So Much for 50 Degrees

Today was freezing again, but the more I think about it, the more okay with it I am.  I was going through my closet this morning and realized that there are still quite a few wintery pieces I would like to feature on my blog before springtime, so I can bear the cold until I've gotten a chance to share them.

This fur hat and collar belonged to my grandmother.  I have so many pieces of clothing and jewelry that had belonged to my grandmothers, and I am so happy to be able to wear and cherish items that had been important to them.  My mom's mom loved fur, as you can probably tell from this post and from this previous post.

I'm ecstatic about this little carpet bag I found at Buttons & Bows earlier this week.  I'm not usually a big fan of carpet bags, but this one caught my eye with its bright colors and adorable shape, and when I found out it was 20% off of seven bucks I couldn't say no!

  8. You got a great price on that bag, I collect carpet bags and have way too many of them.

    I love how the fur collar glams up the peacoat. You're lucky your grandmothers kept their clothing, I only have jewelry from mine.
