excessive baggage

What is this you ask?

This is my luggage, about three hours into an excruciating process to make my luggage completely awesome, albeit in an over the top and ridiculous way. I acquired a pair of plum suitcases from a friend (sent the feelers out there, thinking 'I would like to have a suitcase' and a week later, said friend hear me say I wanted a suitcase and said she had a set she had replaced that was going to the goodwill and WAM! there's a suitcase, actually two really, for me to play with and decorate to my hearts content) and since they were free (love that) I didn't feel any qualms with the possibility that my playing around could result in totally messing them up. So I pulled out some fabric paint and and covered the larger on in a nice yellow color. It still looked a little messy and like a kid had gotten a hold of a parents suitcase and gone to town with their paint kit however, so I felt, naturally enough, that it was still in need of something more. And I had purple puff paint so......

.....and I so began to add some decoration with some puff paint (a supply I always seem to have handy-it is so easy to apply to whatever surface) and it just escalated from there.

Until (roughly 70 hours later) it looked something like this.

I know it is, um, a little too much, but well, I like things that are over the top.

And this means I will NEVER have difficulty recognizing which suitcase is mine on the baggage carousel!
And here's another travel photo. One showcasing my lovely bracelet tan which I acquired from being in summer for six months (I know, my life was soooooo difficult) which is sort of sweet and comforting to think about now, with this much shorter length summer now behind me and a fall stretching out in front, full of, oh I don't know, pie and baking bread and cozy home diy projects and maybe perhaps some canning? We will see.
