Vintage suitcase!

We have some old suitecases...the cardboard ones the emigrants used to follow the dream of a new and better life...those which inspired movies of the neorelism and some songs of the first decades of the last century...

...new life...white paint outside...

















...a stenciled laurel wreath and monograms...

















...grey paint inside...

















..stenciled wreath and fleur de lis ...

















...a new item for LC and for the market we are going to make on September!

Hello Vale,

I don'r react so often as I used to do, I'm a bit tired from all the projects we have done here and it's very hard to come in a certain rythm after the holiday's .
I helped at school today , must work this evening and this weekend I have to do lots off things in the house , there's so much that's waiting for me to do ..........

Okay that was that............now about your beautiful suitcase , cause it really is BEAUTIFUL !!
You've done a good job with the paint and the figures on it .
Till next time
greetings from Gea

Oh Vale, what style and elegance, my first thought was the old cruise ships and a vision of the case carried along the stairs, owned by a Grace Kelly type lady with blond hair. Beautiful work, very vintage and your perfect touch. I love it. Thank you for sharing. Hugs, Margie.

Hi Vale!

I hope you have beautiful days!! Last time you said it was incredible hot, I hope it is chilled down a bit by now. We have rain, rain and more rain. I think the change of the season is finnaly now :( I miss summer already!

The suitcase is beautiful decorated!! What a pretty stenciled wreath!I also love fleur de lis, the ornament. I actually wanted to make a little ornaments for my site, but I never found a fleur de lis that suited me perfectly. They come in different shapes and sizes. The print would have been pretty on pillows as well, don`t you think?
I am working a lot these days too. I have a lot to do with my shop, the opening and also orders. So I use a lot of the days just sewing and drinking tea :)

Have a great new week my friend, take good care!

Hugs Aina
