A vintage suitcase




Well, I never knew I needed such a thing, but now I'm pretty sure I have a definite requirement for an old suitcase with pretty lettering.

I'm very jealous of Conversation Pieces' new acquisition, bought on eBay. I discovered her blog when she left me a comment - and it's one of my new favourites. I love finding new British blogs (us Brits are still slightly blog-sceptic) so pop over there and take a look.

I have some vintage suitcases myself (I use them to store my winter/summer clothes depending on the season).
But this one is just amazing! I love, love, love the lettering!

A few years ago I got rid of all my vintage suitcase - graduating to a "grown up" side table instead..sigh..I miss them and their extra storage now ...

I love the look of old suitcases. I especially find the imagination that comes as a result from reviewing one. Wondering who used it, where it traveled too, etc.

Its like a used book.....I always wonder who else touched those pages.
