In the meantime, something that is cheering me up immensely is my new-to-me vintage coat. I have been looking for a coat for years, getting through winter with all sorts of not-quite-warm-enough jackets. Not any more! I was actually searching for dresses, not coats, on etsy, when this one popped up… meant to be!
The thing is, it looks like we’ll be wearing summery things for at least another week yet, so I won’t get to enjoy wearing this coat for a bit. Instead I can look forward to it... and sew the bottom button back on! It goes very well with the scarf I got for Autumn (which is halfway over already!) and I might just have a vintage collar or two for when it gets really cold.
Finally, a picture of a dead butterfly I found near my house. Completely unrelated bar the colours, but it's really quite beautiful.
