"I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it, don't wait for it, just... let it happen."

Good morning! What are you doing this weekend? I'm so glad it's Friday, because this weekend I'm going to a Twin Peaks prom party and art show at Boheme Collectif. Think art, burlesque, old-school rock and roll, a costume contest, damn fine coffee and cherry pie, and probably about a million girls doing the Audrey Horne dance. I'm glad Keith has a reason to bust out his Agent Dale Cooper costume. He even designed an RR Diner mug for it! Hmm, I wonder if he'll refer to me as Diane all night...

Anyway, I'm perusing all of these excellent Twin Peaks goodies on Etsy and deciding whether I should dress up like a One Eyed Jacks girl, make en eyepatch and go as Nadine (wearing a wrestling singlet too would be hilarious, but NO!) or go all 90s lumberjack chic. What do you think?

Love that crazy Red Room sticker! Eight Twin Peaks stickers by KatesLittleStore on Etsy, $4.00

I love the mod 60s vibe on this fan art! Twin Peaks art print by sanasini on Etsy, $18.00
OMG, this is a pocket-sized Black Lodge. I LOVE MINIATURES SO MUCH, you don't even know.

My favorite kind of fan art--it's subtle and makes you look twice before it clicks and you say, "OH! TWIN PEAKS!"
Twin Peaks Characters Hair Styles Print by kellylasserre on Etsy, $38.00
If you can't get enough Twin Peaks, either, check out these posts from two very stylish Nashville bloggers: Lauren at Old Red Boots shares her Twin Peaks charm bracelet, and Lisa from She Was a Bird shows how she incorporates Twin Peaks in her living room decor. Or, just read Sherilyn Fenn's blog. Yeah, you read that correctly.(!!!)

Have a good weekend, y'all!

    2. Lovely Jen! of course I take time to read your blog every now and then - your writing rarely fails to bring a smile to my face and your eye for beautiful things is just incredible, as are you by the way - you are looking just amazing :D
      Me? ah I shouldn't complain, I spend most of my life either in the lab, reading fantasy novels (still on book 6 of a song of ice and fire) or riding my friend's horse, and that's just fine with me.
      congrats on the massive number of page views, you must be proud!! I hope that all at home and work is marvelous or at least a work in progress!

    3. Aww, thank you! We both went through some big changes together in 2009, hmm? :) Things here are always a work in progress... Once one room is decorated, another room seems to need work. And there are always more books to read, but that's more fun than work.

      Stop the presses! Is book six of Song of Ice and Fire already out on your side of the pond? I'd give my eyeteeth to read it. Is it good?
