Shrug update

Greetings All,
I have been having a grand time creating shrugs out of the fur collars that I was given. I wish I could remember who gifted them to me so that I could say a personal thank you. I have been very bless to have so many people that have given me wonderful things and just love letting them know what I have done with their gifts. Below are a serise of shrugs made from a golden opposum collar (top two pictures) and a sapphire mink collar (bottom two pictures). Now I must create a divas for them to be worn by. Enjoy:>)

Miss Roxie

Greetings All,
Meet Roxie (below), she's my latest "Diva" and she an ancestor from the 60s who was the head hostess at "Boss Martin Bar/Grill" on the greater west-side of Chicago in the Austin community.

She's wearing a wine colored faux-leather wrap dress, with wine colored leather boots, belt and she has a matching clutch.
She also has a vintage opossum shrug for a bit of added warmth and around her neck is a multi-strand necklace of vintage acrylic beads from the that accent her ensemble just right.
