I can have my popcorn and ice cream, too!

I have been eating popcorn every addition to ice cream every night. Aren't they the two best snacks ever?
I can't decide which one I would like, so I have them both. The ultimate in self-indulgence, right?

I get like that when I'm making stuff. Why only one coat when I can have two?  Should I have to choose between two different styles of ankle pants or can't I have both? Or why can't a girl own more than two maxi skirts, right? That's right! We get to make whatever we want!

My black and white Burda trench is about to get a lining. And I'm very, VERY excited about this coat. I think about it when I'm at work, take ten minutes in the morning to pin something or sew a seam, and race upstairs when I get home to get in a bit of sewing time before I make dinner. I just want to finish it and wear it!

Then comes along Spring Trench #2, which was a thrift find. And I am very, VERY excited about this coat, too!

Basically, the color is amazing, and it has modification possibilities, so....

I have already begun the transformation.

It will be fun to have both coats for Spring/Summer. Just like having popcorn and ice cream.
I'm reminded of one of my all time favorite Peanuts cartoons:

Snoopy is sitting on his doghouse, typing his novel. In the first panel, he writes: 
`Edith had refused to marry him because he was too fat.' 
Panel two: `Why don't you go on a diet?, suggested a friend. You can't have your cake and Edith too.' 
Panel three: `Mmmm!' thinks, Snoopy, turning from the typewriter and joyfully kicking his dog feet in the air. 
Last panel: `It's exciting when you've written something that you know is good!'

 It's exciting when you are making  something that you know is good. My two coats are good. And I'm excited.


  1. Two coats at the same time! How exciting. Both are stunning. I love the b/w pattern & equally love the shade of blue of the other. You make me want a coat;)

  2. Can't wait to see both of your coats, they will be amazing

  3. You're right - why not two coats! Both look amazing, but I do think that the black and white is extra special (just because it's such a gorgeous print).

  4. Those are two very awesome coats, and quite different so they will both be useful for different situations! That Snoopy story made me smile :)

  5. Its just not fair...I am lactose & soy intolerant so I can't have any icecream so 2 trench coats would be a BIG treat.

  6. The two coats are lovely -- and I'm with you on the ice cream. Not the popcorn, though. It is among my least favorite snacks; there's something about the texture that sets my teeth on edge. You can have mine!

  7. ohhhh salt and sweet...yum . I wish I could have popcorn., the hulls irritate my gums and seem to get stuck.

    I love the blue coat

  8. That jacket is great! Can't wait to see that in the market.


I'd love to hear from you! Let's talk!
