Collections Week: Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket Coats
Last Week, Jessica surprised me with the gift of a beautiful blue Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket Coat. It is fantabulous and it fits me! It’s the same double-breasted style as my red coat. So know I have three coats, two blankets and a cardigan. That still counts as a collection and not an obsession, right?
I have the red and white blankets….I bought the red one in 1944 to keep me warm when I went to footballs when I went to St. Mary’s Accademy, Prairie du Chien, Wis. the games were at the nearby boys accademy, Campion. My mother bought the white one in Canada near Lake Louise
3 HBP coats – lucky you. I love them all. I have a beautiful and incredibly heavy HBP blanket in a kind of salmony pink. It’s the thing to throw on when the heat goes off or you’ve got the flu, or you simply don’t want to move all night!
I have a collection of Cornell purses. Have you ever seen these masterpieces? Check out my collection (I went on at some length) at my blog lagemoyen.blogspot.com.
