Suitcase fetish


I've noticed a rather alarming increase in suitcase purchases and unfortunately none are mine. Fellow bloggers have been hunting high and low, snapping up some amazing vintage suitcase bargains. I have the lust bug but alas no suitcase to share it with. So until such time that I find a pretty little number that I can call my own, I will flirt with these virtual ones instead.

Fess up, how many suitcases do you have?

Ooooh, a crafty suitcase

a suitcase for fugitives on the run with a penchant for fluffy towels and fragrant soap!

 old suitcases masquerading as french shabby chic

old buggers that sit around gathering dust but look fabulous darling darling!


and my fav, the vintage pink suitcase that our mum's probably used for their honeymoons!

Can't wait to hear what lusty little suitcase number you have...

ooohh gosh! I have no idea, maybe 10 or so.
I do have a bit of an obsession with them and my 4 yr old said to me one day after a trip to the oppie & yet another suitcase to the collection "mum, I don't think you are allowed to buy anymore suitcases"...oops

so sad to say, I don't think I have any. and am even more sad to remember throwing out my beautiful old green school case (or port we called them)when I was in my teens.

Ooohhh SO MUCH love for that little pink case! How darling! You make me wanna start collecting... I probably would, if not for the fact my tiny house could not possibly deal with any more 'stuff'!

They are beautiful. I have a few and am always on the lookout but they are few and far between.
