I grew up on a small farm in Oklahoma.

A place where neighbors shared recipes for apricot preserves and friends enjoyed holidays together.

I started Dane Tidwell as a blend of the wonderful things I learned growing up and clean, simple, refined items from local artisans. My grandma’s decadent autumn mac and cheese served on beautifully handcrafted dinnerware. Classic family traditions and how to identify the best produce at the farmers' market. The timeless romance of a southern courtship. Brilliant musicians and where to get the best shave in town.

If everything seems a bit random, it is, but that’s my quirky, southern life.

Come along and enjoy it with me.
