Friendship is Golden

Over the weekend my dear friend, and fellow blogger, Carla, of Tiny Angry Crafter, came to visit and on Saturday we spent the day at Knott’s Berry Farm.

Carla and I in an old wagon that reads "Knott's Berry Farm Ghost Town California" on it.

Me wearing a black peasant top, red skirt with a small print of pick axes, shovels, sluice pans, and bags of gold, also wearing black faux-tooled leather shoes.

I recently scored this spectacular gold mining themed necklace and earring set at a vintage sale I vended at. Gold rush themed jewelry is extremely hard to come by, so I almost fell over when I saw it, and couldn’t wait to wear it to Knott’s! It paired perfectly with my gold mining novelty print skirt too!

Carla is one of the best things to come of this blog. Years ago we met via blogging, and met in real life back when I lived in Portland and visited San Diego, where she lives, for one of Patrick’s conferences. She showed me around to her favorite vintage shops and historic sites, and we bonded over vintage, cosplay, and other geekery. She is one of my best friends and I adore spending time with her, and it was so much fun hanging out at Knott’s, along with my other friend Kaitlyn, as we enjoyed a day of Ghost Town Alive, which is sadly in its last couple of weeks! I have several more visits planned, which means at least one or two more outfits from those visits that I’ll share!
