Coat of Arms: Out on the Town

Hi, MetroMods!  It's my month to show the Coat a good time.  At first, it needed some time to get used to me, to establish trust between us.  We spent some time sitting and sewing, where its warmth was especially welcome on a day our building's boiler was being repaired!
On Sunday we went on a stroll around the corner to get tea at my local deli.  The Coat enjoyed meeting the guys at Samad's Gourmet and learned that a large English Breakfast Decaf, black with one sugar, is "the usual".
We walked over the the Cathedral of St. John the Divine to see the phoenix sculptures, but the dim light meant that my selfies didn't turn out.  Ah well - you'll have to take my word for it.

Today we met a friend from work for an afternoon movie.  While I was waiting for her, the Coat and I met a cuddly new friend in the lobby.  Several people came up and told me how much they loved the Coat.  Hmmm.
Because spending time with the Coat is something of a dare, it felt appropriate to wear it to a movie that is also something of a dare:

More to come!


  1. Deborah! I'm very impressed you had the courage to wear it out in the "real" world! Hehe. Ox

  2. WOW! You went all out! ;-) LOVE IT!!
    I bet it made people smile... ;-)

  3. "Coat" is having quite an adventure! Wonder what's next...

  4. From Wisconsin thrift store to a night out in the city. This coat has made it big time! Can't wait for the next installment!

  5. That coat is having the time of its life!! Love it!
