As always I hope this post finds you all WELL & HAPPY....!
I've had this post in my draft file for a while & while I'm ITCHING to share my BIG NEWS with you, I'm a little under the weather so I thought I'd set this one free into the blogisphere & come back with my news when I'm feeling more like my old self....
Today I thought I'd share with you my LOVE of Vintage Leather Suitcases....!
I have vintage suitcases stashed ALL over the place....All styles & sizes ranging from the BEAUTIES you see below, to brown cardboard Globites, hard creamy canvas ones with stripes right through to retro vinyl overnight bags....I think my FAVES though would have to be my leather ones....There is just somethin' SERIOUSLY SEXY about their battered exteriors that I can relate to....hahahahaha....
This SWEETIE is a recent Hard Rubbish find....Isn't he GORGEOUS.... :o)
This HANDSOME fella was also a HR find from a couple of years ago....!
This AWESOME piece is a French suitcase & was a gift from Mr SVJ last Christmas....!
This little fella was a gift from a vendor at the market who wouldn't take any money for it 'cause the latches wouldn't catch....??
And this precious guy was also found in the HR around a year ago....!
Together....They form a tower of DELICIOUSNESS that makes my heart SING whenever my eyes rest upon them....!!!!!
Each one tells a story of hopes & dreams & distant lands once travelled....The scuffs & stains whisper to me of another life lived....I LOVE the way the old leather smells....I ADORE each & every one & could NEVER imagine parting with ANY of them....!!!!!
Do you have a leather suitcase collection....? I'd LOVE to see them if you do....?
Wherever you are, whatever you're doing....I hope you're having a FAB day....!
Cheers for now,
