2012 Designer Mystery Blog Hop

Welcome to my day of the 2012 Designer Mystery Blog Hop.




Well Kimberly Jolly and the staff over at Fat Quarters have outdone themselves again. Fat Quarters not only organized a fabulous fun mystery quilt but they will be giving away 1 Layer Cake™ of the featured designer each day of the hop. That's a total of 13 FREE Layer Cakes—PLUS the grand prize! Thank you Kimberly!


The fabric featured in the mystery series is Vintage Modern by Moda fabrics designed by the very pretty mother daughter team of Bonnie and Camille.

If you are looking for the definition of Vintage Modern you will not find it in a dictionary.
Google it and you will not find an actual definition either.
My definition would be to take something vintage that is classic and timeless and add something new and trendy for the modern part of Vintage Modern.

Our task was to find a piece of clothing in our closets that was Vintage Modern.
Let's review:
I live in an 1890's house.
No closets. (My closet is an antique wardrobe that measures just 5 feet across.)
Not even a coat closet.
Therefore I do not keep my old clothing. When I buy something I donate something old.
Sooo my choices were very limited.




This is a snippet of my item.

The item was purchased at a store that is called by a different name today.
The item was purchased 30 years ago.
Audrey would have only worn this with brown - but not brown diamonds.
Someday my daughter might wear this item.
Can you guess what this item is?
You have 24 hours to leave ONE guess in the comment area of this post



Whoever guesses correctly will then be entered to win this Sassy Layer Cake™ complements of Fat Quarter Shop.
Thank you Kimberly!

If you would like to sign up for the Block of the Month Club featuring the Vintage Modern fabric collection, you can do so here.

Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow the mystery continues over at Bonnie and Camille's blogs. (Two blogs to visit tomorrow.)

Happy Guessing.

From my heart,
Sandy

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  33. It definitely looks like fur to me, either a coat or a stole. I remember as a child, in the 70's, thinking fur coats were so glamorous!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well, if you routinely give away old clothing, then whatever this is must have been valuable enough that you wanted to save it. It looks like a fur (brown mink?) coat.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would say it was purchased at Dayton's (Marshall Fields and now Macy's). It definetley looks like fur to me.

    PS I live in an old farm house and I understand no closets.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It looks like a mink stole to me!

  40. A fur coat would be my guess. I have my grandmother's mink coat she wore in the 40's. I love it, though I'm living on a Mink Ranch!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I will go with a fur wrap, too. Five feet of storage would force you to be very disciplined with clothes accummulation - maybe I need to try that!!

    Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  42. It looks like a fur wrap - maybe not a full coat, but a short wrap like a stole? My mom has a fur coat.

  43. Fur wrap or coat :) Your rule of buy something new, out goes something old is great advice...however that would be extrememly difficult for ME to maintain......I envy your strength!

    ReplyDelete
  44. A fur muff to keep your hands warm :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think it is a fur stole or coat. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  46. My grandmother and my mother each had one of these and we used to play dress-up with them! I always loved that nubby, bumpy texture! Now the thought of wearing a mink or fur stole or cape or wrap sort of grosses me out! Of course Audrey could pull anything off! Such a classy lady!

  47. Everyone lucky to have something in fur can never cast it aside! I love your fabric lines..I get excited to see what you create next!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Audrey Hepburn wore a brown hat with a brown dress in the train station scene in the 1958 movie "Funny Face". She didn't arrive at Tiffany's until 1961, so no diamonds, brown or otherwise. Ms. Hepburn was not adverse to wearing fur as she became spokesperson for Blackglama mink -- so I think your item is a mink hat. Even a house without closets can store a hat!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  90. I think it's a fur hat- doesn't take up a lot of space, and it's (almost) one size fits all.
    I read some of your blogs, and will definitely be returning. I had those same glasses when I was a girl! :)Tanis

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'd say a fur garment of some sort too. Great definition of Vintage Modern!

    ReplyDelete
  92. It looks like a fur stole or coat.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I'm thinking fur coat or stole. a short one that comes to the waist or hips. Mink or fox. The store? If you ever lived in Texas, I'm going to guess Joske's or Rhodes Department Stores. They sold beautiful high end merchandise.

    ReplyDelete
  94. yes, it does appear to be some kind of stole from REAL fur! LOL

    ReplyDelete

  97. I guess a fur coat or stole. Thank you for the great giveaway and chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I would guess fur scarf or stole. As you don't have a coat closet, I think it might be smaller than a coat.

    Could be hat?

    ReplyDelete
  99. Sandy, I am sure that is a chevron style fur coat, and I am guessing that since we are both North Iowa girls, you would have made the trip to Minneapolis and purchased it at Dayton's fur salon, which became Marshall Fields and would now be Macy's. Thanks so much for sharing your great talent and gifts!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I'm going with a mink coat. It looks really similar to my Grandmother's vintage mink coat hanging in my closet.

    ReplyDelete
  103. A fur stole, coat or wrap of some kind.

    ReplyDelete
  104. A fur coat or stole. Love the new Sassy line, I'm planning my new project with it right now.

  112. Since you don't have closets, I would say it is something small. I can't imagine you're a fur type, but I might be completely wrong. So, I am going for a knitted wrap, which you can easily put over chair back.

    ReplyDelete
  148. It certainly looks like a fur coat, but maybe it is a cape?

    Debbie

    ReplyDelete
  149. At first I thought of a mink or sable stole - but looking at the image again I think it may be too wide for that - so I would guess it is a coat of some description (perhaps a cape?).
    Sassy is sublime! :)

    ReplyDelete
  150. I'm torn...from your clues I have two guesses, and can't pick which one to go with...so here's both: 1)a brown shaved mink hat (like Holly Golightly wears in Breakfast at Tiffanys or 2) a brown knit 'ranch house' like Holly Golightly is knitting (although hers is red)...either of which were bought at Marshall Fields in the early 80s.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  155. I'm a thinking it may be a fur hat...that little section near the bottom looks like it may be some type of ornamentation for it...also hats used to be purchased from Millinery's and today we call them hat shops! That's my answer and I'm sticking to it!!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
