About

Who Am I?
My name is Tarah. I am a writer, vlogger, history buff, and vintage enthusiast. I live with my husband, Laurence Brown, and our cat Kafka in Chicago, IL.

What is Old Fashioned AF?
Old Fashioned AF is the place where historic concepts and contemporary principles collide regularly. I post recipes and topics related to vintage fashion and skills. In my former life, I was probably a home economics teacher. My British husband has also benefited from my cooking for many years, and now it's time to share some of my knowledge with the world.

Come on this journey with me!
It takes money to do things like experiment with recipes, create content using equipment like cameras, lighting, and editing/design software. It takes patrons to do these things according to my own vision instead of some corporation's, and that's where you come in! Please consider making a pledge right now so that you can join the party!

What will my pledge cover?
There are three main things that your pledges will help me create with:

1. Writing, Researching, Editing, and Collaborations
The bulk of the work I do falls under this category. I'm proud of my blog and love that many home cooks and American spouses have derived enjoyment from the few posts I've created. But what most people don't get to see are the countless hours spent taking pictures, filming, writing, editing, dealing with technology, and all of the other work that comes from just one post.

2. Growing My Work Space!
Creating content means utilizing the space that I have, and sometimes it's just not enough (yet). My goal is to create an active creative space that enables me to produce content that everyone benefits from. Right now I have a floor and a table, but with your help we can build a space that enables us to explore the past in a much more functional way.

3. Functional and Exploratory Technology
Wouldn't it be cool if I could try cooking on a wood burning stove top or create a tutorial on sewing an entire dress by hand?? I want to produce the highest quality content possible for you. That means ongoing technical upgrades, harnessing old fashioned technology, and a computer that enables me to edit content without a regular 'blue screen of death'. (Yes, my hardware IS that old.)

Bottom Line:
Imagine all the possibilities if we're able to work together to build content that appreciates the past while looking toward the future? Come on historic this journey with me!
