The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

2012. . .Excess Baggage!

No New Year Resolutions here On Crooked Creek;
however there seems to be quite a bit of excess baggage that certainly needs to be dealt with!

2012 . . . Excess Baggage!

The excess baggage in this post refers to my vintage luggage or suitcase collection.

The baggage shown above is a Samsonite Train Case and Overnight Bag similar to the ones my maternal grandmother, Susie used when she traveled from Union Station in Kansas City, Missouri to Garden Grove, California to visit her youngest daughter, Norma Jean. Grandma Ford called her baggage her "grip"!

A vintage brown, hard shell suitcase with leather edges and a paper interior called an Overnight or Satchel.

Another vintage brown, Samsonite overnight suitcase complete with keys!

From t o o many Christmases past, was the gift of a three ~ piece red Samsonite Suitcase set. Each suitcase closed and then fit nicely inside the other. The largest, called the weekender; the medium size, called traveler; and finally the smallest, called the overnighter. The only remaining piece of my luggage is the overnighter and being in terrible array...I decoupaged it to conceal its battle scars.

. . . and sometimes excess baggage is put on display.

From On Crooked Creek. . .
no resolutions. . .
just excess baggage in the form of vintage luggage  collections!
                                                       Happy New Year!

Until next time. . .
On Crooked Creek is joining our dear hostess, Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday! I do hope you'll drop in and see all the lovely vignettes  from other bloggers for inspiration in your own home decor.
