Some things that are making me smile...

A little cocktail hat I made... you can't beat bows or cherries!!

Good hair days - My hair is finally a good length. I cut it very short over two years ago; my hair is so slow to grow!
My new stole. I hope I don't offend anyone with this as it is real fur. I would like to clarify that I do not advocate killing animals for fur and take animal welfare very seriously. I agonised over vintage fur for a long time; my personal view is that in the 40's (date of my stole) things were different, fur was acceptable. I can't change that. I would rather wear this piece of history than let it go to waste. I have modern fur - ALL FAKE!!
Winter clothes!!
Pussy bow blouse - charity/thrift shop
Stole - Ebay
Wool skirt - jumble sale
Belt - charity/thrift shop
Shoes - primark (I do like modern shoes. I love vintage shoes but find it hard to find my size and often don't like how scruffy they are! I like things neat and coordinated; I'm a librarian!!)
Flying Ducks - I have a mid-century modern style in my living room and it would not be complete with out flying ducks! The ducks were from http://www.dotcomgiftshop.co.uk/
I am a very lucky lady as I have a dressing room. Here are my autumn/winter clothes... needs a bit of a tidy!!
What's making you smile today?? :)

I have quiet a few vintage furs, stoles, capes, collars and muffs some of which I have had for years and some brought more recently each is a piece of history therefore I for one have no problem with you wearing your lovely vintage fur stole it should be worn, and you look so lovely in it.
