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.

no resolutions. . .
just excess baggage in the form of vintage luggage collections!
Happy New Year!
Until next time. . .
