I just learned about this new film starring Molly Shannon as the American poet Emily Dickinson, and as it is being shown here in Bend this coming week, I think I might have to check it out. With more of a humorous approach, the plot is inspired by Dickinson’s private letters and is described by critics as “vibrant, irreverent and tender–a perhaps closer depiction of Emily Dickinson’s real life than anything seen before”. Have a look at the trailer below.
After reading this profile article of Tracee Ellis Ross, and enjoying learning of her love for shopping, she also brought to my attention a show I have been meaning to watch on Netflix, but have yet to begin. No longer. I have viewed the first episode, and think you might enjoy it as well. Call My Agent is a French comedy series set in France (with subtitles) following three talent agents who have to scramble to keep their star clients happy and their business afloat. Premiering in 2015 and now with three seasons available to view on Netflix, I think you will enjoy, if you haven’t begun to do so already.
Earlier in the week I shared simple tips for keeping your copper polished, and with this copper mixing bowl available under $40, perhaps you have found your next copper treasure!

The weekend is here, and this weekend in particular has been a weekend I have been excited to see arrive as it kicks of TSLL’s first annual British Week!
As seen below, Inslee has created a beautiful image with the quintessential British details that always seem to come to mind when I think of the English countryside to help with this new yearly event. Be sure to stop by Sunday morning when it will all begin.
And with that, let’s start enjoying the weekend, shall we? Below I have compiled a list of a few articles you might enjoy as well as a 30-minute video on books and reading you may enjoy. Wishing you a lovely few days of rest, sunshine, relaxation and fun. Until Sunday! Bonne journée!
