In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

I bought this piece of luggage at a garage sale this summer. My plan was to store my nice wool pieces in it. But I could never get it to open without taking a pair of channel locks to it. I would take them and squeeze until it would open. I asked my Shug to work on it for me. He didn't need to.
Apparently, I just needed an education in opening old luggage. You simply put your thumb on the inside of the lock, and push. It opens...easily. Very easily.
However, it has an odor. It's that musty moth-bally type odor. I've washed it completely out and left it open, outside for a few days. I put a box of baking soda in it, and that little fish is a lavender sachet. So far, it still has an odor.
