Baby, It’s Cold Outside

29 Dec

Unfortunately, it’s not very cold here in the Northwest, with our average high this week hovering in the upper 40s and low 50s. There was no White Christmas this year and the girls complained about it continually. Having grown up in the South, where the regular intense sun felt brutal and relentless, I have and always will find snow and cold weather magical. And in the spirit of mid-century, I received an email today from Etsy, with some wonderful 60s cold weather fashion. How fun are these?

    Hi Brandy,
    I am still enjoying the blog and check back every now and then.
    I hope that Brett has recovered from his surgery and is mobile again.
    Happy New Year!

    Brandy – do you remember Nanee had a coat that looked exactly like the 1960 White Winter Swing Coat with the fox collar but her coat was actually leather with a fox collar. Good memories. I also remember her mink stole! It was so old and hung in the front entrance closet for so long that it finally fell apart!

      I do remember. They hung in the front hall closet. I thought about buying one but Ainsley would have a fit if I brought fur into the house!
