It’s been longer than I prefer between posts, but we recently had guests for the last week, and our car has been in the shop as well! So we haven’t been doing too much! Even though our car is still in the shop, I have been dying to get to Knott’s Berry Farm to show off the most perfect skirt for this year’s Ghost Town Alive storyline, so Patrick and I took a Lyft over there yesterday.
This vintage John Wolf print featuring gold miners has been on my wish list for years, because I love anything California gold rush related, and once again, I have a tale to tell from the amazing Vintage Fashion Challenge of Instagram. One of the prompts was “Missing Pieces,” and I posted a picture I had found of this print, among several other western themed border prints, and one of my followers, chewbekah_, told me of an Etsy shop that currently had it in stock! Not only was it in stock, it was in my size, and a reasonable price! I don’t think I’ve ever made a quicker Etsy purchase in my life! The irony of all of this is that on the last day of Ghost Town Alive last year, when it was announced gold was discovered, I turned to Pat and said “Wouldn’t it be great if I found that gold miner skirt between now and next year’s Ghost Town Alive?” And here we are! A huge thank you to Bekah for telling me about the skirt and shop owner Diana for selling the skirt!

Love the skirt and the theme We just spent last week at the California Bluegrass Festival in historical Grass Valley which is part of the 49er trail. It’s Empire Mine is famous. Some day you and Patrick should make a pilgrimage (if you haven’t already) up Hwy 49 from Sonora to Nevada City. Fantastic! Then over to Old Town Sacramento. You won’t run out of amazing scenery and historical sites & structures still in vintage condition for your photography.
That sounds like so much fun!! We’ve done some of the towns along Highway 49, but not all of them. And it has been YEARS since I have been to Old Town Sacramento! I’ve been dying to return!
I am so thrilled that this skirt found its way to you, Janey!! It couldn’t be a more perfect pairing for your setting. You look radiant! 🙂
Thank you so much, Tasha!
