Once there was a little girl who had a red wool coat and muff. She wore it till she outgrew it, and then it was handed down to some of her cousins.
When it had been worn by everyone who needed a red wool coat and muff, it was put into storage in a closet at Grandma’s house.
Years later, when the girl’s Mom and aunts were going through things at Grandma’s the red wool coat and muff were discovered in the back of the closet.
Sight unseen, I declared that if my cousin didn’t want the coat and muff I did.
She got a little nervous when I told her we were going to go out in the road. I assured her that I would be out there with her, there wasn’t much traffic, and the traffic that was out was moving slowly and I would keep an eye on it!
After we finished the ‘road’ pics we took a few behind the garage where I have some doors that I got right before it snowed. They are old interior doors and really should be inside somewhere instead of outside in the weather. But there they sit and they made a rather nice backdrop.
We weren’t out long, it was cold and the wind was blowing. And Becca kept saying the coat was itchy. But the red wool coat and muff got a moment to shine again and I got to practice a bit of photography and take some fun snow shots of my ‘baby’.
There is another wool coat that came along with this red one. It is a pretty, vintage plaid. It is a bit larger and would fit my Middle Girl. So far I have not convinced her to wear it and let me photograph her in the snow.
Do you like vintage clothes and using them for photographs?
