Massage therapist at Sweetgrass Spa in Little Five Points
Elizabeth has a way with her hands — and her eyes. She also has a deep appreciation for all things timeless, from Patsy Cline to vintage threads to time travel. Most intriguing, though, is her answer to our question, “If you could live in any movie, which would it be?” Totally psychedelic.
What’s the last book you read?
Daughter of Fortune.
What’s the furthest from home you’ve ever been?
Rome and Florence are probably the furthest — and the most beautiful.
What would your friends find most surprising about you?
I have a strange obsession with the TV series “Little House on the Prairie.”
Name one band from the past you which you’d seen live?
I would have loved to have seen Jim Morrison.
Name three foods that are part of your everyday diet.
Wine, almond croissants, and fried pickles.
What’s your favorite article of clothing?
Anything from my grandmother or Aunt Ruby. My favorite is a white, long dress that looks like something from the ’20s.
What would you do with $100,000?
I would probably give half of it to my father to invest for my future, and then I would deck out my house and work on my wardrobe and my jewelry.
Choose between the following superpowers: flight or invisibility?
Invisibility. I am so curious to know what happens in certain situations.
What’s the worst thing someone can do on a date?
Tell me that he doesn’t have a job. I don’t even want to know that.
What’s your favorite karaoke song?
I don’t sing a lot of karaoke. But I sing a lot in my house by myself, and I love singing Patsy Cline.
What’s your worst vice?
Smoking. I’m trying not to, but I love it!
What’s the most you’ve spent on shoes?
I love a good deal. I found boots that cost $480, and I got them for $120.
If you could live in any movie, which would it be?
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
If you could live in any decade, which would it be?
I am really, really drawn to the mid ’30’s, early ‘40’s. Even though it would’ve been tough for a woman, it would’ve been fun to try and break some of those rules.
High school: worst year ever of living nightmare?
I would say it was a pretty healthy combination of both.
What’s the best thing in Atlanta to show out-of-towners?
I’m pretty impressed with my house. I live in the Cotton Mill. I always make sure people get a tour. I take them on a tornado tour! [Last year's tornado tore the roof off a Cotton Mill building and wreaked havoc in neighboring Cabbagetown.]
If you could change anything about Atlanta, what would it be?
Everybody would have a great job.
What do you wish someone would hurry up and invent?
What’s the most attractive feature of the opposite sex?
I’ve always been drawn to long hair.
