I watched Notting Hill with the baby today.  I hadn't seen it in years, it's still better than I remember.  In the opening of the movie Hugh Grant's character talks about Notting Hill and why he lives there and loves it so much.  It made me really want to visit, it looks so beautiful.  My senior year of highschool I went to London and surrounding areas, but never made it to Notting Hill.  When I go abroad again, I think I will definitely make time to visit.  Here are some images of what attracts me to the area.

This reminds me so much of Thom Yorke's album cover from The Eraser posted justed below.

I'm pretty excited!  I have found a beginners pottery class.  January 26- March 2nd, on Wednesday nights.  And when the course is over they offer pretty cheap memberships with 24/7 access to the studio and equiptment.  I really want to get my Etsy shop in the works, and I want decent stuff.  I want to take more lessons and learn new crafts (pun inteanded).  Eventually I would like to take some knitting classes so I can get better.  I want to learn to knit socks, or mittens, anything besides scarves!  Here are some pieces of pottery inspiration.

I watched the greatest movie on Netflix last night.  Loves of a Blonde, directed by Milos Forman.  It was made in Czechoslovakia in 1965.  It was just so funny, and sad and cute.  The lead actress, Hana Brejchova, is such a babe.
