Last month’s vacation in the U.K.

Hi, friends! When we last met, I was bringing you a scheduled blog post on my birthday, while we were off in London! A much belated thank you for all the compliments on my dress and the happy birthday wishes! ♥ ♥ ♥ Since we got home, we’ve been super… read more »

Going out for a small joy

Saturday, Mel and I both woke up supremely cranky. There’s just so much heart-wrenching, close-minded madness going on in the world, so much to make you feel hopeless or despondent or pissed off or numb any number of other things, and too many people with their heads screwed on poorly… read more »

Two red riding hoods and Alphonso

Over Christmas when Mel and I were at my mom and step-dad’s house, I was lucky enough to get in some BFF time with Rochelle, who came to stay the first weekend of our trip with us! Uh, happy faces, anyone? This photo was taken just a few minutes after… read more »

Reflections on 2014

Happy (almost) New Year, my friends! It’s that time of the year, so I thought I’d do a reflections post. Instead of rounding up everything I’ve made (gag—not this year, I’ve made too much), or try to draw any conclusions or do a lot of soul-searching, I thought I’d instead… read more »

Thanksgiving weekend and holiday cards

Hello friends! I meant to do this post a couple of weeks ago, but here we are, closer to Christmas than Thanksgiving. And so it goes this over the holidays, sometimes! 😉 I just wanted to share a few photos from our long weekend over Thanksgiving. As it happens, we… read more »

An outfit to walk to the zoo

On a recent weekend, Mel and I had a couple of errands to run in one of the neighborhoods in which I grew up. We weren’t really planning to take any photos but as it happened we had along a little point-and-shoot camera. While my nicer DSLR takes much better… read more »

A fabulous antiquing day in St. Louis

Hello, friends! Goodness have I ever been busy. So busy that I can’t even seem to catch up with, well, about anything. We just got back from one road trip and here I am showing you photos from two road trips ago. Albeit, it was only last weekend. Like I… read more »

A wood watch and a lighthouse

Awhile back, I had the pleasure of being contacted by JORD watches to see if I’d like to review one of their watches. Wood watches, as a matter of fact. Pretty unique, right? I was definitely intrigued. Honestly though, my first thought was that I’d politely decline, as I had… read more »

Dublin holiday: what I wore and bought

I know some of you love architecture and scenery and gorgeous places, which I shared in my last Dublin post. Whereas some of you love outfit photos and a little bit of shopping. So this post is for you. 😉 Our friends Jen and Emma who came over from Wales… read more »

Dublin holiday: places and spaces

My friends, I’m back from Dublin’s Fair City! It was a wonderful vacation. Really and truly. Not a relaxing on the beach or hiking in the mountains holiday. But one where we planted ourselves in the same city the whole time (which we often haven’t done and thus would find… read more »

A day at the Hill of Tara and Newgrange

Hello from Dublin! We’ve been here just under a week and are having a lovely time! For the first few days we got to frolic with our friends Jen and Emma who we visited in Wales last year (they relocated there from Chicago a couple of years ago). It was… read more »

Antiquing, a huge pig, a garden party dress & Indie Untangled launch

First and foremost, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all of the wonderful birthday wishes I received last week here and across social media! ♥ ♥ I really did have a great birthday, and thank you all for helping with that. 🙂 To cap off my birthday week,… read more »

National Park Seminary adventures with Rochelle

Well my friends, we’ve reached the last post in the adventures of Tasha and Rochelle! I know, bittersweet, isn’t it? When we last met I shared my outfit post, and yesterday Rochelle shared hers (she also shared a preview on Friday), and today wraps up our trip with photos from… read more »

Finished projects for a fabulous weekend

Last weekend I traveled to the Washington, D.C. area to visit my mom and step-dad, for my mom’s birthday. You may already know this part from her blog post, or various Instagram and Facebook shenanigans, but I also got to hang out with none other than Rochelle from Lucky Lucille,… read more »

1950s wedding guest attire

Saturday, I had the immense pleasure of attending my cousin’s wedding in Santa Fe. We flew out for a long weekend and got to see lots of family (lots!), hang out with my dad, his wife and their two cute dogs, eat a ton of fantastic New Mexican food and… read more »

A week in the Northwoods

Hello everyone, we’re back from our adventures in northern Wisconsin! For the week, we rented a little vacation cottage in the woods far north in the state, about a 6 – 7 hour drive away. It was the perfect time, just after Labor Day when the masses were leaving and… read more »

In just a few short days…

… we’ll be leaving for the UK! And so I’m packing. (Pay no mind to the wall color, we haven’t painted our bedroom yet after a year in the house!) And despite my best intentions, I’ve not been able to keep up with the blogosphere, what with the bathroom remodel… read more »

Fall day trip

Last weekend, it was so warm that we decided to get in a small road trip to Wisconsin. It’s one of our favorite things to do, and this year with buying the house and settling in and everything that comes with that we’ve had very little opportunities to do it.… read more »

Sheep, alpacas and work

Well hello my friends! Long time no see! In case you were wondering if the earth swallowed me up whole, it did not. Not quite, anyhow. Over the last month I was involved in a project at work that we’ve gone through each of the last few years which means… read more »

Cabin getaway & recent finds

Thanks for all the replies and commiseration on my vintage hair funk post! It certainly sounds like it’s going around. Spring fever, perhaps. What I have now is sort of grown out of the middy-like haircut I got in November, but it’s definitely due for something. I still haven’t decided… read more »
