WELCOME TO ~~FOR HEART AND HOME~~

Welcome to my blog ~For Heart and Home~. Thank you to my dear friend Linda from New York who took the pictures I sent her and made this beautiful banner for me. I visualized what I wanted it to look like and she made it happen. That is my sister and I as youngsters and yes, that is the home I grew up in during the 40's and 50's. Right about now, you are all probably saying, my goodness she is old. I am vintage, just like fine old lace. Thank you also to my good friend Debbi, from Oregon who answered questions non stop while I was trying to navigate the workings of the blog world. What is so wonderful is that friendships can reach across the miles and even tho we have never seen each other in person - through the wonders of the computer, we have developed that bond. Also, a big thank you to my good friend Mona also from New York, who often helps me after I have totally screwed something up on the computer. I feel very Blessed to have you all as my friends. Thank you and I hope everyone enjoys my blog. I know I will.

ALEXANDRA'S HAIR - LABOR OF LOVE FOR LOCKS OF LOVE




I thought I would share this story with you today as I am very proud of my granddaughter and her desire to share with others. She has decided to grow her hair really long in order to donate it to Locks of Love. They are a non profit organization who make wigs for children and adults who have either lost their hair through cancer treatment or alopecia.

WHAT IS LOCKS OF LOVE?

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children. The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.


Alex has the most beautiful hair with natural highlights. The hair has to be in it's natural state, not having used any chemicals on it. It has to be at least 10" long so Alex is growing it fairly long as she doesn't want a short hairstyle when she is done cutting it. People often stop Alex when she is out and about and simply comment on what beautiful hair she has. I agree and am so proud that she has decided to give somebody a chance at a gorgeous wig. If you would like to comment and give Alex encouragement - I am sure she would appreciate it.

I once gave to Locks of Love. I had hair down to my waist and decided it was time for a change and I wanted to give to this charity, because my mom had lung cancer and lost all of her hair.

What a loving and unselfish thing to do.
