I love this suitcase! I bought it at Tillies Attic. I have had my eye on it for quite awhile and was so happy it was still there after getting my first paycheck from my new job. :) Its in great condition and the inside is divided and has a mirror. We think its from the late 40's or early 50's. The great thing is I have the matching piece thats a little larger waiting for me now. I think they will make great display pieces. I know alot of people into altered art are doing some very pretty things with these old suitcases, but these are in such good shape I could not bare to do anything to them, but admire them. This is just a sample of the awesome things that are coming into Tillies Attic now. If you havent been in awhile I think you will be pleasantly suprised. In case you didnt know, for those of you in the Phoenix area, Tillies is in Mesa on the Southeast corner of Dobson and Guadalupe. The shop is open Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 to 5:00. The tag I added for cuteness is from my friend Carrie of http://www.noellegarrett.com/ .
I have been working on some new jewelry. This is what I managed to get photographed tonight, There will be more to come soon. I am finally on a role here. I need to get these on my site in the next day or so. I am trying to work on fresh new ideas for the summer. I feel inspriration coming from mermaids :)
This is a pillow my sister Stephanie crocheted for me. It is soooo soft and it feels like chenille. I love some of the yard they have out now. I so wish I could crochet or knit, but its just not my talent.
Well, I better get busy. I am making the most of the three day holiday weekend. I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th!
