If you like musicals and Johnny Depp, this is so your scene. Cry Baby is a 1990 film by John Waters, of the original Hairspray fame. It has 1950’s style, rockabilly and sugar pop retro music, Ricki Lake and an ex-porn star. This is my favorite song and scene, if you’re interested.
Found this photo of the wall that was behind my desk in Chicago. I have some art up in my office right now, but I’m feeling inspired to fill it out a little more, and definitely include some photos of a life that’s technology free. It’s the little things, right?
Ever since it got to be a bearable temperature outside early last month, I’ve been obsessing over how I’m going to redo my backyard (truthfully I’d been obsessing all winter). Mostly up to this point, we’ve worked on clearing out some areas previously left unkempt, and now that I’m starting to get serious about making a Plan (officially with a capital P), I’m going over everything I’ve pinned to my Garden Board. Looking at everything together really makes it obvious what my tastes are: unfussy, overgrown, extreme privacy, a healthy mix of flowers intertwined with space for afternoon barbecues and late nights under twinkling fairy lights. And a fire pit. Always.
