Hippie Harry Potter
Yeah, I married Hippie Harry Potter!
I’ve been having some adventures here + there, but I haven’t been feeling so well lately so I need to do a quick, random post. Oh + I started watching BBC Television’s “Pride + Prejudice” + can’t wait to get back to it. Here’s a valentine I received from Mr. Darcy.
Pompous + dreamy!
Anyway, back to the matter at hand. A couple years ago Jeff had found an old picture of himself + texted it to me when I was at work. My co-worker’s eyes grew wide when he looked at the picture + said disbelievingly, “He looks like a hippie Harry Potter!”. BWAHAHAHAHA! So true, as you’ll see in the following pictures.
Jeff in front of his trusty steed, his Westfalia – check out the price of gas + the Mountain Dew can!
For 10 years Jeff was a tree planter – that’s another post in itself. Maybe that was like his Hogwarts. It’s a crazy sub-culture full of hard work, dirt + getting dropped off by helicopter in the remote forest! I want Jeff’s sweater + hat!
Jeff’s probably gearing up his van to go follow the Grateful Dead – yeah I know, I’m totally serious. Oh + yes, that is a unicycle lying in the grass.
When he was in his 20s, Jeff used to make incredible leather work. Vests, jackets, chaps, purses – his work was used in Shanghai Noon + lots of other western features. I wish he still worked with leather! He’s so talented!
Get a load of this picture. This is the creme de la creme. This is no joke. I almost peed my pants when he showed me this picture – AMAZING!!! And he’s wearing one of the vests he made – complete with pleated pants! YESSSSS!!! Sweet! VERY magical, in my book!
My husband has always been the kind of person that couldn’t care less what other people think of him. He is totally his own person + dances to the beat of his own drummer – for real. It’s a quality I’ve always admired about him.
Don’t freak out on me Harry Potter fans – I know the lightning bolt is facing the wrong way! So now you know what Harry Potter would have looked like if he had gone hippie! Have a great weekend everyone!
The picture with the long hair & glasses…I SWEAR I felt like I was looking at one of George’s pictures from his nonconformist hippie days! LOL He’s got dark hair and glasses and his last name is Potor, so when George was teaching (I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP) his students used to call him “Harry Potor” (or, Po-Dawwg, when they were feeling street). Too funny! Nice leatherwork, BTW.
Wow, that is hilarious!!! Hippie Harry Potter doppelgangers!! That sounds like a great name for a band!

Okay does Jeff know that you put those pic’s of him up?!?! Thanks for the laugh!
Yes, he always gives me his consent before I post! Glad you enjoyed!
Thanks Shelli for those pics.
One of Jeff’s small leather pillows, complete with some tassels, sits downstairs on the couch where I sit to watch television. It fits nicely behind my lower back. Perfect! Thanks Jeff.
Wow! That is so special! I loved it when Jeff shared these photos with me – it’s so nice to see what he was like in his youth!!!
What a cool hubby you’ve got!
