A bit of France- my luggage


Toile Luggage, just under legal limit for Delta Air. …lol

I found this large rolling luggage at Blair’s Jewelry and Gifts California, Md. . This store is truly amazing. Gifts of everykind, including fine jewelry. They will monogram almost anything, metal, glass and fabric.
I bought the suitcase several years ago, so I do not know if they still carry it.
Inside has a large zippered part on lid and two elastic straps to hold everything in.

My daughter was graduating from high school, i bought it for her. Then someone else gave her a luggage set. I decide to keep it and put it in my closet. I was looking at it this week and thought, that looks just about the largest luggage you can check. Well it measures 29x20x10 inches and can extend another 2 inches in front. That makes 60 inches. I think Delta Air check baggage is 63 inches. Now to keep it under 50 pounds. I will be a very fashionable traveler. White luggage, it won’t look this nice come late August. How funny…
Happy Travels…God bless Margaret

Luggage: Good luck with that!


The Dilema! Three weeks clothes, medicine, hats, hiking shoes, winter coats (95° in Md, 105° heat index today), art supplies, art carts, art supplies for the class we are giving in Anchorage.
2 bags checked free, 62 inches and under 50lbs. Two carry on bags. Hmm!
Well, to start Carol and I checked our luggage at home. That went well Carol and I found luggage that rolled(attic shopping). Hooray!
Now, the art carts were becoming a problem. Carol thought of having canvas bags made for art carts.
I went to staples for bussiness card case. After searching around for the card cases, I found the travel accessories isle. What to my wondering eyes did appear, large heavy nylon bags by Samsonite: Tote a Ton measure 62inches. Yeah, under the legal limit. I bought the last two bags. Now to see if they fit the art cart.
And they did!!!!! Now to pick it up! I will have to work on that.
Happy travels! God bless Margaret

Get comfortable! How this Art Expedition began!

Go get a cup of coffee and a comfortable chair. Carol applied for a travel scholarship, it requires that you plan your trip and write about it.
Well, Carol always makes the most incrediable presentations. She was planning the trip, every detail researched and planned. The award went to another teacher who planned a trip to Europe.
Well as you can expect, Carol and our family was disappointed. After a week or so of thinking and planning, a checking finances. Carol decided to go North to Alaska. Well, after a long thinking and talking, Carol decided to go alone. Soon after, my mother was talking to my brother Paul. Paul lives in Alaska. Well to make a long story short, it was decided that I was to go with Carol. What Luck!!!!
