Of Moons, Birds, and Monsters

Hope you like the pictures...Bretton and I accidentally stumbled upon this courtyard and I just had to blog it up. So many secrets to discover in this city...sigh.








Dress: Modcloth; Boots: Minnetonka; Cardigan: F21; Scarf: Somewhere in Italy...I have no idea; Tights: Target; Socks: Urban Outfitters

(I'm not as stealth as I think I am...he seems to suspect something...)

Very exciting news! The film crew of 'Burke and Hare' shot a couple of scenes in my building's courtyard! They hung props from my window, installed these huge fresnels (lights), and Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis used my common room as their green room! I was within feet of them at one point. It was all very overwhelming (hence the excessive use of exclamation points), especially for a Lord of the Rings fan such as myself. I was very tempted to ask Simon Pegg if he was cast as Bilbo, but I think obnoxiously smiling at him every time we made eye contact was enough. I can't wait to look for my flat when the movie comes out :D

that is just too exciting. for real. It probably will still be in post production, but may be, just may be it will be in the Edinburgh film festival? Fingers crossed?

Love the outfit as always- I feel like you're right out of Robin Hood in the best possible way- bad ass maid marion?
(just can't help myself: writing from sunny California- I really think I could make this my home!)
