A message from Beau

Pin It Now!

Cindy's not feeling well. She has a really bad cold and she also had an accident with a butane candle lighter on Friday. She was refilling the lighter with butane fuel and when she was done, she clicked the lighter to see if it would work but she didn't know that some of the fuel had dripped into her kitchen sink and there were a lot of fumes so when she clicked the lighter it exploded into a huge fireball. It could have been so much worse. She burned her hands and her singed her bangs, eyebrows and eyelashes. It's amazing she didn't burn her face because the flames shot up into her face! She has really short eyelashes now....do they grow back? If not, we'll have to get her some fake ones! She went to work today even though she's not feeling well because of her cold and the blisters on her fingers. I wanted her to stay home but she wouldn't listen to me.

Oh my Godness!!! It's a miracle she didn't burn herself more. Of course it's bad with the things that happened, but she could have burnt her fact more and that's not nice at all. Hopefully both she, and you, recover soon.
Hope you're feeling better tomorrow.
Love Elzie

Oh, dear! I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well, but very glad you weren't hurt any worse in the lighter incident. I can confirm that eyelashes DO grow back. I once singed mine off on one eye. It looked kind of funny for awhile, but I don't think it took them too long to come back. Take care of yourself, sweetie!

Oh my! That is so scary. I've had one explode in my face too. Luckily mine was nearly out of fluid and it just blew up into a million pieces. Hope you get to feeling better.

I am new to your adorable site and check up now every day. I knew something was wrong when you hadn't posted in a while. What a scary thing to have happen, and hope you feel better soon. I, too can assure you that eyelashes grow back, only mine pulled out with my eyelash curler. It looked ridiculous for a couple weeks, but thank goodness they grew back. Such are the consequences for beauty (or trying to have it). . .in the home and around!! I look forward to your inspirations, soon.

Bless your heart! Will be praying for a quick recovery for you.

Adrienne said...

Oh my goodness, Beau! She wouldn't stay home and let you take care of her? I'm so glad you let us know what happened and that she will be OK - it was a miracle that she wasn't hurt worse. When she comes home from work today please tell her I am praying for her to feel better and heal quickly. And tell I said that she should listen to you next time you give advice. You're one smart dog! ~Adrienne~

linda t said...

Oh my gosh! Yes, it could have been worse... but sooo sorry that happened to you.
A couple weeks before my wedding, my soon-to-be husband was lighting a grill and the same thing happened and it singed his very long eyelashes. So what did he do? He took my hair cutting scissors (I had just cut his hair) and went in the bathroom and cut the singed part off! But thank God they grew back!

Nicki said...

Oh my goodness!! Bless your heart! I hope you get to "feeling" better soon!! I'm so sorry that happened, but thank goodness it wasn't worse!

Shari said...

Beau, not only are you cute as a button, you must be extremely smart to type Cindy's post for her today. Bet you didn't even need to use the Spell Check. Are you good in the kitchen too, Beau? I bet some homemade soup would make her feel better.

Please extend my wishes to Cindy for a speedy recovery from both her burns (scary!) and her bad cold. One or the other would be bad enough but the two things at the same time is just too much! Maybe you can convince her tonight that she should stay home for a day or two to recuperate.

a pink-bee said...

Oh no-poor cindy. Hope you get over your cold soon. And the burns heal. Yes, eyelashes grow back(a eyelash curler took off some of mine once)-it took forever but they did grow back !
Take care- hope you can rest some. Take care of Cindy- Beau !

Cindy, good heavens. I think eyelashes grow back. I am glad you were able to tell Beau all about it so he could tell us.

Oh my goodness! Beau, thanks for updating us, and tell Cindy that I hope she's feeling better very soon! (And that DH just confessed that the napkins are still in his car. Grrrrr. Tomorrow!)

Cindy~
I'm glad you are okay. Goodness that's scary.

bj said...

Oh, Cindy...I just had a feeling something wasn't quite right with your world. You don't go that long without posting unless something is going on.
I am so glad your face wasn't burned and, yes, eyelashes do grow back. In the meantime, a nice pair of faux ones might help your feelings a little! So sorry for you to go thru this but thankful all is going to be ok.
hugs, bj

Janet said...

Cindy,
Get well soon. I am so afraid of the refillable lighters and now I know why. Take care,
Janet

Nan said...

Thanks, Cindy, for stopping by my new blog. You so inspire me. I followed you here from RMS and I so enjoy watching you make beautiful pieces from things that some people would pass up.Can't wait to see your new business. :)

Carousel222 said...

Cindy, I'm sorry you aren't feeling well, and about your accident with the lighter. I'm glad you weren't more seriously injured. Maybe we should all stick with using disposable lighters! Take care of yourself, and snuggle up with Beau and get some rest. My prayers are with you.

Mary said...

OMG, how scary for you! I guess you're lucky it wasn't a whole lot worse, but it still sounds awful. I'm sorry you've got a cold as well, and I hope you will soon be feeling better.

And Beau is so cute!
xoxo,
Mary

Brenda said...

Oh my gosh, Cindy! I'm so glad to hear that your accident wasn't worse. Take care of yourself :)

Debbie P said...

Cindy, I am so sorry to hear about your accident. I hope that you heal perfectly, very soon.

Anonymous said...

Oh Cindy I'm so sorry to hear this. Your eyebrows will grow back. In my very young days I smoked (a lot) and was so very cool I used the gas range to light my cigs. May I say more? I didn't look too cool for a while and that ended that stage ha ha. I'm so glad you didn't burn your face. I'm sure that took the starch out of you. Hope your feeling better.
Best,
Kathy

Erin~~The Classy Rabbit~~ said...

Hi Cindy,
I discovered your blog through Penny over at Lavender Hill Studio.
I'm so sorry to hear about your accident but am happy to hear that you're okay. You poor thing!

Also, I love your chair! So beautiful. Have fun choosing your fabrics and re-doing the chair!

Blessings to you,
Erin

Abbie said...

Vee said...

Hi Beau... I am fairly new to your Cindy's blog... ...but may I just add my best wishes to those of the other ladies.

Maybe next time you see her lighting anything on fire ..... give her "that look" and she can check for spillage or other hazards....
seriously though... hope she is right as rain soon.

Shelley Jo said...

I'm sorry you're not feeling well and that you have some minor burns. I'm thankful your burns weren't worse, though. Prayers coming your way!

Dawn-Enigma Artist said...

wish I could send you chicken soup!

your eyelashes will grow back. I had a gas oven blow up in my face while trying to light the pilot. I was in college and the Dr. said they wouldn't. (I had to wear an eye patch for awhile... aarggh me lassie)

I used Mary Kay mascara on my little stubs. They grew back.

take care and we will ALL still be here when you are up to par.

so rest!!! heal!! you and yours are in my prayers!

bee'nme said...

Oh dear - girl, I am so glad it wasn't worse, but goodness it sounds bad enough! And a cold on top of it all - ugh - so sorry! Rest, rest, rest and please know there is a small army out here praying for your swift recovery - we love you Cindy - please take care...

Hugs and Blessings,
Becky S.

Robyn said...

OMG! Cindy! I glad to hear that you DIDN"T burn off your face...you poor thing! Get well dear friend!

Sher's Creative Expressions said...

Oh my Gosh Cindy, feel better soon. Don't refill those stinking lighters. . . throw them out and purchase new ones. They are cheap enough. . . certainly not worth taking a chance of having what happened to you again.

Your eyelashes and brows will grow back you poor dear.

Blessings,

Sher

Laurie4567@aol.com said...

Oh, Cindy - how scary! I hope you are feeling better soon. I have never had any luck refilling a lighter, now I am afraid to try it again! Take care!

Gloria said...

Oh my goodness! I'm so glad it wasn't worse. That must have been a real scary moment. I always wanted to try the fake lashes so now you have an excuse to get those until yours grow back. Take the day off and just take it easy. You deserve it.
Hugs, Gloria

Oh, sweetie Beau, give Cindy my best. Tell her we miss her and hope she is recovering. Also remind her to stay home... I wish I'd stayed home more through my life...

Gail McCormack said...

Oh Beau please tell Cindy we wish her well and I have heard if you singe your eyelashes they grow back twice as long. Take care of your lovely mistress Beau

Jen said...

I am so sorry that you had such an experience! I can only imagine how scary it can be. I hope you are healing well and will feel much better soon. ~Jen

Beau - you're so sweet to let us know about Cindy. I know you must have been very frightened. Tell Cindy they have eyelash extensions - look very real too!
Remember Beau, do not play with fire....
Make sure Cindy takes very good care of herself....

cityfarmer said...

Oh dear, I've been away for a few days and...well, I am thinking about you....viewing your own coffee table should make you feel better.

Arlene said...

Oh Cindy, I am sorry that happened and hope you are feeling better soon!

Carol D said...

Hi Cindy, I had a propane stove "explode" in my face when I tried to light the pilot. It burned my eyebrows and eyelashes and they grew back just fine.
