Octocurler

Yes, this evil looking machine resides at my house. If you want to know why, you can find out here. Here's why I'm featuring it today: I've been on a clearing-out/reorganizing-my-past kick as of late, and today I came across a letter I wrote to Mom and Dad shortly after moving to Denver. It was a card actually, the one you see clipped to the "octocurler" (actually a permanent wave machine, if I'm not mistaken — Supreme Model M by Eugène, Ltd.), featuring a brave young soul getting her hair curled by just such a contraption. To read more about my recent fascination with the past (and, Amber, to see the scrapbook page featuring the pink espresso machine), please check out Ruff Edge Design.

My word, there is something about that contraption that is so beautiful. Does that sound weird?:) As soon as I saw your post, I just loved it. & I love the story. Thanks for making it so easy to link to your scrapbook page:) LOVE IT!!

You like the contraption? Want it? I have two other machines that go with it. You can see them here: http://www.sienafallsmedia.com/callandresponse/notion/ I really don't know what to do with them, (but I'm open to suggestions and offers). : )
