may your road rise up

Two things I have learned.
1. Wonderful old suitcases make for a good show.

2. Special pieces make their way home with special people.
My fourth year at the St. John Vianney Bazaar was a huge success!
Thanks to you my faithful family and friends.
I leave you with my favorite Irish blessing.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

So lovely pictures as usual. The little bracelet (?) is lovely and the colors of the old suitcases make me smell the odour of old leather.

Beautiful treasures.

Congrats, Diane. I am so pleased that your bazaar was such a great success. Don't you just love the old suitcases??? Your rhinestone and crystal piece is lovely. You go girlfriend!

I love that Irish blessing and I love these photographs! I can so see how old suitcases would be ideal for a show of work!

Glad your sale was a success. Love the photo in the last post. I so want to start doing some fun things with my photos. My camera died last night so I will be camera shopping today or tomorrow. What kind do you use? I would love an SLR but, need to take some photography classes to do that so, looking for something that takes good photos, is light & will slip in my purse. Any hints... let me know.

Oh that necklace is simply stunning!!

I've always loved old suitcases. I find myself always imagining where they have been, the stories they could tell. *sigh*
