Vintage Travels

Wouldn’t you love to pack up this pretty little suitcase and take it on a trip somewhere?

Can I just tell you how much I love timeless treasures?  Even if they have no part in the history of my family, they still speak volumes to my heart.

Oh, how I am loving the rich browns, purples and greens this fall.

Sometime soon, I want to share with you what I consider my “style” to be and why I love what I love.




Take a look at this beautiful plaid blanket.  This beauty is heavy and warm.  Another yardsale find…


egg basket 1


One of my favorite things to decorate with are bundles of books…especially books that are uncovered.  Wrap them with a little bit of twine and there you have it.

Isn’t this is a great basket to put all of your eggs in?  Or maybe all your books…


I am really looking forward to the weekend.  There will be lots of work going on but also some relaxing time with all my family at home.  Hubby has been gone all week on a business trip so we are ready for him to get back home.


My sweet friends, I pray blessings for each and everyone of you.


I am partying over at :

My dad had several pieces of luggage like that. I think they might have belonged to his dad first, but I'm not sure. My brother had them. I need to ask Mom what ever happened to them.

That suitcase really sets my mind to wandering about where it may have been and the people who have carried it.

That is indeed a beautiful suit case. I love that vignette with the old door knob and everything, the basket and the book look gorgeous together.
Enjoy your weekend!
