sorry, dora

I took Henry with me on a scout for vintage sheets and pretty wool at our local Goodwill.  Within 5 minutes of walking in the door he latches himself to this Dora the Explorer suitcase on wheels.  His little hands gripped on that handle so fast, before I could offer anything else as a distraction.  He had the biggest smile on his face wheeling it around the store.   I knew we'd be taking it home and then promptly returning it to Goodwill before anyone got too attached.  Once we got it home, I took a good look at it and thought maybe we could salvage this thing with a little paint, fabric, or how about that Tokyo map that I saved from our trip 4 years ago...has it been that long?
I broke out the Modge Podge and voila!
Greta and I studied the map.  I was able to show her where we stayed in Tokyo, the neighborhood where she napped on my back while we shopped.  She found all the hospitals.
