Angel & Star and a memory of mum

Meet Angel & Star

custom cubs commissioned and created
 for Lynda & her brother -

from their mothers mink fur coat.

With matching suede paw pads 
to bring out the natural colours of the mink

Many mink coat may just hang in a back cupboard
until its eventually discarded, such a shame.
I'm glad these 2 little cubs have a second life 
and can be loved for many years to come.
