I am back from my mom’s and it was a great little trip. We hit some garage sales, took the kids to the little water park, ate Chinese with Juju and her love, filling “that boy” up with lots of good stories about Judy Carlene and family addictions – Watching “What’s Up Doc” and eating our fried shrimp tails being just a few… It was all those great things about summer that I love- swimming, napping, taking things slow…
Then I came home. And while that was great, it comes with a hefty “To Do” list. I wasn’t going to post tonight (remember that hefty To Do List?) but my children are driving me a little batty this evening and I know I needed some fun and pretty things to distract me and I thought you might too…
Because of all the great comments for my Cinematic Inspiration post, I decided I would list my Top 10 Movie Sets of All Time (for me personally, not technically or critically or anything….) These are all movies I love and adore by the way. I don’t know if I could list a movie that had a great set but that I hated. I guess I just can’t be that impartial… Also there are lots of movies that didn’t make the list but came very close and several that I am sure I will remember about the time my head hits the pillow tonight…
1. Most Nora Ephron Movies: Starting with You’ve Got Mail – The brownstone, the bookstore, the apartment with the books, the market, the kids fair. The whole movie is eye candy to me…
OMG, >You named so many of my favorites too. I like the English cottge in the Holiday. The Family Stone house is so great too!>My very favorite movie You’ve Got Mail. I love the little store as well as her house. (I’ve seen that one probaby 50 times)>The beach house in Spanglish is soo Malibu. We actually hang out there a lot. One of my husbands cities that he covers is Malibu.>I love all of your picks. You have great taste in movie and movie sets.>Glad you had a fun little trip. Have a wonderful weekend!>Rosemary

I have seen most of the movies you mentioned and thought the same things about the sets. I loved all the pillows in Spanglish…it looks so comfy. I wish there were better pictures out there too. I really want to be able to get a good look at the Friends set…I know it is not a movie, but a set that I have always wanted to see some good photos of.
Oh, you picked some good ones there! some of my faves, the Family Stone had me sobbing!

I totally agree especially on Bewitched, Under the Tuscan Sun, The Family Stone, Something’s Gotta Give and You’ve Got Mail which I just watched again the other day (love that movie). I’m gonna have to watch Divine Secrets again as I can’t conjure up the images of the houses in that movie. I also love to watch the Stepford wives and Practical Magic for the houses.
Ooh, totally agree to with so many. I need to add Practical Magic to the list. You’ve Got Mail is right at the top – it’s one of those movies I watch over and over and love looking at her apartment. What a fun post!
