Weekend Inspiration


Happy Friday! This will seem like a random question, but have you seen the movie A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night? If you haven’t seen it, it’s hard to describe, but “the first Iranian Vampire Western ever made,” sums up some of its unique elements. I don’t normally care about vampire or horror movies, but I liked it a lot. The director, Ana Lily Amirpour, has a new movie that will be showing at a film festival at a ski lodge nearby on Mt. Hood. The Shining used the very same location, Timberline Lodge, for the exterior establishing shots of The Overlook Hotel, so it makes sense that it’s a horror film festival called The Overlook Film Festival. Anyway, we got tickets for a showing this weekend, so we’ll be driving up a mountain to watch a horror movie in a ski lodge. (If you want an idea of what the lodge and mountain are like, my brother also got married in part of the lodge last year.) Should be a fun little trip!

These sequin-trimmed baskets look like such an easy, cute project.

Sweet multi-colored pompoms make adorable bag charms.

A real problem would be deciding whether to shower in here or in here. If only we all had such a tough choice!

Ditch disposable plastic bags in favor of this chic faux leather DIY grocery tote.

This strawberry rhubarb sangria has me looking forward to summer berries, and backyard patio hangouts.
