Right now I'm reading an autobiography/southern memoirby Atlanta journalist Ralph McGill, and the night before we went to Chickamauga I happened to read the chapter about his early 1900s Chattanooga childhood, and how he would go to Lookout Mountain and Chickamauga looking for souvenirs, or...

So one reason why I've been so quiet lately is that Jamie and I have been planning a big Silent Sundays vintage hunting trip/shoot, and we've been getting stuff ready for it. I've also been a little bit sick, and also we've had some things happen that I won't get into here. It was a good/bad...

Photos by Drew For the holiday weekend we decided to get out of Atlanta and go visit Drew's family at their house on the North Carolina coast, and it ended up being the perfect start-of-summer trip. Well not at first–when we were driving to South Carolina on Friday night it started raining...

" It has the little white dresses and leather skirts and 1960s-esque staples that I liked so much in their fall collection, and maybe this time around the shoes and model aren't quite as cute (is it just me or does this model look out of place?), but that's ok. I love the 1960s hippie...

Bag: vintage, Ebay Sunglasses: Karen Walker Shoes:Swedish Hasbeens Bold Endeavors in Gain, c/o Modcloth The most fun thing we did this weekend wasn't really during the weekend but on Thursday night when we went to see my mom in the small mountain town of Dahlonega, Georgia. She was there...
