Thing No. 10: It's big and pink...
It isn't immediately obvious in this picture what you're looking at...I mean, besides a really big pink flower. And that's what it is! It's a really big pink flower...that happens to be a barette. It's about half the size of my daughter's head, and it just makes me giggle to see her wear it.
We stopped at the "big" Michael's (across the state line, in New York state) and found that the huge gerbera daisies were on sale for just $1.09! I held up a few against Ming Wai's face and picked the color that looked the best...and, by that night, she had a new barette. Snazzy, yes? (I promise to try and get some better pictures later so you can actually see the rest of Ming Wai's head. We had an unexpected day of good weather today, and I was too busy to take advantage of the great light with my camera!)
(Full disclosure - it's really heavy, for a barette. The only way I can keep it in her hair is to first put a rubber-backed elastic headband on her, and then clip the daisy to her hair and the headband together. The rubber keeps it in place. Someone suggested that I stick a few small pieces of rubber shelf liner between the barette sides. I might try that as soon as I get my hand on some rubber shelf liner!)
