Urban Prairie Rocks!!

Doing the New Year's shuffle of links over the weekend and revisited this wonderful blog!! Chris Brown's Urban Prairie Refueled blog is a feast for the eyes!! A fellow collector of junque, Chris has such a way with his finds!! Absolutely love his Crack Heads doll calendar. I have a bunch of pics I snapped a few years ago of doll heads and body parts while at the Long Beach Flea Market!! Great minds think alike!

Hope you love his style as much as I do!!

A Great Coat!






Why be drab and boring with your winter coat? Sure, it needs to keep you warm, but opt for a stylish cut with unique details.

Great combination of chocolate brown wool with unique trim of silvery gray Persian Lamb on the collar and cuffs.

Get it here on ebay!

Poor Blog - I have missed you!

Sadly neglected...but 2008 is here and poor blog you will be much less lonely!!

My New Year's plan is to rid the spare room of the excess of hats and dresses in case m-in-law ever wants to come visit (yikes!) The excuse that the room is full of vintage just won't do any more...besides I have good decorating plans for this room, m-in-law or not!

Here are a few to start off the New Year....all cozy, warm and furry!!


Big faux chinchilla hat


Grey Persian Lamb Pillbox Hat


Multi color Mink Tail Fur Hat


Mouton Lamb Pillbox Hat


Big Fluffy Raccoon Fur Hat
