Vintage Inspiration Friday: #53 Stacked Suitcases

Who could imagine that stacking vintage suitcases
could be such a difficult endeavor.
I've had a hard time finding just the right combination,
and I'm sure I'm not finished yet.

I've been collecting vintage suitcases for quite awhile,
but recently while working on the Master Bedroom
I needed some storage for books,
so my brilliant little mind found it's way to the basement
where I loaded up some of my collection
and toted it upstairs.

These two specimens are my latest,
as I'm really being drawn to the linen-y masculine look.
I have several of these train cases in my studio for holding art supplies,
but I knew any stack needed to be topped off
 with just the right little number.

Lovin' this 30's brass plate.

So here they are in the bedroom...
someday I'll do a post on the whole space,
until then just bits and pieces.

Wonderin' why one is backwards...?
well, there are a couple of slanted ones,
that otherwise won't set level.
Who's bright idea in the luggage industry came up with that one?

and one is missing it's leather handle.

Short story here:
Last Thanksgiving we were "babysitting" the grandpuppy (french bulldog)
We were watching TV and I couldn't find Vinnie.
Hubbs said, "Oh, he's right here chewing on one of his bones."

know where I'm going?

Well, it wasn't a bone!
Heck, it was my suitcase handle!
Well, I couldn't be too mad
cause if you think of it,
it was on the floor and smelled like stinky old leather.

Pictures are never good in here because of the low light.

and here are a few other images for inspiration,
all from Pinterest.

the perfect bedside table

And one of my favorite photos from my friends,
Meloney and Brian, from The Seed Box

And speaking of inspiration, here's some from last week:

 Anita from Cedar Hill Ranch 
has a hammock that I could just crawl right into and spend an afternoon.

shows us her book page walls in her Great Room re-do.
I'm a sucker for anything "book page"!!

Melanie from The Frosted Gardener has me all excited about
painting metal chandeliers!

And Faye from Wild Rose Vintage,
just took my breath away with this image.
Doesn't it look like something out of a Ralph Lauren ad?
(fab photography!)
Oh my gosh that scenery!!
