What I Wore: A Look Back at my Dress Form Outfits

In putting together my editorial calendar for Blogtober 2017, I decided I wanted to put together a collage of sorts, featuring some of my previous dress form outfits. When I started blogging back at the beginning of 2012, my antique dress form was featured in a weekly “dress form outfit” post and showed a different outfit every week. Here are some of my dress form outfits from that first year. As I purchased clothes, whether they were from a thrift store or a department store, they showed up on my dress form at one time or another. Outfit #20 showed […]

Wanderlust Wednesday: Scotland

My friend, Marcy, has raved about the beauty and history of Scotland. In fact, she took her niece to Scotland a couple of years ago and returned with her nephew just this past summer. She fell in love with this country when she was in college, which may be one reason why her love of Scotland runs deep. Scotland is the U.K.’s northernmost country, and is the land of mountain wildernesses {think of the Highlands in the Starz series, Outlander, with the sexy Scotsman Sam Heughan}, interspersed with glacial glens {valleys} and lochs {lakes}.

A Night of Texas at the Ryman

“The stars at night are big and bright… deep in the heart of Texas!” As an early anniversary gift to my husband, I bought two tickets to see Aaron Watson at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. The show was called “A Night of Texas at the Ryman.” The all of the acts are all from the great state of Texas, and it was great to see these Texans perform at the Mother Church. Deep in my heart I’m a Texas girl, even though I’ve lived in East Tennessee longer than I lived in Texas. I grew up outside of […]
