A few months ago I wrote about the movie inspiration
I have been drawing on for Tahilla Farm.
Nancy Meyers came to mind with films such as..
You were all unanimous,
I had made good choices…
Mr. H read my post and went quiet...I could tell something was coming.
He said: "Actually, I had a few movies of my own in mind."
I said: "Ok, but please tell me the list does not involve Tarzan,
I have outgrown treehouses.."
He said: "Better than that, the movies I have in mind for Tahilla Farm are…."
I said: "You do realise we own an antique farmhouse don’t you?"
He said: "We are renovating…let’s have fun."
I was: speechless
I like to look for the positive in every situation
and decided to think it through rationally, (as you do)
starting with the female leads in his movie suggestions.
|Catherine Deneuve in Indochine|
|Meryl Streep in Out of Africa|
|Virgina McKenna in Born Free|
It was looking promising..except for a slight
detour with a vampire
|Peta Wilson in The League of Extraordinary Gentelmen|
and I was baffled by The Addams Family..
but then again, maybe not. Afer all, we do have Fred
as a result of one of Mr. H's expeditions.
It has an Addams family quality to it.
|Carolyn Jones in The Addams Family|
After 27 years, life is anything but dull with Mr. H
and I can tell you it has been a journey trying to work out
where we are going with Tahilla Farm.
The latest "discussion" involved the master bedroom window.
I often wonder what our architect must think of us…
Mrs. H suggested the bedroom window in the movie...
|Something's Gotta Give|
Mr. H suggested the window from the ship in the movie..
|Master and Commander|
Our builder mentioned the challenge of a curve.
The end result…
we just received the price to build our fantasy window.
We are back to the drawing board.
Maybe that treehouse isn't looking so bad after all?

I am writing this post by way of Tahilla Farm in New Hampshire and sending Happy Birthday wishes to Mr. H in Vietnam. Our travels often revolve around his birthday which means he often spends it on his own. This one is for you Mr. H…I have just the spot for that treehouse! ;)
Please join me in wishing
