Roping Up Some Christmas Spirit

Knott’s Merry Farm is in full swing at Knott’s Berry Farm, and over the weekend a group of my gal pals (plus Patrick) and I went to enjoy all of the sights and shows. I’ve wanted a steer head jacket for years now, but they aren’t exactly a dime a dozen. The first one I […]

Cowgirl Coven

With the move, we’ve been unable to really do anything for Halloween at the house, which is a bummer, as I adore Halloween! So I’ve been trying to squeeze in visits to Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm to enjoy their Halloween festivities as much as possible. Over the weekend we did just that with a […]

Spooky Hillbilly Chic

We’re almost all moved into our new house, meaning we almost have all of our stuff over at the house! But we are far from settled! We’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to blog about an outfit I wore a week and a half ago! Normally I like to blog within three days […]

Spooky Saturday

Saturday was the first day of “Spooky Farm” at Knott’s Berry Farm. Spooky Farm is Knott’s Berry Farm’s kid friendly event, happening every weekend during October, and it allows for kids to dress up and trick-or-treat within Ghost Town, take part in a costume contest, and more. For me, even though I can’t do any […]

These Boots Were Made for Walkin’

Last weekend Knott’s Berry Farm’s interactive guest experience Ghost Town Alive came to a close. The summer event was like a three month long, family friendly version of Westworld, and I enjoyed getting super dressed up for visits. I originally had much grander outfits planned for visiting during the last couple of days, but humidity […]

Charm Bracelet Collection Vol. 1

Many of you know I have a rather large charm bracelet collection, and when I asked what y’all would like to see on the blog, I had many requests for my charm bracelet collection. Since then, I’ve been debating on how to go about doing this, because I have so many, and ultimately decided to […]

Cowgirl in Black

Before I get to the body of this post, I need to say a few things. For the last few days, I have had difficulty functioning. The current happenings in the United States are deplorable, disgusting, and heartbreaking. As of late, I feel as if my blog is very shallow and of little importance. Especially […]

Stagecoach Ride

I love it when you have accessories that match and just come together and create a themed ensemble, which is what happened over the weekend at Knott’s Berry Farm. Inspired by my vintage stagecoach skirt and Knott’s Berry Farm’s stagecoach, I created a parasol featuring a Knott’s stagecoach. Outfit Peasant Top: Pinup Girl Clothing Skirt: Mystique […]

Independence Day

Without getting too political, the last couple days have been rough, culminating in yesterday, with Independence Day. I’ve been getting back in touch with my love of the American Revolution, and recently took a quick visit to the replica of Independence Hall at Knott’s Berry Farm. Some of you may recall my visit last July, […]

Jackalope Jamboree

Some of you may already know of my love of the mythical creature the jackalope, so it was no surprise when Erstwilder released a jackalope brooch I just had to get my hands on one! Now unlike so many of my vintage loving friends, I’m actually not the biggest fan of Erstwilder’s stuff, as I […]

Yeehaw! Saturday at Knott’s

As mentioned in my last Knott’s Berry Farm post, lots of visits are planned this summer, because Ghost Town Alive is just too much fun. So over the weekend, Patrick and I went for the day. We’ve been having a bit of “June Gloom” recently, but I didn’t mind the mild weather, as it worked […]

The Return of Ghost Town Alive

Last summer, Knott’s Berry Farm did something that was nothing short of magical, and something I gushed about repeatedly here on the blog, Ghost Town Alive. If you were ever a fan of the original film Westworld, or have been caught up in HBO’s reimagining of the 1973 film, it’s easy to relate Ghost Town […]

Knott’s Preserved

By now it’s no secret I have fallen head over cowboy boots in love with Knott’s Berry Farm. The literal farm turned theme park has one of the most unique, interesting, and classic American dream stories that there is. The book that helps tell that story best is Knott’s Preserved: From Boysenberry to Theme Park, […]

Mad for Boysenberry!

For Easter Sunday, Patrick and I returned to Knott’s Berry Farm to enjoy the sights, sounds, and treats of Boysenberry Festival again. I also finally finished my boysenberry parasol! During Boysenberry Festival I had the absolute pleasure of meeting J. Eric Lynxwiler, one of the authors of Knott’s Preserved, an amazing book about the history […]

Birthday Cowgirl

It’s my birthday! And what a proper day to share what I did to celebrate my birthday! So even though my birthday is today, Dapper Day is this weekend, and I knew most of my friends would be attending that, I also wanted to do a get-together at Knott’s Berry Farm, which is exactly what […]

Knott’s Auction

Late last week, Knott’s Berry Farm auctioned off a wide array of items that once dotted the famed amusement park. From paintings to coin-op amusements to animatronics to even a covered wagon, fans of Knott’s could view the items prior to the auction, then try their luck at bidding in the live auction. We attended […]

Goodbye, 2016!

And HELLO, 2017! I’ll spare you reflections on 2016, and thoughts on 2017, because it’s all rather convoluted, and really not what this blog is about, so instead share with y’all what I wore for New Year’s Eve! This year we opted to go to Knott’s Berry Farm for their New Year’s Eve celebrations, and it was […]

Christmas Eve at Knott’s

For Christmas Eve this year, Patrick and I spent the day at Knott’s Berry Farm. I bought two Christmas themed string ties at Joyride (the menswear counterpart to my favorite vintage clothing store, Elsewhere Vintage) recently, and I’ll admit the other one is way cooler than this one, but I just couldn’t create the perfect […]

Christmas Gibson Girl

In my last post I mentioned I scored some more 70s-does-Victorian blouses, and I couldn’t help wearing one of them when Patrick and I decided to go to Knott’s for dinner the other night at the last minute. I’m all sorts of obsessed with this blouse – between it’s high collar and spectacular sleeves. I […]

During the holiday season Knott’s Berry Farm transforms into Knott’s Merry Farm with spectacular shows lights, and even a tree lighting.

Halloween at Knott’s

When it came time for us to decide how to spent Halloween, we didn’t hesitate when some friends suggested just spending it at Knott’s Berry Farm. It was a pretty laid back but enjoyable day that transitioned into a fun evening as the fog and monsters rolled in once the sun set. We didn’t get […]

The Jewel of the West!

Recently I have seen a wanted shift in my blog. I want to write about experiences more, sharing what I wore will always be an aspect of that, but I want to share experiences of the fun things that I’ve done, and the unique places I’ve been, such as museums, abandoned locations, etc. I hope to […]

Yeehaw for Calico!

Patrick and I just returned from our trip to Portland. I had hoped to blog while away, however I ran into a few hiccups, so now I’m blogging on events much later than I prefer, but better late than never! So before I dive into our travels, or other recent happenings, I must share two […]

Ghost Town Alive!

Is there ever something you keep meaning to blog about, but you just keep never getting around to it until it’s almost too late? That has been happening to me all summer with Knott’s Berry Farm‘s Ghost Town 75th anniversary celebration. Yes, 75 years ago, Walter Knott created his Ghost Town, using a combination of […]

Spirit of ’76

When someone says “Knott’s Berry Farm” a lot comes to mind… Boysenberries of course, fried chicken, the infamous Ghost Town created because of the massive lines for said famous chicken, and perhaps Peanuts characters. What may not immediately spring to mind though is the Liberty Bell or Independence Hall, even though an exact replica of […]

Knott’s Boysenberry Festival

For the last two weeks Knott’s Berry Farm has been celebrating its annual Boysenberry Festival. As a fan of all things boysenberry, I had to go! The list of unique boysenberry dishes was quite long, and it actually took two visits for us to eat all that we wanted to. But the fun didn’t end with […]
