Ring Out Your Joy

Okay folks, this is the last obnoxiously Christmas-y outfit I’ve got backed up in the queue here, and even this one wouldn’t be quite so bad if I weren’t wearing it with a Bright Red Jacket! I just love the combination of strong jewel tones that aren’t cherry red with leopard print, so I thought…

Perfectly Purple

Every now and then, when my tip money is burning a hole in my pocket and I’ve got nothing better to do, I go to Salem.  It gives me a chance to get out of the house and walk around, I can look for pretty things to buy, nab a bite to eat, hit the…

Of Ships and Slippers

Every now and then I get something out of my jewelry box or closet and think to myself, “I’m not sure that I ever showed this to the blog!”  I feel like today’s jewelry is in that category.  I picked up the Spanish sailing ship brooch a couple years ago, and it may have been…

Early Autumn

Well, it’s officially the first day of fall!  Or anyways, it’s the Autumnal Equinox, which practically amounts to the same thing.  These pictures were taken last week, but fall is already well on its way to the New England area… which I find absolutely delightful after living somewhere that only had fall as a brief…

A New Direction

 Yes indeed, exciting things abound at the Hunting House!  In fact, it’s high time that I introduced you all to the newest member of our household… …. our new Baldwin Acrosonic spinnet piano!  She (or he? I’ve always assumed that musical instruments, like ships, were female by default) isn’t quite mid-century, since the Baldwin catalog…

A Sunday Return

 Hullo!  I’m only nearly a week late in posting these…. ha!  Yes, I finally have an excuse to get all dolled up in my best hats weekly… Church music started up again for me last Sunday!  And since there was a wedding during the liturgy I felt like I had to choose a particularly good…

Wisconsin Adventures: The World’s Largest Penny

 When we rolled into Woodruff on our way up to my grandpa’s place, Doug noticed banners hanging from every street lamp proudly proclaiming Woodruff, WI Home of the World’s Largest Penny.  So he asked me about it.  And I was ashamed to note that although I’ve been in Woodruff nearly every year since my birth,…

Cambridge Adventures: Candlepin Bowling

 Woo!  We’re back from our vacation and busy settling back in to our regular routine… I assure you that there will be many vacation photos in the coming weeks.  But first…. Just before we left on our trip, a friend of ours from undergrad came to visit for a few days on his way home…

Blue roses, tooled leather, and poodle hair

I’ve been inspired lately to try a sort of poodle hairdo, and it’s been quite fun and exciting… the humidity really made it puff up, I swear it was in neater curls earlier in the day.  Mostly, these outfit photos are about the fantastic Italian tourist-y purse I got last month, and which I haven’t…

Beachy Blue

 Hullo!  I hope you all have had a lovely holiday weekend if you’re in the US, and a lovely regular weekend anywhere else.  It’s been hot and muggy here, and after a few air-conditioning-less days, Doug and I decided to make a day trip getaway to the beach. In the subsequent days, we’ve fixed our…
