9 different colors, special designed flowers...


So happy over this...

It's not a secret that I like brunettes...
So why those pictures
of the most famous blond of them all?
To start with Norma Jeane is brunette...
Let's not forget this fact...
Two I just read this....
"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure.
I make mistakes, I am out of control and
at times hard to handle.
But if you can't handle me at my worst,
then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
- Marilyn Monroe
what's not to love about it ???
