My First Train Case!!!

As you know I spent some time vacationing in sunny CA with my sister-in-law and best-friend-forever (i.e. sil-bff) Sherry Goodloe of GotArt? ...don't you just LOVE her blog!!!

Well, Sherry, my sil-bff, over the years has picked up some beautiful vintages cases. When I visited her they happened to be stacked up in preparation for the move that was cancelled for May.

If you have read my blog and hers, you are familiar with her unending generousity. As I was packing for my departure, Sherry was continually adding to my "loot" from my visit, throwing in things that she knew I would be able to use creatively.

The she looked over at the stack of beautiful vintage cases and said, "I oughta give you one of these cases", to which I replied, "Yes, I would love one".

Sherry perused the stack of vintage cases and pulled out a case. (My heart was thumping with anticipation.) She opened the case (she had a few item stored in the case) and said, "I was looking for that". She examined the interior, then closed the case and pulled out another, and I'm thinking, "that's fine, I love all of them".

She opened the next case and examined the interior, in excellent condition. She looked at me, put the case back in the stack and said, "I'll find you one". Meaning that she was NOT going to give up her treasures, but would find one for me while she was doing her "rounds" (i.e. flea markets, etc.).

Didn't she find me a beautiful vintage train case! I can't wait until it gets here!

I am so glad she is my sister-in-law best-friend-forever!!!

I will let you know when it arrives! Stay creative!
