Warm yellow time machine

I have always felt like I should have been born in a different era. Before cell phones, before computers, before there was a TV in every room of the house. The days when life was a little slower, but a beautiful slow like a trickling mountain stream. Simpler times, evening strolls after dinner with no fear, sitting on your front porch on a summer night with the neighbors sipping tea. I can't go to those times, or can I? It may just be clothing, but for some reason it makes me take a deep breath and a smile creeps onto my face every time I put on a piece of vintage clothing.

Recently my mom gave me a coat that she received in the 60's from my meme', it was actually the last coat that her mother bought for her. My meme died when I was almost three years old so I don't have any memories of her, well let me take that back..I have memories but I don't know if they are stories I was told or if they are things that my little two year old brain held onto. Now I have the coat, the coat that is the color of the sun and every time I put it on I feel my mom's and my memes arms around me. This coat is warm, it is fun and it is my time machine.

 Disclaimer: I was tired because I had been up all night finishing a baby quilt that I will show you this weekend, so please just look at my beautiful aunt and the coat... Thank you.
