On the Orient Express

Had I the opportunity to travel on the Orient Express back in the day, I would have had two wishes.



The first would be to have traveled with as lovely a train case as this one.





One must always have both her toiletries and jewels near at hand whilst on a journey.


You just never know what unexpected moment life may throw your way, and to be without hand cream or your pearls could possibly be devastating.





Oh, the second wish?



To help Monsieur Poirot solve the murder case, of course.

The orient express, what a lovely romantic theme! Now that would be a great idea for an art journal swap.
Love that case, gives flight to your imagination.

As always, your little stories and your imagination are beautiful. Thee traveling bag with pearls, gloves & hand cream takes us back to another time, right?

I got to travel on the Orient Express, about 20 years ago, it was amazing. It did take you back to a simpler, slower lifestyle. The colors and decor were unbelievable. I love your pictures and the collection of wonderful nostalgia. Eye candy for sure. Riki
