Salon • Kawaii • JellysteemCreated with Sketch.

in ulog •  4 months ago 
My sister-in-law, who is staying with me a while, needed her hair trimmed. So, we went to a hair salon recommended by a neighbor, as I don't have a regular stylist. I looked at the décor in the place while she was getting her hair styled and saw several interesting things.

There were wooden bookcases, constructed of very dark wood, filled with candles, aluminum stars, and all sorts of nicknacks. The prettiest item, and most fascinating, was a little "planter" decoration on the wall. It was little more than a shallow dish with some artificial plants in it, but was a unique and lovely decoration. It really looked outstanding from a distance, and I thought at first it was something sealed in a round glass frame.

We saw a car in the parking lot that had a row of adorable little kawaii stuffed creatures on top of the dashboard. Four of them are shown in the photo, but the full line spanned all the way from one side of the car to the other... 😁

We also got some food while we were out and then went by a small natural foods market where I have bought local honey for years. We browsed among the items they had, and my sister-in-law selected some all-natural ginger beer and we each bought a tiny jar of jelly — Crabapple for me (one of my favorites from long ago, but haven't had it in years) and Mayhaw for her (as she wanted to try it). Of course, we will share what was bought.

For those who might not know, the Crabapple (genus: Malus) is the fruit of a wild apple tree that grows in this area. The fruits are very small, much smaller than cultivated apples, and rather tart but delicious. The Mayhaw is the fruit of the Hawthorn tree (genus: Crataegus) that ripen around May of each year, thus: May + Hawthorn. The berry-sized fruits are also somewhat tart and very good in jellies, the same as Crabapple, but with a different taste.

This is a fun post, @thekittygirl. The stuffed creatures are so cute. I don’t have a hair stylist either. I’ve been doing my own hair for about 30 years. Possibly longer. I wonder how much money I’ve saved!

The little 'planter' is neat. Have some epoxy magnets like that all with various tree art. I take some photos if ya wanna see em🥰

I haven't seen crabapples in this area for years. They do make nice jelly.

A trip to the salon. Great outing. However, I've been doing my own for quite some time now. Just don't want to deal with the crowded salons waiting for hours. And the talking. I already know what the conversations will be about before I enter. That's why I just decided not to put myself through it any longer.

OMG! Mayhaw Jelly. An oldie, but goodie. A staple to be enjoyed with homemade biscuits in the country. What a treat. Brings back memories of picking some up alongside the highway too in small Farmers' Markets already canned for the winter.
