Until Monday!

First of all — I have great news for you — decor8 is on a new faster server AND only 12 (instead of 20) posts show up on the main page to decrease site load time. Yay! Now I have great news for me. :) Today is turkey day (US) so I’m taking off for the afternoon along with tomorrow and Friday to relax with my family, enjoy the winter markets that just kicked off, finish some work-related projects and a bunch of other things including a mini getaway and I’m attending a design & crafts fair this weekend. I also plan to practice a little photography! I’m excited about my mini break…. weeee!

little things :)

My husband is taking me to see New Moon tonight, isn’t he sweet? In my local theater you can buy movie tickets in advance and reserve specific seats (they’re numbered, great idea right?) so we have fab seats and so we won’t have to worry about arriving early and waiting in line. New Moon is huge here, all of the film times sold out within a day.

What do you plan to do over the next few days? Anything fun?

I’ll be back on Monday, November 30th so I’ll see you again real soon. Much love to you!

    Family, crafts, fairs, and movies sound like lots of fun for a perfect long weekend! I’m going to see some of my relatives. Congrats on the new faster server. My computer and internet are so slow it takes me forever to make a post. I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Holly! We’re in Philadelphia visiting family for the holiday! There’s a craft show right around the corner from my parents house this week and my sister and I are going to see New Moon tonight, too (we’re dragging my husband along!). Have a great mini vaca and holiday celebration

    You gals all excited for New Moon really have to explain the attraction of this movie. Theme and execution makes it suitable for young girls until 16 so I’m seriously wondering what ladies above 25 find so interesting about it… Yes, I’ve seen the first film but that was mediocre at best (wooden acting, painfully bad dialogues, overall silly plot but then again, I don’t like my vampires to sparkle ;-)) so I’m very very curious about all the excitement, please enlighten me!

    I’ve been loafing around all week. I’m headed to Augusta, Ga with my mom and little brother to eat lots of turkey, collard greens, sweet potato pie and ohhh…I hope there’s some deviled crab there too. Nom nom nom nom. I think I actually might skip a meal today, because I’m going to stuff delicious food in my belly tomorrow.

    Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    Sacha – Thank you for your comment. Great question though I don’t think age is pertinent when it comes to entertainment and so when you wrote, “I’m seriously wondering what ladies above 25 find so interesting about it (New Moon)” I guess I’m not clear on what you meant. Did you mean to say that a female over 25 who follows the Twilight books/movies is confusing to you because it is a teen romance?

    If so, I can briefly explain the attraction… :)

    No matter how old a woman becomes… 25, 35, 80… there is still a younger version of herself inside. The 80 year old still recalls her first love. The 20 year old still recalls the first time she kissed a boy. And so on. Point is, a romantic story often subconsciously brings to mind personal memories of past loves which allows the viewer to relate to the film and make a connection. That emotional connection may have NOTHING to do with current relationships at all but on some level, certain aspects can be related to even currently. When I watch Twilight, New Moon, etc. I see it no differently that the tons of “over 25″ males who flock to watch Batman or the recent animated version of Star Wars. Again, identifiable characters, action, set design, it’s all a part of the whole to me and what makes movies, in my book, suitable for anyone above a certain age (PG13, over age 13. Not 13-25 only.).

    For instance, when I watch the series I recall the passion and excitement involved in being with a man whom I loved but who wasn’t exactly “right” for me but at that time, whom I felt was “so right” for me. Any woman who has once loved a “bad boy” or who was involved in a relationship were the parents were not too keen on, or that friends were warning you against… well all that is in this film so it’s easy to connect with the main character. Or perhaps if none of that applies, there is always current drama in life that may connect the viewer to the characters. Feeling unaccepted by friends, wanting love to work out, experiencing a change in a relationship, feeling alone or misunderstood — again all scenarios that are felt at any age.

    Same goes for when I saw Coraline, Shrek, The Incredibles — even a random episode of Sponge Bob is pretty funny and well, dumb but funny nonetheless. These are all animated films that perhaps some would say are meant for kids, but certain elements are fascinating to adults whether it is the style of the characters and animation, or other things like the laugh out loud humor or how cleverly dark yet hopeful a film like Corpse Bride can be.

    Stella – We can book movie tickets in advance in the states, but none of the seats are assigned — it’s completely random. So when you go to the theater you must stand in line and PRAY you got there in enough time to grab a decent seat. And most people leave ONE seat in between the next person so most of the time if the movie is sold out you have to split up and sit alone somewhere and your partner sits somewhere else. You can ask, say a couple to move over a seat to free up a set of seats but most people either act annoyed by the suggestion, growl at you, or do it but act like they just handed you their winning lottery ticket. That is precisely why I stopped going to opening weekend for new movies. Not worth the stress.

    Thanks for elaborating, Holly. While I do understand being able to look back and identify with feelings other than the ones more prevalent at one’s current age & emotional state, in fact it’s only human to do so!, the Twilight movie doesn’t make it easy to do so. At least not for me, that’s why I was quite curious how this works for others! The movie’s approach and implementation is done so poorly any emotional connection, for me, is near impossible because it pulled all the wrong strings (basically I snickered throughout the film, if not being utterly bored). I recently read this review: http://www.pajiba.com/paheeba_day/twilight-realtime-review.php, my feelings exactly minus most of the obscenities. It’s not that I don’t understand teenage love/longing, being an outcast (I’m more of an einzelganger myself so I should know) etc. but does it have to be portrayed in such a shallow, clichéd manner?!? I mentioned the age limit because understandably the Twilight approach should work well for predominantly young girls with (obviously) little experience in love and life in general. Not that that’s a bad thing, it’s part of growing up, but being an older viewer one would nearly feel insulted with such an overly superficial look at life. The other movies you mentioned like The Incredibles, Coraline and The Corpse Bride were far, far superior to this! Aside from being just a lot of fun these were more layered and complex movies, resembling real life itself without dumbing it down (while still appealing to a wide audience!). And with better acting (more range in displaying emotions)!!
    In the end of course it all boils down to taste, you either like it or not and sometimes it’s hard to explain. There’s no right and wrong in that respect and it’s all in the eye of the beholder but I’m just fascinated by this cultural phenomenon that I can’t quite grasp…

    Enjoy your break – I am going to see New Moon myself on Saturday.

    I’m not a true fan but my best friend is taking me along for a girls day out. I haven’t read the books so the film has no expectations to live up to for me. My friend is a little obsessed to say the least! I think it’s fun when something like a film, a book (or a interiors shot in my case) can generate such a level of excitement in you. Its the endorphin rush isn’t it?

    When I was in London last summer I went to see a movie with some friends and it was so weird for me that we had to find seats ourselves. The film had already began when we walked in and it was not very comfortable standing in front of all the people and wondering where there are more seats available. So yes, being able to buy tickets in advance and having seats reserved is definitely a good thing!
    Have a wonderful time off :) xo

    Holly, what impressed me most this year was The Hurt Locker (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0887912/), though I don’t think it’s everyone’s cup of tea (belonging to the war/action genre). I was surprised how it drew me in and kept me at the edge of my seat. It felt more like a live-feed documentary than a “conventional” film and the weirdest part is that there isn’t even a plot (generally that would be a big minus for me but in this case I wasn’t bothered by it at all). Othere memorable movies are Slumdog Millionaire and Waltz with Bashir (beautiful animation!), and performances that blew me away were to be found in Orphan (suspenseful! the kid that plays Esther is astounding) and Inglourious Basterds (Christoph Waltz who plays the devious Col. Hans Landa).
    How about you? What would you recommend?

    I will be going out with friends for the meal and then probably stopping by the Zoo afterwards for a chilly day with the animals. I love going to the zoo on holidays.

    Really pretty packaging Holly, and captured in your photo so nicely. =) I’ll be cooking like a dumbie tomorrow. (I only say dumbie because I’m making way too much for food two people, and I’m sure I’ll be regreting it! But that’s what a bottle of wine is for, right? hehe) Black Friday will be insane of course, because my other job is retail, yikes! So, I’ll be out working it as usual.

    Which reminds me, please be nice to those of us working dear shoppers. We are just as frazzled, if not more so, as you. Lots of us didn’t get to spent holiday time with family the day before because we couldn’t travel after considering how early we needed to be at work the next day. Just take a deep breath, neither you nor I need to freak out about a sweater. At the end of the day, it’s JUST a sweater. Everything will be okay. ; )

    I haven’t seen New Moon yet and didn’t think it would be my kind of movie, but after reading this post, I think I need to check it out. Like your post said, we often get set in our ways and sometimes the best ideas, best designs and most creative moments are when we let go of our assumed likes and dislikes and open our minds.

    I will be cooking (yikes) but plan on spending black Friday at the beach in California with my family and then maybe a little shopping on super saturday. I am focused on buying handmade, custom designed and unique gifts this year so will be visiting more craft fairs, local street fairs, browsing on etsy and supporting my local retailers. I guess I better check to see if the Turkey is thawed! Till monday…

Tomorrow, a gracious relaxed day: lingering over morning coffee and embroidery; a bike ride in the sunshine and crisp air; cooking a non-trad meal with friends; fantasy movie marathon (Spirited Away; Mirror Mask; Hogfather; A Christmas Carol) with wine and cheese dessert platter. Then shopping, crafts projects, rearrange and rotate artwork and bring out Christmas decor and unapologetically play my favorite traditional English Christmas carol CDs.

    I can’t really explain my strong connection to the Twilight series. I think you really explained it well, Holly. The emotions it stirs up, the passion, etc just floats my boat. :) I don’t think it has anything to do with age. I felt a very strong connection with the movie, Titanic (nearly an obsession), and its theme is very similar.

    I saw New Moon this past weekend and LOVED it. http://tomkatstudio.blogspot.com/2009/11/my-latest-obsession-beware-this-one.html I left the theater with a smile on my face! I can’t wait to start reading Eclipse!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
    XOXO, Kim

    Sacha – Oh there are so many movies that I would suggest. Appleseed, Mirror Mask, The Reader, all of the Bourne movies, anything with Jean Reno (I liked Leon the Professional and Wasabi) or Cate Blanchett (Notes on a Scandal), About A Boy (a favorite), Das Parfum, Amelie (of course, right?), Every Time We Say Goodbye, Iron Man, Ronin, You’ve Got Mail, Meet The Parents, In Her Shoes, Analyze This, Hors de prix..

    Films I want to see: Bright Star, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Sherlock Holmes, Coco avant Chanel…

    I could go one forever. I love films of all shapes and sizes! :)

    The Reader and Notes on a Scandal! I have yet to see these ones, thanks for reminding me, Holly :-) . And yes, Amelie was lovely! Leon is a great pick too; I don’t think Nat Portman has been better in anything else since then (which makes me sad when I think about it ’cause it means she peaked at such a young age!). I too am looking forward to Sherlock Holmes. And Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland! Just looking at the movie’s artwork makes me giddy: http://www.wired.com/underwire/2009/06/first-look-tim-burton-takes-alice-to-weird-wild-wonderland/, http://www.filmtotaal.nl/artikel.php?id=15597.
    Enjoy your looooong weekend!

    Love the photo! For me this week, it will be packing and more packing…We’re moving into a 4-bedroom house in West London next Friday (I’m super, hyper excited!!!) so I’ll be packing all weekend and probably will have to go to the warehouse to do more packing as Christmas orders are going through the roof!

    Nothing exciting but I’m very much looking forward to come back to our house at the end of December after Xmas in France and start thinking about decoration, mood boards….all the fun stuff

    Hi Holly! I found myself disappointed this morning that i didnt get my decor8 fix! but i’m very glad you are taking a well deserved break! I cant wait for my 2.5 weeks off over Christmas!

    I rushed to see new moon with my best friend last Friday – i’m 26 – i found myself clutching my friends hand and giggling like a school girl. While I can appreciate that its not a movie of EPIC grandeur or meaning, it does evoke the fond memories of school lust and teen angst, and lets be honest, who doesn’t appreciate Jacobs well defined figure. YAY! I love being girly sometimes! :)

    Mindi – Totally — And I nearly died when I found out that he is only 16 in real life too. I never went to high school with boys like Jacob or Edward!
