Keeping on my "cozy" theme for the month, I decided to (re)imagine a peacoat that gets worn to death.  This is evidenced by several missing buttons, some of which have even managed to leave behind metal hardware.  But, as the wind begins to blow harder and the cloud coverage is at its peak, I have decided that it is time to work some life back into a coat that was looking more than a little worn.

Amazing what a few buttons and some lively fabric can do to spruce up the dull and the drab.  Now, if I am out and about, traipsing alone in the snow, I can at least look fresh and green.  

Stuff >> shoes, tights, coat
Thrift(ed) or Free >> shirt, dress, necklace  
Me Made or (Re)Made >> mittens, petticoat (underneath dress), buttons, party hat, party stick
