That Touch of Mink

More holiday craziness around here and I'm just scrambling to keep up.  Last weekend my parents visited along with their exchange student Kamila.  She's from Kyrgistan and has quickly become one of the Little Dude's favorite people.  We went to Longwood Gardens to see the holiday light display and it was so much fun!  Cold, but fun.  Here's a dorky picture of the myself, the little guy, and Kamila.   If you live in the Philadephia, Baltimore, or Northern Delaware area Longwood is so worth a visit this time of year.  The lights and decorations are amazing!  And they have a great train display too!

Okay so I know it's not for everyone and all, especially these days, but I really LOVE these vintage fur collars this week.  They're all from the 60s or even earlier and they are just fabulous. 

The first one is this early 1960s mod style Gray Mink collar.  So warm and pretty.  It's fully lined/finished with navy blue wool too! 

The second collar is a brown rabbit fur that's so soft and fluffy.  I do a lot of costuming for friends and Etsy and this would look great on a Henry VIII style surcoat!
The last and my favorite is this amazing curly fluff wool collar.  The wool is creamy ivory tipped with brown.  I just want to snuggle it!   All three are up in my Etsy Shop this week!

I'm hooking up with Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday  Head on over and take a look at the vintage treasures!
