Last night after work I headed out to Salem to meet [livejournal.com profile] bryghtrose for dinner and knitting group. We went back to her place and watched some Law & Order and did some more knitting before bed.

Then today we headed out to explore Salem a bit and visit the Peabody Essex Museum for the exhibit on Tā moko - the traditional facial tattoos of the Māori in New Zealand. It was really a very interesting group of photos and stories. I was especially interested when I noticed and then read about the prevalence of the spiral shape - I like spirals too!

We looked around at another temporary exhibit about weddings which showcased quite a few very interesting dresses and showed traditional garments and items from weddings in other cultures as well. Some of the most impressive were a huge wedding "cake" made entirely of frosting, a beautiful quilt made from pieces of wedding dresses, and the Korean wooden wedding duck.

We also saw assorted glass, maritime stuff, teapots, and the most gorgeous Japanese moon bed which I wanted for my very own. Combine that with hanging out in downtown Salem a bit and you have a very successful Saturday. :)

By special request...

On Friday the 13th I cut my hair and donated it to Locks of Love - [livejournal.com profile] theotheramanda requested before and after pics, so here goes:

Long hair:

Short hair:

I like my hair short a lot, actually. I like it long too, but probably not that long. I'm debating about whether to grow it out to donate again (this was my second time if you don't remember) but I'm thinking I might stop it when it gets to about shoulder-length.
