I live in Orlando and I am headed to DC On Saturday so, I needed a winter coat.
We are going to visit Baby Boy who moved to DC in August, I miss him soooo much! His girlfriend transferred there and works for the Senate. He's finishing his degree in intelligence. It is not a degree in how to be smart, I wish there was such a thing!
My Mom and I are taking the Amtrak from Orlando to DC. So, I needed a coat. I just could not pay big bucks for one as I seldom need one here in Orlando. I got this little plain Jane at the thrift store for $5.00.
The coat is probably from the 50's, it had great vintage buttons, but it was definitely lacking something.
I found this great trim at Hobby Lobby
I hand stitched it round collar
Then rolled some into a circle and put a vintage pin in the middle
Now it looks like a real 50's coat!
Neither my Mom or I have ever taken a train and thought it would be a fun adventure. It is a 17 hour overnight trip, so we got a "Roomette", as they call it. I imagine most walk in closets are much bigger, but it does have a TOILET...Ya Hoo!
I'll take pictures of the "Roomette" and report back. See you in a week!
Have any of you taken a long train ride? I would love any tips or advise.
