I had so much fun visiting _Eshaverbooks in Savannah.
I met wonderful people and enjoyed signing books.
I also took time to tour the city ...
It is a beautiful place filled with history and ghost stories. I took a fantastic tour with _Savannah Trolley Tours. And we went to get the world famous "Leopold's" Ice Cream.
Our tour guide -- "Big E" -- was really charming and informative and FUNNY. That's because he is also a standup _comedian.
Also, I ate this. That is a deep-fried soft boiled egg on a spaghetti squash salad. Thank you, Southern Chefs! This was at _The Grey.
Definitely eat the The Grey. Actually, eat everywhere in Savannah. I can't wait to go back!
In my quest to find the last remaining Goody Stay Tight Mock Tortoise 3-inch Barrettes, I did find another option. And it works!
I have LOTS of hair, and this holds it. It looks good, too, I think. It is called a Goody Ouchless Flex Barrette. I got it at Shoprite. Here's what the package looks like.
It is, in fact, ouchless. HOORAY!

I don't like that too much.
I'd like to point out that though they have discontinued the barrettes, they still feature them prominently on the barrette page of their website. As if, in fact, they still make them. You can even click on them to find out "where to buy" them.
But now we know that answer is ... nowhere. You can't buy them at all.
If you want to contact Goody yourself ... email@example.com. And thank you Julie, for suggesting that link on ebay that has a rare package of them. I might just go for it!
Do you know where I can buy these barrettes?
They are made by Goody. They are, to be precise, the Goody Classics Staytight Barrettes in 3-inch size. You can find them on Amazon or other sites, but when you go to order them, they are out of stock.
I think they are not making them anymore.
I am desperate, because they are the only thing that can hold my hair.
I am not the only desperate gal with lots of hair, because the Goody page is full of comments from other women who want these barrettes.
Please contact me if you know where to get them. Otherwise, this could happen.
Or even worse ... this.
Several years ago, I made my son curtains for his bedroom. I neglected to measure properly ... and I blogged it about that here. I eventually did get the curtains right, but I never did line them, so they are not ideal for the bedroom of a teen that likes to sleep in.
See? A lot of light seeps through.
Yes, his bed is unmade. No need to discuss it.
Anyhoo,I have been wanting to buy some fabric and line the curtains to make it darker in the morning. I have been debating what kind of a "look" I should go for, and should I make a border and yada yada. But I never had the time to even shop for the fabric, let alone design anything.
Then I stopped in at Christmas Tree Shops, (for something else, which they didn't have) and in the clearance bin I found some navy curtain panels. They were $3.99 each. You can't even buy fabric off the bolt for that, and the quality was good, so I bought them.
Here's where the shortcut comes in. Rather than actually sew the lining to the curtains, I realized that the panels came with tab tops that could be threaded through the curtain rod, alternating with the rings of the curtains.
Voila! And the way I did it, the lining actually looks like it's bordering the curtain, giving it a lovely layered look. If I do say so myself.
I did have to hem the linings to be the right length, hence the other kind of "short cut." Ha ha.
I am thrilled about this!! Move over, Joanna Gaines!
Best of all, my son said "I like them."
