I’ve loved Twin Peaks since I was eleven, way back in 1990. I used to stay up late at night and watch it with my mum. I’ve always loved a good murder-mystery (maybe it’s the Scorpio detective in me, HA!). Like a whole lot of people, I’m excited there’s been talk about a Twin Peaks reboot, although yesterday when David Lynch (TP co-creator) gave a talk at QPAC in Brisbane to a sold out crowd he said “I’m not sure at this point if it’s happening” adding “complications” were getting in the way of things. So, I’m not going to hold my breath until something more solid is said. It would be very cool but, either way, I’ll always be stoked on the classic. I even still have my TP book, The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer, a companion to the TV series and chronicling Laura’s thoughts from her twelfth birthday to the days leading up to her death… my copy’s dog-eared pages highlighting all the raunchy bits of the story my pubescent mind was fascinated by, LOL!
Scrolling through my Facebook feed this morning reading everyone’s recaps and excitement that they got to see David Lynch in the flesh yesterday, I came across an exciting post from Hungry Designs! I’ve been a big fan of HD wearable art accessories for a while now, I interviewed the fantastic woman – Amanda Whitelaw – behind it back in 2011. The reason for the excitement? Amanda has designed and illustrated (hand drawn & coloured) a collection of Twin Peaks brooches, a neat keychain and earrings! They’re laser cut out of wood.
Behold these beauties:
To see the entire TWIN PEAKS collection and to GET your hands on the treasures go to HD etsy store: HUNGRY DESIGNS. You won’t find them anywhere else!

PS – I cannot wait to check out the David Lynch: Between Two Worlds exhibition at GoMA! Details can be found HERE. It features 200 of David’s works and is organised around three ideas – ‘Man and machine’, ‘The extra-ordinary’, and ‘Psychic Aches’. Don’t miss it.
