Although I’m sure that I really don’t even need to ask, but just for the fun of it I am.
“Do you love old suitcases?
Come on, state your case and tell me why.
I myself adore them and wish I had more, more, more! Yes, I can be a bit greedy at times. lol! Think of the places they have seen.
Why do I want more? Just look at these two stacks from Country Living.
Now you’re wanting more too, right?
Here’s what I have so far. All have been bought at thrift stores or yard sales. This stack of three beige beauties sits atop an old incubator in our farmhouse basement. They use to be in our bonus room and the grandies loved playing dress up with them. Often after they left I found them full of outfits from the closet.
Don’t you love my little $4 garage find quilt. Not only did I get it, but a bag full of other doilies and such for that $4 price.
This stack of two is in my sewing room. The top one is actually the case for my old brown sewing machine.
The top was in such bad shape that I Mod Podged bird paper to it. The bottom case holds sewing projects.
This one was made into a small fairy garden. Regretting that choice. Watering it has caused the leather to peel off the bottom. Now down to the bare wood. Live and learn, right?
And here’s one waiting for a make over. Hubby actually sat it outside when cleaning the garage. Guess who will be bringing it back in tomorrow?
I have these 4 large (hard to tell, but they are very big) casters that came with the cabinet we recently bought for my craft room. We didn’t put them on because it was going to make it too tall. Wondering if I could put them on the trunk and have it be a rolling table. And then the question is, should I leave as is; or paint it? State Your Case!
You might remember these two that I featured at SYC a while back.
I just love the table idea!
Before going I have to show you the e-mail pictures I got from my youngest daughter, Kylee a couple days ago. She’s the one traveling Europe with her hubby.
Is this case not fabulous? Oh, the places it has been!
This is what the e-mail said:
“Mom, I am too much like you. Look what I bought in Hungary today. It’s amazing and it was only $15. Don’t know how I am going to get it home:)???”
Couldn’t think of a better compliment!
