Vintage Thingie Thursday







My Computer is up and running WOOOHOOO, so tonight I decided to put something good on here, I have had this suitcase since I was a little Girl (And my Little Girls have birthdays today and they are 24) so that should give you an idea how old my suitcase is, I have another one too but I will save that for another Vintage Thingie Thursday, this one is full of vintage linens as you can see. It sits in my sewing room where I see it every day, it is one of my favorite vintage things, love the star lining too. Go check out http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/ for her Vintage Thingie Thursday, there are lots of links to other peoples cool oldies but goodies too.

Sorry!! I do think I'll hang onto my little horse and cowboy sewing box. It is one of my favorites, too. Love your little suitcase - childhood belongings are among the best. I have a little suitcase that still has my doll clothes in it. Guess that could be a future post - thanks for the inspiration. Have a great week. Sally

I have a big old suitcase with vintage linens in my closet. I have collected crocheted potholders that are made in the shape of various things. I have some vintage books of instructions for making them too, but I have never made any.

Hi Jeanne, just had to pop over and say I like your deal idea. The one new for one UFO sounds good to me.
Love the vintage linens, and what a sweet treasure your suitcase is. Wish I had something that lovely to treasure. Big hugs for all the UFO among us, Finn
