John Hurt. Bill Nighy. Sir Ian McKellen. And fabulously elegant and decked out British gents (just because). Need I say more? *sighs* I could swoon, Phil Poynter does an excellent job. I'm a big fan of British movies and British actors. It's the accent, and the history. And the fact that they can pull off the tweeds and straight pants (trousers) like non other. I studied abroad in Birmingham, England, five or six years ago (for a whole 9 months) and loved almost every minute. There is something about three months of rain that I couldn't quite absorb. But, I fully immersed myself in the tea, the "brellies," the history, and the culture. Andrew and I will put a British flick on and I'll immediately look at him with puppy eyes and ask "when can we go back?"
Also, I had to mention on a side note that for the first time in months, one of my Red Otter journals made it to the front page of the Etsy site! I was tickled pink--it's such a beautiful treasury!
