Not just repurposing, but BEING repurposed......" if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: the old has gone, the new has come." ~~ 2 Corinthians 5:17

I'm not sure what's up with junkers and suitcases, but we sure love them! And with suitcases come thoughts of --


Yup. Tuesday morning my two daughters and I are leaving MI and heading to MN. We'll be visiting the Mall of America, the Junk Bonanza (of course the REAL motivation for the trip), and any other adventures along the way. I'm excited to see new sights, to meet new people, and to experience new "experiences".
But no matter how great a vacation we have, there's nothing like the feeling when you get back home, walk through the door, drop your things, and announce "Ahhhh, it's good to be home."

As much as I enjoy vacations, sights, people, experiences, and just life in general, (and I REALLY do!) my life here on earth is just temporary. I guess my LIFE is on vacation!
"In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me " John 14:2,3

What an indescribably wonderful feeling it will be when my "vacation" is over, and I can drop my earthly baggage at heaven's gates and finally declare "Ahhhh, it's good to be home."

Peace. Midge

Hi Midge,
It will be good to meet you too. Two shows back to back is hard core... or just plain CRAZY! I also have to work Mon. & Tues. and we haven't started pricing or packing yet! Lot's of projects didn't get finished either. Oh, well... it is what it is. So, if you look for us at the Bonanza I maybe the one snoozing in my booth! Ha!

Love your suitcases, and the theme of your post. I'm so glad I found another friend from Junk Market Style here on blogger, I'm such fans of all you guys there. Oh, and I have a special fondness for chick incubators too! What a great find!
