Regency Pumpkin Tea

More November catch-up – my Mom and I went to Stephanie’s regency pumpkin tea and had a lovely time! Wearing my new Robert Land shoes with American Duchess stockings, and a vintage petticoat I bought a while ago – glad I had it, it was cold! Judy displays a shocking amount of leg!

Winterthur extent clothes and things!

Winterthur also had some lovely extent clothes and other embroidered pieces on display. This was a set of 18th century pockets which were *huge*. My hand is in one of the pics for scale. These are pieces that were once the border of an embroidered petticoat – I want one! This bag had slits on the side, just like a … Continue Reading →


Downton exhibit

I was lucky enough to get to go to the Downton Abbey exhibit at Winterthur again back in November – round 2 of exhibit pics here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/maggie42/sets/72157649439839595/ Round 1 of pics from May was here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/maggie42/sets/72157645030253726/


Winterthur Grounds

So the day after Vanessa’s dinner, some of us met up at Winterthur to see the Downton exhibit again and wander the grounds. I didn’t really have anything to wear in cold weather in the right period, nor do my knees do well with a lot of walking in heels or costume shoes, I opted for muggle clothes. Beth, on … Continue Reading →


So this happened last night…

So here’s a thing that happened last night! I totally sang with Guster. You know, no big – just one of my favorite bands and one of my fav songs, in front of like 200 people in DC. (Also the whole show was super fun and awesome all around!) Apologies for what is essentially a FB repost, but it was … Continue Reading →


Greensboro Adventure, part 2 – Paul McCartney

So when I last posted, we were going to try to surprise Janine with Katie’s appearance at the Paul McCartney concert. Despite the fact that there were multiple pay lots near the Colliseum, somehow we ended up in the same lot. We hid Katie behind everyone else, and Janine walked towards us apparently thinking “why are they all just standing … Continue Reading →


Greensboro Adventure, part 1

So Paul McCartney added a concert to his tour in Greensboro, NC and Janine and I decided to get tickets. Doug was kind of apathetic about the concert, so right away, Katie and I started scheming to try to work it out so that Katie could come in his place – and we would surprise Janine. Because of the complication … Continue Reading →


First Aid Kit

We were lucky enough to get a second chance to see First Aid Kit recently in DC. They played at Lisner Auditorium at GW University in DC. I was able to snag 4th row seats so we had a pretty good view, though not as close as we were for the 9:30 Club. A lot less standing, which was good … Continue Reading →


Sunset Eclipse

So a couple of weeks ago, there was a partial solar eclipse that was due to be a sunset eclipse in our area. If you recall, a couple of years ago, some friends and I went out to Arizona to watch a sunset annular eclipse. This one we were able to watch from the roof of Building 34 at work. … Continue Reading →


Pumpkin Patch

Here’s some photos from our annual trip the pumpkin patch. Some nice butterflies this time! Love these blue pumpkins! Squashes! Pumpkin pie recipe!


Ida McKinley dress

They had a new dress up at the Magic Kingdom Hall of Presidents (new to me anyway) – Ida McKinley’s gorgeous black lace pigeon-front dress.


Corn Maze

The second annual running of the corn maze! It was super fun except for the part where I got stung on the lip by a yellow jacket that landed on my hot cider without me realizing it. This year’s theme was the War of 1812. Alex and Holly doing American Gothic Crazy newlyweds! Group shot! You can see my lip … Continue Reading →
