A place both wonderful but strange
My Dad's house is as Minnesotan as it gets. Completely made out of logs there is antler toilet roll holders, coat hangers and chandeliers. There's log chairs, a rock fire place, a bear rug, wooden ducks, rabbit furs and many other stuffed animals. It transcends the cliché winter wonderland surrounded by snow covered hanging trees, heavy forests and wild animals all situated right on the big lake. Being in a small town there is a middle-of nowhere feeling that becomes unusually beautiful. Driving through you see hand painted signs, pine trees, lakes, deers fleeting from cars, flashing neon signs, the token casino, empty traffic lights, small diners and the locals who all know each other. It was only natural in my mind for all these things to become reminiscent of Twin Peaks, which is coincidently one of my Dad's favourite shows.
Most of the stills are taken from season 1 with a few odd ones from season 2. At the beginning I didn't particularly like Audrey Horne but by season 2 she was my favourite character. That's what's really special about Twin Peaks, all the characters are so diverse and thoroughly explored and developed. They are easy to feel connected with. Dale Cooper is such a dreamboat and Laura Palmer is strikingly enigmatic.
I love how Twin Peaks is filled with symbolic colours, mysterious motifs and random tchotchkes. Such as coffee, cherry pie, pine trees, owls, logs, water and fire.
I can do nothing less but dress like I'm from Twin Peaks while I aimlessly roam around this log cabin.

This outfit I wore awhile ago had to be included as it gave off some Twin Peak vibes. I felt like I was Audrey Horne for a day, living in my own strange but wonderful place. And now I am leaving this log cabin and going to London!
