I Dream of Renny with the Light Brown Hair

...floating like a vapor on the summer air. I hear her melodies like days gone by, sighing 'round my heart like the fond hopes that die..."

Well, she doesn't exactly have light brown hair, it's actually light red, but I do like that song.

I have been thinking a great deal lately about Yren's red wig. For a long time now I have preferred her dark one, first because my original idea was for her to be dark-haired and second because I liked the hairline of the dark one better. The way her red one fits, it gives her a much higher forehead and I think she looks prettier with a little bit lower one.

But for this set of pictures, I tilted the wig a little forward and I do think she looks very pretty in it. My sister says you can tell that her face was painted especially for that color of wig. There might just be a way I can anchor the wig so it will fit more forward all the time.

Will have to study a bit to find good lip colors for her. The one she's wearing in this picture is on the violet side. I've seen fashion pictures of redheads with violetish lip color and like it very much, but when I try it on Yren I'm not so sure. I try brownish/gold on her here. Requires more thought and experimentation...

Home From Vacation!

We're safely home and Yren is safely home, and another golden summer is passing by... Soon we will celebrate Yren's one-year birthday. Or maybe we should say her one year anniversary of coming home to me, since it is rather odd to think of her as a one-year-old!

We had a fantastic time while we were away. Since this is Yren's blog, I don't want to fill it up with too many non-ED posts, but here is one scene, anyway, from our visit to the Bronx Zoo. Soon I'll be putting more pictures on my other blog if you want to see them.

Summer Vacation

We're off on Summer Vacation 2010, headed to the place so great they named it twice. That's right--we're going to Paw Paw.

No, just kidding, we're going to to New York, NY to visit my daughter. We have serious shopping to do at the Strand and maybe the fabric stores in the fashion district and definitely Kinokuniya. As for the boys--well, they are going to visit the new Lego store at Rockefeller Plaza and play with remote control boats at Central Park and I don't know what all.

Yren is not accompanying the expedition--she has gone to visit some friends of mine who are giving her their guest room. We brought her most comfortable chair along, plus her knitting, so she can sit placidly and watch the birds at the feeders outside her window. I could tell she felt perfectly at ease with these friends and content to bide with them awhile--she must have felt they admired her sufficiently.

Now I must go and finish packing!
