The Hippogriff Has Landed!

We are home after a wonderful week-long trip to the east coast. Last night we stumbled off the airplane in Sacramento at 10:00 pm west coast time, (meaning 1:00 am east coast time!) with a sacked out baby, and a rumpled and groggy mom n pop. And THIS wacky Harry Potteresque sight cheerfully greeted us in the Baggage Claim area...

Yeah, those hugemongous teetering towers of luggage in the background there? They were really neat, and off kilter with sort of a well loved vintagey feel all stuffed into a pleasantly plump bulging luggage trolley. I felt like we were about to run into the Weasleys at Platform Nine and Three Quarters, and oddly enough, in my world, that's a comforting thought.

Here is the artist's website. But unfortunately I feel his picture really doesn't do it justice, see...

Lack of perspective maybe? Dunno, anywhoo, just wanted to thank the random Flickr member who took the picture, D.L. for capturing the warm and homey feel they add to a boring old baggage claim area!

And Yay! we're home. I'll try to get some trip pics up tomorrow!

no idea why the artist's picture is cut in half...

I was wondering where you have been. Glad you're home safe and sound in the Muggle world.

It was a GREAT visit! Jackson rules! And all the kiddies together at Rob and Talley's was the greatest in many a year!

Love,
