WARNING ~ Road Kill or Vintage Fashion ?

Of all the many and varied items we get it is vintage furs that people, including myself,  always have on one side the most horror about and on the other the most fun. You may remember another chap I blogged about here.
I just couldn't help but think "Road Kill" with these guys though, particularly the one at the front.
With his little arms and legs still attached he reminds me of a cartoon character that has been steam rolled over.
Look at that little face.
The other guy is another story. I am still trying to figure out exactly what creature he is or rather was. He seems a mixture of goat/sheep/dog ??? I am not sure either if his brown tips are original or dyed.

They have both made their way over to The Woolloongabba Antique Centre. When I took them over every person that passed them by stopped to laugh or try them on with their friends and do a bit of a fashion show. One mother spent ages explaining to her wide eyed children how they had once been... "little animals...see there little legs and look there is his little ears...and ladies would wear them like this." She draped it around her shoulders. I am not sure if the children were traumatised or intrigued by her explanation and modelling but their eyes were as big as saucers and they stood transfixed, on the spot.
 Hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Sorry I have been a bit slack on visiting everyone, my youngest trouble maker is not well, still deciding if a hospital visit is on the cards, fingers crossed for me and her that it's not. 


  1. I hope your youngest gets better and she doesn't need to go to hospital. Though sometimes it's a relief to have the burden shared by doctors and nurses ... either way, I hope she gets better.

    I'm not sure I could ever wear one of those creatures. Having said that, my mother has a mink coat from the late 60s which I like to caress!

    Kisses to your littlest troublemaker.xo

  2. Hope your young one is better soon its awful when they get sick.
    I have one vintage animal stole (have had others I have sold) and one rabbit fur jacket I will keep them both.Dont think I could do that fluffy white one could be a sheep dog ewwww lol

  3. Fingers crossed for your youngster, poor thing.
    Speaking of poor crickey, they're a tragic looking couple. The unidentified one looks a bit like a stretched out poodle!!!
    They totally freak me out :)

  4. Definitely road kill,amazing pieces. Hope your "youngest trouble maker" gets better and doesn't pass anything on.

  5. Poor Lotte. I hope she gets better. Take it easy, guys.
    p.s You should name those furry dudes - Wile.E. Coyote has to be one of the names.

  6. HI Katherine, fingers crossed for your little girl. While I do have a vintage suede coat with a fur collar, I draw the line to wearing anything with a face. Take care. xx

  7. They look a bit scary! I hope your daughter is feeling better soon. ;-)

  8. Hmm that eyeless one is a bit freaky! I love fur though and have quite a few. Best wishes for your little one.xx.

  9. yep wearing anything with a face just doesnt cut it with me. Its amazing what people used to consider fashionable!!
    Hope you have crossed off the hospital visit

  10. Sending love and hugs for your munchkin to feel better! Those stoles are a bit creepy!!!! I be someone would love them though! X

  11. eeeewwwww!! Oh my goodness they are ugly...sorry but I can't imagine wearing them ever and I won't be showing my children they are already traumatised about a zebra rug they saw at Mt Tambourine...really upset them...yes won't be showing them your latest fashion accessories! heehee
    I do hope your youngest darling gets better quickly..nothing worrying!.
    take care, talk soon,
    Kiss Noises Linda

  12. Hi Katherine, I love the road kill pictures, sooo funny!

    Isn't the second one the most peculiar looking creature?? I think the fox is gorgeous with his little face.

    I hope your daughter is feeling better and a trip to the hospital was not called for,

    thoughts from down south, Tam x

  13. I just can't like these creatures. They freak me out!
    Wishing Child 3 wellness, and a speedy recovery. We had a hospital visit last week. $230 to advise that it was the cold air making Imogen cough. It was worth it for the peace of mind.

  14. Hi Katherine, wow, my nan [ passed] was obsessed with real fur. When she died we found loads of strange things. We ended up selling them all on ebay. I must say, I was glad to see them go. Have a great week. I am working Friday if you are around pop down for a hug and a chat! xx

  15. That poodle one is a bit scarey! Hope everything is ok.
