The picture does not do justice to the silver sparkle paper and shimmery snowflakes. I have also been on the hunt for some old hard sided luggage to turn into dog beds. They are beautiful when done right. No luck finding some so far UNTIL....wait, what is that my husband saw across the street at crafty neighbor Barb's house? No WAY! A perfect looking suitcase sitting out by the curb. And here I sit in my Jammie's and sticking up hair. The trash man is coming soon too. Pressure, pressure, pressure. Trash man will show up soon and what IF I don't look at it? What if I am kicking myself all week because I didn't go look at it? Oh what shall I do? Get out the spy binoculars and really check it out? What the heck, I don a pair of sweats and flatten down the hair, wipe off the flaky mascara and run across the street to get Barb who is outside. The poor suitcase is perfect but frozen shut. Seems some snow got on it last night. No matter I will chance it. I run back across the street prize in hand coat flapping. I hear her laughing all the way home too. My husband says he has some dog crap we can spray gold too if I want some of that to go with the suitcase. Ok non believers I will show you all. I will post a pic of it when it's done. That is if it unthaws, does not smell mouldy, and the hinges work. If it does not work I will sneak it back across the street and set it back where it came from next week. Ahhh, gotta love shopping, you never know when you will find that special treasure.

Bargain shoppers all know this. When shopping for little odd and end things the local Goodwill store is the place to go. The thing I love most is the kindness inside the store. Someone almost always holds the door open for you when you get there if they are going inside also.. The employees always ask you if you need any help. Someone will always strike up a conversation with you if you are open to that too. I was looking for nice wine glasses to make some candle holders out of. Here is one I made last night.
