WeekDay Wrap-Up 15: Quaint and Quirky

The Reader by yelena bryksenkova

It’s another Friday, this one sunny and cool with the promise of warmth as the day goes on. I’m feeling all quaint and quirky and I’m not quite sure why. It’s a moody, happy, dreamy sort of state of being, like I could slip off into a world of my own making at any moment and yet I’m still aware of what’s going on around me. I think part of it is this insane weather (and we are supposed to be getting rain all weekend – I do enjoy a nice rainy weekend from time to time) and the other part is just me.

Yeah, those are the windows to my zany soul…

It’s not like the week was a weird one, actually it was a rather normal one with a few jaunts thrown in for good measure. I even got myself some new washi tape and few more notebooks…but can you blame me when they are so pretty?!

NewNotebooksWahiTapeI’ve also started to reread “The Crimson Petal and The White” by Michel Faber. It’s a long, detailed read but I have to say that I have a much deeper appreciation for it and for the characters (whom I found to be rather unlikable before) since seeing the mini-series starring Romola Garai, Chris O’Dowd, and Amanda Hale. They bring a whole new light to the novel with their stunning performances and the series it’s self is brilliantly interpreted and filmed. Mind you, this is very high praise from me since I find most book to screen adaptations to be poor to mildly fair at best (I’m such a stickler for keeping true to the author’s vision – I know word-for-word will never happen, but the spirit and essence of the story and characters should remain well-intact).

The Crimson Petal and the White The studio Spring cleaning that got started last weekend is coming along nicely and now it’s down to decorating and organizing things like my desk and the bookshelf (I swear this place needs more shelving, so a-thrifting I shall go!). I am starting to feel a bit more motivated to make things and my fingers are starting to get the stitcher’s itch again. Finding cute and amazing things like these is adding to the creative lust…

I will so be making at least one of those cases from Gingermelon – they are to die for cute. Those mushrooms, on the other hand, simply tickle my mind with all kinds of ideas of my own making. Here’s to a quaint, quirky weekend for us all!
