Happy Spring & Vintage Luggage Treasure

Good morning!  And Happy Spring!  It is to be a LOVELY day here – mid 70’s and sunny.  Benjamin has an eye dr appt today so I will kill two birds with one stone and hopefully get the rest of my herbs whilst I am out and about.   I had a lovely, LOVELY time being away with Husband for a couple of days.  To spite the fact that he was in meetings all day, we still had some time to catch up with each other.  I of course shopped – too much probably.  But before I get to my finds I wanted to show you my luggage I took on my trip and give you a little background on it.  I was inpsired to share this from reading a post made by EllynAnne over at Apron Memories.  She too has a lovely vintage travel case.  Here is my set of vintage luggage:

This luggage belonged to my grandmother, Mama Tom.  I am quite sure it made many a trip on a train or two.  It is pretty beat up but geez it is probably 50-60 years old.  But yet it is VERY sturdy, the latches still are very strong and I plan on it seeing many more trips.  The inside smelled a bit musty but I just put a few lavender sachets in it and it was absolutely fine.  I also have two more lovely pieces of vintage luggage that I will show you another time.

Round Robin Update: The letter is written and ready to mail today.  YAY!

Have a great weekend everyone!

I love the luggage! I am glad you had a good time. ~Kelly

Wonderful luggage. It is like a set I had that belonged to my aunt. I wish I’d kept it, but yours is a much prettier color.

Looking forward to receiving the letters!

Mid-70’s? Are you kidding me? Wow, how lovely!

Welcome home, can’t wait to see your goodies. Love the luggage!

Stay Cozy, Carrie

What a lovely set of luggage Susan. I had my mother’s suitcase up until a few years ago, then I gave it to my oldest son to treasure. I just adore old things.
