Vintage Inspiration Friday

Old, vintage suitcases
have always provided me with plenty of inspiration...

and lately,
they have also provided me with plenty of space
to hide the things I want to take with us to our new home.

As I continue to de-clutter my home
in order to get it ready to be leased,
I will be filling them up
and getting them ready for the big move...

They seem to be a lot sturdier
and they definitely look better than boxes
when displayed in my living room...

They were good for many travelers and immigrants before us,
and they are still perfect for one more trip!
That's why I wanted to share them with you
in this Vintage Inspiration Friday....

I love your suitcases. I have a couple myself and do provide such pretty storage.

2 times the instead of boxes and when you get there,you have a coffee table, end table, night stand, display pieces, or extra closet space. Stacked suitcases are the best!

Every time you mention the move, I think that you must be getting so excited!

I have suitcases and trunks in every room to store clutter! I have one with all my old photgraphs, and it's so much easier when I want to find something!
Love yours!

Those old suitcases are so cool. Isn't such a perfect place to stash stuff? I've got an awesome vintage set of some, all cream, that were my great-grandmother's. They've been full of some of my grandmother's collectible dolls for years. We were just in the storage a few weeks ago trying to figure out what to do with the dolls so I could use them to hide the kids' toys in the livingroom!
I LOVE that old chippy door by the way! Will you be moving before or after Christmas?
Hope you have a super blessed weekend,
