vintage: suitcase style

It is so cold here this morning that the water in the hose froze.  That's downright chilly for us desert folk.  I had to turn on the heat this morning.  All this wintry weather makes me long for a warm summer on a remote island where bathing suit attire is suitable all year long.  And if I were traveling to such a place, I would love to pack my things in one of these lovelies....

I bought a set of blue ones just like this in my college days.


 I love everything about this sweet case.   There's something about red & white together that makes my heart melt.

 These floral cases are quite the pair. 

 This one is so sailor-ish.  It's fully equipped with wheels & a lock.  Oh my!

I left one just like this behind at the thrift store this weekend.  It was hard to leave without it.  I was completely in love with its cuteness.  And I kinda have a thing for this kind of red plaid right now.  Sigh.

Dreaming of vacationing anywhere?  I'd love to know.

  2. Yup, a certain house in Arizona... :)


These lovely people had something to say:
