Traveling By Train

While in Utah, my sibs and I frequented the antique shop. Frequently.



They had two complete sets of vintage Samsonite luggage. One brown set and one green set. My sis-in-law and I both quickly fell in love with the train cases. She with the brown and I with the green.




My little sister got Christi the brown one for Christmas. I went back later and got the green one for myself for Christmas. Everyone is happy. Though Christi is probably a bit happier than me because she also went back later and got more of the brown set for her. I couldn't get more of the green cause I had no way to get it home. She wins.

So that's the story of how this adorable little trunk came to be mine.




I'm using it for my sewing notions.




It does a good job. And has the best, old, dusty, funky smell. I love it. I just go smell it every once and awhile.

Eep! So cute. I also smell mine...Interesting.

Also, in a non-offensive way, have you lost weight? You look skinnier in all of these photos.

Also, the quilt is amazing. I may sneak attack you and steal it.

Also, could have put these comments in more than just this box. Sorry.

That puts my hand-me-down, plastic, freebie not-even-a-real sewing bag to shame! I want one!
