Howdy, friends. I’ve neglected doing them EVERY week, but here is another Cavalcade! post installment! Clearly this week I have moss, foliage, herbs, stones, castles, mist, botanical gardens, fog and travel on the brain. Plus, a few random images. See more Cavalcade!
I love the mossy color of this alpine puffer coat.
This herbal bath oil surely smells as amazing as it looks.
Plaid Billykirk bag, please. I love a dark, moody plaid.
I thought this Covet & Lou lookbook photo was pretty dreamy.
GIMME THESE CUTE BLACK BOOTS.
Just a stunning photo of Helena Bonham Carter. I think this is around Lady Jane time?
A photo snapped in the SW of France by Natalie McComas in Le Villeneuve.
Hello, lovely crescent moon bracelet!
The amazing garden and The Potager Restaurant at Barnsley House.
A fantastic vintage postcard of the Bronx Botanical Gardens.
A pretty dress from 6ème Galerie by lba Vazquez de las Heras and Menchu Mora García.
I love this dreamy look from Mes Demoiselles.
WHAAAAT. So cute. Blackie and Squirrely get a milk fountain at their Fresno dairy farm. 1954.
“…an observatory from which the view both up and down the Columbia could be viewed in silent communion with the infinite.”–Samuel Lancaster’s proposal for building Vista House
We took a little autumn escape to this weekend to attend the annual Hood River Harvest Fest in Hood River, Oregon. It isn’t very far from the city and the drive snaking the Historic US 30 is just breathtaking this time of year. It’s a fall color explosion and there’s waterfall after waterfall and lookout after lookout. It’s one of those places where for miles you keep gasping, “Oh, this is so beautiful. Wow. Did you see that??” The snap above is from a lookout we stopped at to see the Columbia River Gorge in all its glory. It’s one of those spots where troubles seem to be whisked away as you are reminded how tiny you really are. The yummy apples at the festival will make you feel tiny, too. They’re the size of boulders!
Have a lovely week, friends! xo

Oh, dear. I haven’t done a Cavalcade! post in such a long time. Here are a few things I’ve been admiring lately–as usual, some feel more attainable than others.
