Red Coats and Fur!

Longing for a Red Coat!
here's some favorites I've come across

Red Coat with Fur Trim

I had fun making doll clothes for Christmas gifts.
Coats and hats made from felted wool sweaters
{aka: shrunken wool}

... Oh my.  For Us Grown Up Dolls ...

And Little Girl's Dolls Need Red Furry Coats Too 

Love this coat

Soft Furry Wool Sweaters and Hats With Red Trim
Are Perfect for Winter 

Would You love to Wrap Up In This?!?
{I would!}

And a White Furry Sweater With Red Tulle Skirt is Quite Glamorous!

How Can I Not Have A Red Winter Coat?
{I have quite a collection of coats but not one red one anymore!}

And Fur Stoles Can Warm a Snowy Day

Which Red Coat Would You Choose?
I Love Them All!

Here's Another Mink Stole I Made With a Ruffled Edge
{although the same doll is modeling all of these, they are for 3 different dolls!}

Oh Come To Me Now, Furry Red Coat!

One Would Be Wanting To Twirl In This!

Red Coats and Fur,
Capturing My Heart!

VIOLET! You have captured my heart (but of course, you always do!) and you are prepping us for Valentines' Day!

You have struck again (as Penny often does with her magic) with your wit, magical handcrafts, and ideas. Those doll clothes; my mother would swoon as I am doing now, at the marvelous detail and clean stitching (not a trait of mine I have to admit!) and the genius of how you salvaged shrunken sweaters. The doll is beautifully dressed in your creations and is gorgeous!

Now about this red coats for us "grown up dolls!" (LOVE THAT!) I want that one with the white petticoat. My colleague at the high school would choke if she saw me in one because one day I naturally twirled in my skirt with a petticoat and she just about rolled her eyes into the back of her head. This coat would really make her wonder about ME! tehehehehehehhehe

Each coat is a dream. I have several fabulous coats, but not red. Ruben just treated me today to two pairs of new, a pair of knock-out short black heel boots and the other, a pair of very French looking black shoes to wear with my pencil skirts!

We are having too much fun today, aren't we?

Dear Violet,

Be still my heart! Such beauty to behold here... I just ADORE the first red coat with the rose on the collar, but they are all so beautiful.

I LOVE the doll coats you have fashioned.. What a talent you are!
Wishing you the best in the New Year... I hope your Christmas was filled with joy.

You have me thinking about dolls with coats now....

Oh happy I was this morning to open my blog to find you! And to know you were eating OUR yogurt delight as well. I was eating mine this morning with cherries and! And next time, I'm putting in frozen pomegranite seeds and that ever so good!

Thank you for coming to view my quick post, but I love what you said and it was a good reminder to me about what I want to share next, about how WE are now showing the younger ones how to party. Oh the fun and wonder of being human, non?
