Beginning of the Week Pick-Me-Up

Maybe you're excited that it's Monday, I am not particularly thrilled. If you have the Monday Blues (a continuation of the ultra sickening Sunday Night Blues) I have some images and video that should make you feel better, or maybe scared, hypnotized, inspired, confused, nostalgic, or at least, distracted. 

My homegirl! Shelley! What a fabulously strange woman.

Ringin' any bells?

Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre
If you, tragically, are not familiar, Faerie Tale Theatre was the most incredible television series to ever air. All live action Brothers Grimm and other such classic fairytales.

Suddenly I'm craving turkish delights, know what I mean?

Incredible accessories!

 The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, ( the 1988 production)

I still half-expect this to happen to me and am often genuinely shocked and disappointed to discover that what I thought was a magical little something, glimmering in the morning sun, waiting for me, is in fact a discarded kit-kat wrapper from an already forgotten midnight snack. 

1986 production of "A Little Princess"

Charming, occasionally tiresome, heroes (Dick Van Dyke is so hot)

Horrifying creep

Evil, ostentatious, perverts.
All from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang



The treehouse scene in Swiss Family Robinson...

These movies always bring back such strong, specific feelings. They also seem to sit in the back of my mind, cooking and occasionally popping out and taking me back in time.

  1. You have the most imaginative and fantastical ideas.
    Your My Secret Shame is brilliant. I have never seen any sites for weddings to compare with these, these are perfection. Brava. The wedding industry needs help!
