Lighthouse Has A Human Hair Cross

While visiting the Laquana Beach Lighthouse, a volunteer explained to us that the Shadow Box Cross display was created with ………human hair.


Apparently, this is an old tradition brought over from England. Since 1980, I have visited England on many occasions, and can swear, on a bible, that I have never, ever, seen hair crosses nor hair flowers during any of my visits. 

However, after much thought, I have decided that this is a tradition I should pursue. Instead of crying and worrying about all of the hair on my pillow, bathtub, floor, I think you get it, (ah menopause) and sweeping and tossing it into the garbage, I am going to make hair flowers and crosses for Christmas presents. Let me know if you would like one!
