~ Stack 'em High ~



I have always had a love for vintage suitcases. There is just something about them that makes my heart sing. I have three white ones in my house, all stacked up. I painted them all white one Sunday afternoon. I change them around constantly from room to room depending on what I feel like doing. Here they are against my white walls and shiny floorboards. The other set is from a friends house. She has left them as is and used them as a feature in her home too.
winner of last weeks giveaway chosen by random.org is: Sharon from Sharon by the Sea. Congrats Sharon, please contact me with your details.

  2. Lovely. I too adore old vintage suitcases. I don't know what it is about them that evokes such feelings but it's just there.
    Love your blog!

  3. I like old suitcases too. I don't own any but do have 2 old optometrist lens cases which I have stacked together.
    I wouldn't mind discovering a nice old Louis Vuitton case somewhere someday!
    Have a great week Simone :)

  4. LOVE 'em!
    I have a set of vintage suitcases stacked in my bedroom. Since my middle daughter left I have been planning on making her room into a guest bedroom. I'm thinking they may make the perfect
    nightstand!
    I'm always on the lookout for more when I shop at the local thrift store! So good looking, and great for extra storage!
    Blessings!

  12. I absolutely need the top round one for my collection. I love round suitcases and do not have one like that.

    I have the most adorable blue one and a white from the 1960's that I actually did use a few times for an overnight stay. Alligator from the 40's, gray...love them.
