In love with vintage luggage



After reading some posts on one of my favorite blogs, 2 GYPSY GIRLS several months ago, I totally fell in love with the idea of collecting vintage luggage.  These GYPSY GIRLS opened my eyes to so many creative ideas for using these antiques in my home.  One of their ideas was to find old train cases and re-purpose them as a display for treasured handmade books and other art delights.  After gadding about in my area, I was lucky enough to find some fabulous pieces that could make such a statement in my own sweet "nest".  I can't stop making books, and now I have a fun way to enjoy them.  Maybe you have some wonderful suitcases that you can put to use to show off some of your treasures. What fun to take something "unexpected" and give it a new and "funky" purpose!
