Suitcase Saturday . . .

This little suitcase has traveled many miles with me.  It has survived countless moves when I was a child.  It has held my treasures, my baby doll clothes and my secrets.  It has lived in closets and under many beds.  It held my jammies when I stayed with my grandma.  It probably came home with goodies from those visits too.


Now it stays out in the open.  It moves from room to room.  Sometimes it is showcased up high, sometimes on the floor.


It still holds a few of my treasures.

I'm linking to Debra's Vintage Inspiration Friday.  But I'm calling this post Suitcase Saturday cuz I'm so very, very late.

Have a wonderful weekend, my lovlies!

'The best things in life aren't things' - perfect quote, and one I'd like to use sometime if that's ok with you?

Such a sweet suitcase holding many memories.

Treasure indeed.

How wonderful your suitcase is...it has soul now, so many memories it has shared with you. I love that.
I do think "Suitcase Saturday" is a great idea for a new...event, I would join, and I am not a joiner person. Decorating old suitcases is one of my favorite things.
Suitcase Saturday...I like that.
