Vintage Suitcase


Yesterday my church threw a surprise party for a wonderful lady named Hope.  The party was to celebrate her 90th birthday.  I was responsible for the decorations.  We needed a box for cards and I remembered that I had purchased a vintage suitcase for that very reason.  Though I had planned on using it at the farm for weddings, it was perfect for a birthday party as well.  It sat on a table next to a large blue hydrangea plant.  The blue of the plant complimented the blue lining in the suitcase.  We had a wonderful time celebrating Hope, a woman who fears and loves the Lord, one that is an example to many.

Hugs,
