Wetplate Wednesday: Chill in the Air
Stepping outside this morning, the chill in the air made me miss my annual November trip to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It also put me in mind of fur. Many images show women in fur collars or cuffs. Thrift stores are a place to find used furs to recycle and make into new to you items. In fact, one coat can go a long way in adding fur trims to coats for different eras. My mother gifted me her fur coat from the 1980s and I have used it for multiple projects and still have a big bag waiting to be used. This 1870s ferrotype presents two women ready for cold weather in their fur collars and cuffs.
