I took these photos last weekend, when it was snowing. It isn’t snowing today, and I hope it stays not-snowing until next winter! It’s very pretty, but it’s also cold and damp and I’m ready for it to be done.
But… as long as it is snowing, I’ve got to find a way to deal with it and look presentable while I wait for warmer weather.
For Valentine’s Day, my husband and I decided to reprise our honeymoon trip and get the heck out of snowy icy Massachusetts for a week . Our itinerary was simple: spend some time with friends and family, go hiking, and spend a few days at the Happiest Place on Earth.
Whoooo… I… started this post, and then I got distracted, and now I’m finally publishing it. Better late than never, right? And as far as I’m concerned, cardinals are seasonal at least into February…
Because I cannot resist a theme or a last-minute project, I decided on the 23rd that I totally had enough time to make a new dress for Christmas. I found this cardinal print cotton by Cotton + Steel in the fabric store in the morning, and by the evening I’d managed to put together a new dress!
I hope you and yours are having a wonderful holiday season. I managed to convince Doug to put on one of my novelty music sweaters for our Christmas photo this year (sadly/fortunately, the sweater is too short for him to actually wear, so it’s mine the rest of the time). We’ve sung many services, opened many presents, and eaten many treats, and I even made myself a new dress for Christmas which I’ll be sharing later in the week!
It’s kind of outrageous, but I’ve apparently been writing this blog for eight years as of Friday! Sure, it’s changed purposes once and changed hosting twice, but I’ve been attempting to care for and feed a blog fairly regularly since 2010.
Hello! It’s me, I’m back with another shoe review!
I got the Aspen boots from Royal Vintage Shoes at the same time as my other purchases, but the fall weather wasn’t really motivating me to wear them. But when we went to visit my granddad in Wisconsin for Thanksgiving, I figured they’d be the perfect wear-with-everything shoe to bring along for the trip.
It’s no secret that one of my favorite flavor combinations is chocolate and mint. When my husband’s cousins were in town to visit, they invited us go with them to the locally famous Langham’s Chocolate Buffet, and I knew I had to come up with an appropriately chocolate-themed ensemble.
One of the vintage items that was on my wishlist for quite some time was a two-piece sweater and skirt set. Sometimes in the winter you just want to wear a full-body sweater, and look good doing it.
It took me quite a while to find something in both my size and my budget—my large hips mean finding anything with a narrow skirt that fits both my upper and lower halves is tricky. Fortunately, knits are stretchy, and I was eventually able to snag this set in the most delightful shade of green from Lucky Dry Goods on Instagram.
Now that Rhinebeck has come and gone, it seems like I am long overdue showing you what I made with my yarn from lastRhinebeck! I actually finished it last winter (when these photos were taken) but kept putting off blogging about it. Last year I had much less of a plan going in, and managed to come out with only a single sweater’s worth of yarn.
