More Vintage Suitcase and Shadow Box LOVE

I"ve blogged it before and I'll blog it again...Suitcases...there is never too much to love about vintage suitcases. A few shots below of today's haul heading over to the WAC.


These two are my favourites today but I do like the style of the one below too

Kristen also took over these cute Shadow Boxes below. These were so popular in the 50's and 60's and why not I say. I think they are particularly fun in kid's rooms as a spot to arrange their treasures. From lego men to china figurines, shadow boxes give a collection a stylish home.

Apologies the photos are not good. Below is my favourite. I love the kitsch, cliche, mexican man decal.  Up in the corner is a little mirror. 


The paint techniques on the one above and below were all the rage in the 50's. Everything was at least two toned and edges were often highlighted in a different colour, as on the one above.
I hope you are all having a good week.
