Remix: Grandpa's Red Coat

 I've got one or two more coat remixes for you all until the cold weather ends. Here is my grandfather's red peacoat. I find it funny that I am able to wear my 6 foot tall grandfather's coat from when he was a young man, but I absolutely love it. The breastpockets, fantastic collar, and stripes make me as giddy as a grasshopper. Not to mention it is lined in this fantastic soft (cotton?) lining that makes this one of the warmest coats I own.  I can't believe I've only photographed it five times! I've gotta work on that next year :)






I have a full day ahead of me my little chickadees, the students have an early release day which means that I have to work two extra hours, which is always appreciated on a Friday :) I assure you.
Nevertheless I hope you have a wonderful Friday and a fantastic weekend!

God Bless,
KJA


1 Timothy 2:1-4
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

Your coat looks like it may be an Hudson's Bay blanket coat! If so, it's a collectors item and worth quite a lot. Definitely check into it. Even if you aren't wanting to part with it or sell it for a profit, definitely good to know either way!

Such a lovely coat and I love that it came from your grandfather! It does look very much like a Hudson's Bay coat! They are so classic and even if yours isn't a Hudson Bay, it doesn't matter because it's still a fantastic look and obviously quality since it lasted so long!

This is definitely one of my favorite coats that you have! I have a couple of man coats - they are just the best!
