Altered Suitcase


I started a group with the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group,  this was not a swap, but a group that we create our own Altered Suitcase and then shared photo's.  I started with a vintage suitcase, that was my Mother In Laws, she was going to throw it away last year and I told her I would love to have it.  The inside of the suitcase was in really bad shape so I took everything out and made a new backing for it and added drawer pulls to be able to hang things while it is open, I use it as a display for my many collectables.  I had such a great time doing this.  Thanks for visiting me today, have a wonderful week.  Hugs, Terri

A Sweet Announcement and Beautiful Friends

Hello, I want to thank you for visiting me today, I just received the sweetest birth announcement for our new Grandson!  He was born within 24 hours of my father's passing.  It is our first Grandchild.  We visited him in Seattle for 10 days on January 25th, I forgot how small newborns are!  He is just the sweetest.  In the announcement he is wearing a hat that my husband wore home from the hospital 59 years ago and our son wore it home from the hospital 30 years ago, I made a shadow box when our son was born and kept the hat and sweater in perfect condition.  I also love the blackboard on the announcement.

I also want to share with you some beautiful gifts that some Dear Friends sent to me, Ladies you are just so wonderful and I will treasure your beautiful gifts.  I am listing these beautiful gifts in the order that I received them, Thank you so much.

The first one is from Rhonda , she sent me some beautiful supplies and a couple of wonderful charlotte dolls, Thank You so much Rhonda, you are such a dear friend and I can't wait to use the beautiful things you sent to me.










Then I received this beautiful heart from Lorraine and Marti, It is just beautiful and I love that it says hope, seeing it every day has helped me so much.  Thank you Lorraine and Marti!  You are both such Dear Friends and I will treasure your beautiful heart!







My Friend Dawn, who lives in England sent me the sweetest bunny, she made it for my Grandson, I have sent it to them and forgot to take photo's, but my daughter in law sent me a photo of him, it is just the sweetest and Nicole loved it!  She put his name on a heart.  I know she will treasure it and that Stephen will love it.  Thank you so much Dawn, she is also going to be a first time Grandma soon!




Kimberly sent me this beautiful ornament, well it is staying out all year!  I love it so much, I love vintage and I love all the beautiful things she used to create this baby stocking!  Thank you so much Kimberly, I love it and will treasure your beautiful work. 



Thank you for visiting me today, in my next post I will share some more wonderful photo's of our new Grandson, he is changing each and every day!  Hugs, Terri
