Beachy Kiss

I had hoped ton include this post in last weeks smoochy lovefest, but the flu had other plans for me. This is my take on the scene from From Here to Eternity. What can I say I am a sucker for the beach though getting sand in places where no one wants sand is not exactly fun.

Lover's Beach Kiss


As with my first entry into the foray, this one is also in black and white, as was the film. You can see the color version on flickr. This whole series of posts was a fun, so you may seem more theme weeks from me in the future. I have more ideas than I seem to have time. Well onto the credits for you.

The Journal Kiss

Today I attempted the scene in the rain from The Notebook. Again it's not a perfect remake. I would have been at it for a lot longer than I wanted to be if I tried that. So instead of a lake there is a lovely pond. But hey there is still rain! No quote for this one, just the epic kiss.

The Journal Kiss


I can not lie. I am obsessed with men with beards lately. I think that is why it makes this one my favorite and perfect for Valentine's Day. Even if you are alone today, just remember I still love you ♥♥

I'm just a girl

Today's trip down lovers lane brings us to Knotting Hill, and a little travel bookshop. If you haven't guessed and I am just referring to a place, but also the movie Knotting Hill. This time I am taking on the scene where Julia Roberts (Anna) confesses her feelings to Hugh Grant (Will).


Anna Scott: After all, I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.


Here I give you my version of that scene, with some tweaks of course.

Just a girl


Not that you can tell from this photo, but I had and entire set created to be the travel bookshop. Of course the angle I chose cut off all of it. Oh well.

An Airfield Goodbye

It's Valentine's Day this week so I was inspired to do my own creative license version of some famous romantic scenes from movies. Today I am starting with the scene in Casablanca where Rick and Ilsa part company. They had this exchange...


Rick Blaine: If that plane leaves the ground and you're not with him, you'll regret it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.
Ilsa: But what about us?
Rick Blaine: We'll always have Paris. We didn't have it before...we'd...we'd lost it until you came to Casablanca. We got it back last night.
Ilsa: When I said I would never leave you...
Rick Blaine: And you never will. But I've got a job to do too. Where I'm going, you can't follow. What I've got to do, you can't be any part of. Ilsa, I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you'll understand that. Here's looking at you, kid.

Rick and Ilsa

Since the film is in black and white I chose to take the picture in black and white. I changed a few things for my photo, for instance my Rick is much younger than Humphrey Bogart. If you want to see the colored version you can check it out on flickr. I personally think it loses some of it's charm in color, but it does show what I am wearing much better. Do you have a favorite romantic movie scene? Let me know, maybe I can try that one out at some point.

Vacant

Just like my stare


This background seemed perfect for a few reasons at this moment. For starters the blog has been vacant for over a month. Between computer issues and non digital life craziness it just hasn't been happening. Hopefully that will be changing now. Also my mind has been a pretty vacant place. I think that is just a dramatic way of saying I have/had bloggers block. This usually happens when my inventory is a mess. Am I the only one who finds a chaotic inventory to be a distraction?

Just like my mind some days

As I was sorting things, I put together this look. I thought it was pretty cool so I thought I would share. Oh and I have to share a funny about this photo. As I was uploading it to flickr, the mister asked what I was listening to. He assumed it was an album cover. I think I could totally see that now that I think about it.

Trimming the tree

This year I had some help decorating my tree, since Livy was on break from preschool. She loves decorating the tree, but she doesn't exactly reach all the way to the top. That is where I come in. My job is to decorate the top parts of the tree, but even I need a step stool for it. Livy was getting a little distracted by Buster the puppy who was running around under the tree. The silly boy even tried to climb it. Sometimes I think he is part cat! Eventually Livy and I got the putting the star on top of the tree. I think next year I need a shorter tree or a taller step stool.

Choosing the perfect tree

Hot Chocolate


Before any tree choosing can happen one needs fortification. In this case it is a warm cup of hot chocolate. However if you are going in the morning may I suggest a festive peppermint mocha. All the chocolate goodness of cocoa with the caffeine boost of coffee. Once you have that then it's time to hit the tree farm, or tree lot depending on where you live. When I lived up north we went to a tree farm, tramped through the snow, mud or whatever was covering the ground at the time. That isn't an option where I live now so if I want a real tree it's parking lot tree lot. Now it's the hard part. Finding that perfect tree. You don't want one too tall for the room you are putting it in, not do you want it too scraggly that is has giant gaps in it. For me the perfect tree needs to be tall, not too fat around and it must smell like a Christmas tree.

This is a good one

This one looks perfect to me. Look at those strong branches and lovely green needles. It will look fantastic in my living room all dressed up in Christmas finery. What is your preferred look for a Christmas tree?
