Through the looking glass...
















Through the looking glass I see the many faces and moods of Robyn. For all my blogger friends and those who are lurking in the back ground, I have come forth. I have posted pictures of other's faces...it is high time you all have a face with a name! I have taken a artsy spin on just a simple photograph. I had fun and played and posted those that I thought provoked the essence of Robyn. What do you think?!
Ok...besides being pre-color treatment for my premature greying (which I have inherited from my dear father who is snow white), and only having the master bathroom mirror to work with, since I had no other person here to capture my images...lol! Still had major fun and I can't tell you how much I laughed. Thank goodness no one walked in to me laughing uncontrollably. 911 would have been called and the 5150 call would have gone out for sure.

**UPDATE: And for the 21 emails wanting to know and getting my eye color wrong! As much as I got a giggle out of the odd requests, I am truthfully glad no one asked for nude shots...LOL! Here you go. My eyes...lol, are green my friends!


With much love,

Hey Robyn,

Glad to see that you've finally bitten the bullet and put some photos of yourself up - and very arty ones they are too! Lovely to see what you look like, eventually!

Dear Robyn- Your hair is lovely! I am so gray that if I were to color it, when it starts to grow it would look like a skunk! I love your self portraits! Your inner beauty shines through and you look luminous! Happy Monday for heaven's sake! I am off to find Isabella and continue her adventure!

Good gracious girl... I love it! Thanks for telling me to check it out. Yeah, I couldn't have done this either... beautiful, my sweet girl!

I am also glad to hear that you had FUN doing it. Such an important thing!

meggiecat said...

Great Pictures! I tried mirror pics but the light wasn't good and I wasn't good so that was the end of that. You, on the other hand, look beautiful and have great lips.

Leah said...

WHAT a WONDERFUL post, Robyn. It is truly daring, I know. I've gone around about posting pictures of myself, and compromised on a back view. But it is so neat to get to put a face with the words. And you are absolutely beautiful.

cammyk said...

About near fell off my damn chair! FINALLY!!! Honey you're so beautiful. Your eyes are expressive, your lips are gorgeous and grey hair to boot! Yippie!!! Thanks for being brave and for thinking so much of us you decided to take the plunge. ;) I love the format too. Great idea ~ sorta like a photo booth, but in the bathroom. Of course I'm laughing.

I want to jump through the screen and give you a big old hug, but think only my head will fit. Just know that I love you to pieces.

One more thing. I read all the comments and they're amazing. What wonderful friends.

Love you sweetie,
Suze XO

CSI Seattle said...

Hey!!!!!! I'm running a bit late, but I made it.

Look at you and what a fun post! Best post of the year. Love it. And what an attractive lady you are. The next time I see Jim, I will bow down and tell him what a lucky man he is.

Good for you and look at the responses you are getting. You Rock!

Skeeter said...

Hi ya Robyn!

It was very brave and thanks for inviting me over! The images are really great dear. Now I will have to do something along these lines too. It only seems fair I suppose.

Wonderful pictures. You look great.

Best wishes,
Skeeter

INNER VOICES said...

great pics!!!! love em!!! it is indeed nice to put a face to the "name"... good on you!!! thanks for always stopping by!!!

Cora Lynn said...

those are freakin' awesome! i don't know how i inspired that, but boy am i glad! super fun and super beautiful. way to go.

Suzanne said...

Hi baby. Just read your comment on my blog and want you to know I love you so much. And hugs? Yes, how could I ever, ever forget. This was brave and I'm proud of you. Look what you recieved for such little effort. It's funny how just opening up generates this sort of response. And Brian's comment made me smile. Have we ever seen him use "!!!!!"? Nope! Too funny. That made my day and made me also realize we've come full circle. We all met on 1Pic and we're all still here. Seeing your photo today brought us closer together. We've been through so much since last year, yet here we all are, still adoring one another. As difficult as this year as been, I wouldn't change a single thing. I am so grateful for all of you and for 1Pic because he helped us find one another.

I love you and you're beautiful honey. Never doubt that.

XO

Naturegirl said...

Robyn first of all I named my daughter "Robin" love the name!
It's interesting how we all at one time or another "out" ourselves on our blog with our self portrait and then feel :liberated: ...
that's how I felt when I first "outed"
it's always nice to put a face behind the words and photos.
You have lovely eyes and the grey..well I for one let it all go grey..YUP no more color and I must say I look marvelous as a silver fox..so they say!I came in by way of Sandra's. :)NG

Julie said...

Great job and adorable photos! I do not like corasponding (sp??)with someone to whom I can not put a face with...it just creeps me out!

Junie Moon said...

You look positively beautiful! I've posted a picture here and there of myself but I'm always, always uncomfortable doing so.

ShutterSpy said...

It's nice to see you! :-D

I've done loads of self-portraits, but I'm not going to publish them.

It's good to be back.

I had no idea that there'd be sooo much catching up to do after the computer broke.

Must go to bed now. See you around! :-D

Suzanne said...

I do believe I'm #61! And there's Shutterspy. How wonderful! Was wondering what happened to him/her. Now we know.

Look how poopular you are!!! And to think, you were worried. See what happens when you open up. Magic.

Love ya honey,
Suze XO

P.S. RC is back from her cruise. Her posts are a hoot. Take a peek. Oh, and she posted at the Wild Onion. You might want to lend your voice! Holy crapper. Do you know how to help built a niche?

Leah said...

Suzanne, "poopular"?!

62 comments! Your gorgeous self is bringin' 'em out in droves!!!!

Robert said...

sarah said...

sarha

Suzanne said...

Leah, that is not a typo! Yup poopular! A running joke in our family, so thought I'd share the fun.

I do believe I'm #65. Robyn, if you responded to every comment your total will be 135. That is insane! Well stop throwing darts, eating skittles and drinking Lowenbrau over at the Wild Onion and focus girl. FOCUS.

And Sarah, is she naked too? Holy crap. I didn't catch that. I'll have to go back and enlarge the photos. Zack, where are ya baby???!! Free peep show.

Okay, I'll stop. Love you girly.
XO

Suzanne said...

Honey, where did your email go? I just read something over at Skeeters and want to know if you're okay. The "C" word scared the hell out of me. I'm going to go back through my email to find your address, if you find me first, please let me know you're okay. I felt complete panic. So please let me know if it's past or present.

Love you,
Me

Gypsy said...

Hi Robyn
I hope you won't mind, but I've added you to my blog roll. You are such a sweet lady and I have very much appreciated your kind thoughts.

LisaLaughs said...

Hey, you gorgeous gal!! These photos are lovely, and you should be proud at your awesome job of capturing a beautiful, inspiring and joyful creature!! Keep smiling, baby!!!

Hugs,

Random Chick said...

Hi Robyn!!!

Suzanne told me to visit and see the GORGEOUS photos of you. Yay!!! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'll definitely be one of your regulars now.

You're HOT!!!

RC

Suzanne said...

#70! Wow! I'm impressed. I think I'm going to put my real photo up and see if I get lucky too. ;)

Random Chick, how did you know Robyn was HOT? Did you watch the news girlie? It's about 100 degrees here already, so of course she's HOT! *Turns PPT around and head back over to The Wild Onion to make a management decision.*

Cecile said...

I guess a little late is better than never, hopefully. Sorry, been off having a pity party for myself this week and haven't been in the right frame of mind to blog. May still not be in the right frame of mind, but here I am. I think you are beautiful. It is so nice to be able to put a face with the name. Hope you have a wonderful weekend coming up.

Stacy's Shabby Shoppe said...

You are a brave soul for taking all of these pictures...and they are just LOVELY! I admire you for taking the plunge! What a great job!

Walker said...

I come here all the time looking for a new post, gezz. LOL
It's already hot here and this post is only making it hotter ;)

Randy said...

Robyn, I love you pictures. I could stare into your beauitiful green eyes for hours on end. XOXO Yummy

Suzanne said...

#75! Hurray for me. I could stare into your beautiful eyes all day too, but I gotta make a livin' baby!

XO

P.S. You still look as good as the day you posted. As fresh as a daisy. Did you use floral preservative?

Skeeter said...

Hi Robyn,

Gosh, I read through all of these postings and it made me so happy to see what Suzanne wrote. You know ... it sounds good, let's wander over to the Wild Onion Cafe and ... do all the things she said not to ... you know, like throwing darts, eating skittles and drinking Lowenbrau ... maybe another beer choice is on tap ... i hope!

Hezzy Magee said...

Ooh really creative, Robyn ^.^ you look really pretty too

LisaLaughs said...

Hey you!
I've nominated you for an award. Check out my blog to get the details!!
