Vintage Thingies Thursday
I LOVE vintage thingies! There is something about them that inspires me. Just recently I have finally been brave enough (before I just admired and moved on, thinking I couldn't find, because of my lack of skill, the "right" place for it) to buy the cool vintage thingies to use in my home. I've also started using this vintage inspiration in my paper crafting. Today for my first go at Vintage Thingies Thursday over at Colorado Lady, I would like to share the beginning of my vintage suitcase collection.
I've always liked vintage suitcases and how others have used them to decorate. This summer I was lucky enough to find two at different garage sales. One I got for $5, the other about $10. Their home is in our office. I hope to add to the collection as time goes on. Until then they double as storage. The one on top hides nicely the yucky bills and the small office items, blank CDs, address labels, iPod charge cable etc. The second suitcase holds extra file folders, contact paper, envelopes.
