Monday Montage

I have a thing for suitcases and old bags.

Alas I cannot collect everything,
but do have a few.

A real early alligator bag.

A fun 1950's Blue Suitcase
This was my mom's.

An early leather suitcase with leather straps

Close up of one of the straps.
Unfortunately I do not have the key...
Still wondering what might be inside. :o)

This brown beauty was my dad's.

Inside of it..little blurry. sorry about that.

I asked my mom if this meant anything and she was not sure.
Not sure if my dad wrote this or if it came standard.
Does anyone have a clue?

Do any of you like to collect suitcases?

Thanks for checking in.
Blessings to all!

  2. Yes, I started collecting suitcases early last year. I only have three. One is a very early suitcase like your leather one. I love the insides, lots of vintage satin and pockets and compartments. I originally intended to make dog beds out of them but my daughter wasn't crazy about the idea.
    I might still make them for our cats. I have the tutorial somewhere on how to make them over for pet beds. They're cute.

  3. Wonderful bags~ love the early leather one~ Wow!!
