Zelda! Oh, Zelda!


Hello Friends,

How are you?
How was your weekend?


We went to visit the F. Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald Museum in Montgomery, Alabama this weekend.
The Fitzgerald's lived in this home briefly from 1931-1932.
It was interesting.
The home was beautiful but the "museum" was funky.


I am so fascinated with Zelda Fitzgerald. 
She was a writer, a dancer, a painter, a muse. 
I adore her.


Word is that we have two Fitzgerald movies to look forward to, The Great Gatsby by Baz Luhrmann and The Beautiful and the Damned.  
I love having movies to look forward to and field trips to funky museums.

"I don't want to live -- I want to love first, and live incidentally."

I love that you visited their (brief) home and it's now on my list of things to do.

How interesting! the house looks lovely. She sounds like she was an amazing woman. I wonder how many ideas for his characters came from her!

That's funny. I have read nothing about Zelda except that she was a nutter and tortured poor Scott with her infidelities. But maybe because I'm a Hemingway girl and I know he didn't think much of Mrs. Ftizgerald. I never knew about the house/museum and I grew up in MS.
