Friday I’m in love… with old suitcases

23 Sep

I love old suitcases.

I love that they’ve possibly had lots of adventures before I ‘met’ them.

We’ve been collecting a few lately for a future little project. And I’m
always taken with how much more attractive the vintage versions are…
even if they’re a little battered, it just adds to the charm.

Through the joys of pinterest, I came across this ace upcycling idea
by the Oh So Lovely Girls (who also have a too cute caravan!)…
little fabric hearts on an old case! I would love
to see that going round on a turnstile!


And talking of suitcases… life has been a little hectic lately
(still wondering what happened to life getting dull when married!)
so I’m taking a little break to give myself a chance to breathe.

Hopefully I’ll get a chance to pack a suitcase myself…
or at least click my heels together and see where they take me!

 See you all in October my dears xx

    Oh I adore your little foxy monogram! And your shoes look FAB!

    I have a couple of old cases – but I still use them lol! When I need to put them out to pasture, you’ll be the first name on my list!

    I got an old suitcase for my last birthday – amazing present! Just need to find a suitable trip for it, and make sure I pack it light, it’s hard to carry!

    I love them. Old suitcases make great storage for clothes. I have a few in my bedroom! 🙂
