Some movies and decorating

I went to see Hairspray last night and oh it sure was fun. If you need a laugh opr a pick me up this is the movie for you. John Travolta is of course fantastic as a woman but there are many other funny things and situations. Newcomer Niclole Blonsky is a delight. I just love the idea that she was working in an ice cream parlor right before she got the role.


I also ended up renting Miss Potter this weekend. Renee Zelwegger plays Beatrix Potter in the story of her life. She definetly was a woman before her time. It is filmed in the Lake District in England and the scenery is so fantastic. Its is beautifully done and such a wonderful story of an incredible life.

Decorating

I haven's showed all the decorating I have done so I guess its time for pictures.
First is the quilt I bought for the bed. Its Called Tea Garden and it looks very nice with the color scheme.














Next is the nightstand and lamp as you can see its already getting some use.



















This print I found at a thrift store, it was already matted and I just added the frame. Its a little collage of beach items, simple but evokes a nice mood.















This is a print I found at Michaels, I like to think that is my chair and I am just going off for a walk on the beach. I don't know what that blob is in the background, I don't see it when I look at the picture, perhaps it is something on the glass.

i LOVE the colour of the walls - like a summer's day...
i can recommend emailing deb, the story-beads creator - i couldn't decide between the totem and the celtic beads, so she said, 'let's customize!!' i love the fact the beads are half my ideas, half her intuition...
let me know if you get some :o)

Mahala,

You are so right, I blew the picture up and there is the blob, otherwise known as me taking the picture.

Beautiful color scheme! So calm and serene. Really does make one think of a breezy summer day.

I also enjoyed "Miss Potter." Ewan was adorable and the story made me cry.
