I have project ADD


A friend of mine..........you know who you are..........got me hooked of finding fun old luggage. "Why?" you ask (along with my husband). Not sure yet. I thought I needed another project to "halfway finish." I am sure after I spiff them up a bit they would be fun for Sarah to carry her treasures . Has anyone ever painted luggage? How did it turn out........??

I have not painted any, but I have decopauged them using vintage paper. I loved the way they came out. One holds my daughters early artwork and another holds birthday cards I've received over the years. I first saw the deco-technique by a lady who was in her 80's and she lives in the Cays. She is now well into her 90's but I have not seen her in over a year. She must have had 50 cases in her house..what a hoot she was. I will never forget her as long as I live! Have fun with yours. :)

Hi
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Is it just me or do our 3 year old daughter's have an uncanny resemblance to each other?
