I walk with my lantern and my lantern walks with me
I know it 's Remembrance Day but to me today'll always be St. Martin's Day.
In kindergarten the one day of the year I looked forwards to the most was the 11th of November. We would put on a play of the old story: The soldier Martin would ride in (on a rocking horse) and cut his cloak in half to share it with a scantily dressed beggar. Marked by his experience he would later lay down his arms.
As if that wasn't excitement enough once night fell we would walk through town in Martin's honor under the glow of our hand-made paper lanterns.
What better day to show you my new Tulle coat? I have no intention of cutting this lovely in half though ;) My parents gave this to me and I love it to bits. The fake fur collar is detachable too so there is room for remixing :)

Up there the stars are glowing and down here so are we.
