{inspired} vintage suitcases

This week I’ve been inspired by vintage suitcases.  I found this one awhile ago in an antique shop and I’ve inherited a couple from both of my grandmothers.  They’re all a bit dirty and need a good wipe down, but I want to use them for storage in my studio.  I’m not quite sure how I will use them, but they’re much prettier than boxes and totes, don’t you think?!

I just love how these old suitcases were made – sturdy and elegant.  Samsonite knew what they were doing and that’s no lie.  I would love to air-travel with this precious case, but nowadays the airlines are so rough with everything.  Each time I check a bag, its either so smashed that it’s unusable or it’s ripped.  Am I the only one with this problem?  They must have been much gentler back then, or maybe the didn’t pack in as many passengers at once.  Either way, I don’t want to chance it.

How about you, do you have any vintage suitcases put to good use? ♥R

    I adore old suitcase so much! They’re really hard to find in good condition here in Oz, but I have managed to track down 3 that I just love to pieces. You’re so lucky to have inherited a few too!
    Loving the dusky blue of the one above!

      The can be hard to find. I got really luck with the blue one pictured – it’s in fabulous condition and it was only $12! What a steal. And thank you, I’m so glad that I inherited a few as well. It means so much more when they come from a loved one.
