over there 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      She also has snakes, bearded dragons, and miniature hedgehogs … amongst others 🙂

  29. The Hook says:

    Great post! Lots of twists and turns!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Yes, all of them happy ones 🙂

  30. Naomi says:

    Love this, Cindy…a sensory treat from start to finish. And now I’m lusting after spaghetti bolognaise!
