    Glamour

    I have been waiting and waiting to debut this vintage 60’s faux fur coat for quite a while. My friend Sarah gave it to me along with these two vest/cape/whatever things from her grandmother’s closet, and I adore it. But it takes a little bit of bravery (for me) to sport a coat with this much personality, and it just needed the perfect dress to go with it. And then Romé from Sunday Millie asked if I wanted to choose a dress to feature for the Dressember Campaign, since she’s doing it but she’s camera-shy, and I saw this and… here we are. Today I am pretending to be a 1940’s…

    The Perfect Dress

    I currently have a small stash of dresses never before worn on the blog sitting in my room. Some of them, I have had for a while. Some of them, like this dress, I found on my most recent thrifting trip when I had a little bit of extra spending money in my pocket. A very little bit. And one of them was kindly sent over to me from Sunday Millie in support of the Dressember Campaign; hopefully I’ll be wearing that one tomorrow. Wait till you see it; it is gorgeous! When I pulled this dress off the rack yesterday, I knew it HAD to be mine. This is…

    The Magic of a Good Dress

    First things first: I’ve been added to Firmoo’s blogger awards contest, and I would LOVE it if you could click through to this page and vote for me! You can do it once a day from now until December 14th. All you have to do is click “vote” — no registration, no entering your email, nothing. Just vote and you’re done! Today I woke up suspecting I would need copious amounts of coffee to make it through the day, and I was not wrong. Last night was one of the hardest nights Asa has ever had going to sleep; he fought bed for a full hour and a half before…

    Twanoh State Park

    I apologize ahead of time because this is going to be a REALLY photo-heavy post. We took these pictures right before I re-dyed my hair, and I was too impatient (as always) to share them before I shared my new haircolor. I had nearly forgotten about them! But I was sick yesterday, and I’m lazy today, so here we are, finally. I’ll try to keep it down with the pictures, but… a few weeks ago, we had this fall adventure in a gorgeous park, and I love so many of the pictures… so it’ll be hard. Twanoh State Park is really close to where we’re currently living, and we’ve driven…

    Bewitching

    Today, the weather is that perfect misty gray that always comes with fall here. It’s the kind of day you want to spend curled up in a chair with a good cup of tea, a cozy blanket, and a fascinating book – which I very much plan to do while my child currently naps. It’s also the kind of weather that apparently brings out my dark side. After seeing how enchantingly misty everything was this morning, I knew I had to take photos in the old barn (which I utilized yesterday as well, taking my brother’s family pictures), and I knew I wanted it to have a more Gothic feel.…
