Foxy Stole Stuff

My oldest niece Molly was lucky enough to select me in our family Kris Kringle!

She asked me: "What would I like?"

I have a standard reply to this question, 

" Chocolate and anything with fur on it!"

The first is always easy but most people find the second more challenging...

Not so for Molly.

This what she came up with...

No photo's of the chocolate as that was eaten long ago but,

this rather unique fur bag to store my roll up shopping bag in!

And also the left over fur from this project!

Which was enough to make this...

 Fox Fur stole

 Thanks Molly!

This make inspired a few other Foxy projects...

Brooch Components:

I found this funny little furry fox head at the second hand store.
It's one of those things that either totally creep you out or totally love...
I loved him and wanted to see him have a more useful life as a brooch.

Here he is pinned to a little crochet purse that Tiff made me.

And here he is pictured next to my latest Vintage Winter Coat find.

I think they look good together!

Sleepy Fox wreath

Kim made me this little Sleepy fox for me.
He had been sleeping quietly in my craft room for some time...
Then I had a vision of him sleeping on a mossy bed,
under the stars and he is a lot happier!

This led to another idea for an old friend of mine...

The Shaggy Cow

I bought this Shaggy Cow as a keyring while travelling in Scotland back in 1999!
I used it for a while, then something must of happened and he got put aside.
He would turn up every now and again but I could never quite part with him and now I'm glad I didn't, because he looks so cute in his new setting!
