Vintage Inspiration Friday #21: Legendary Luggage

There's just something about
the feel and look of old leather luggage.
The patina and wear bring exotic places to mind.

Who has carried it?
Where were they going?
Romance or business?
Ingenue or seasoned traveler?

A tourist in France...

or on African safari...

vintage luggage holds a fascination for me;
it's an inspiration.


iconic trunks of a bygone era

In the cargo hold of a transatlantic liner,

...or in a sleeper car on a European Express.

...think Hercule Poirot and Agatha Christie

What treasures of lace and linen...
furs and jewels,
did they contain?

monogrammed with identification
for the worldwide traveler

lasting a lifetime and beyond.

repurposed for everyday living

A French trademark

I've admired these for years
... and thanks to my sweet husband;
I was blessed with a little vintage inspiration just for me.

Now to share some fun from last week...
