I've been a busy girl!

I have this THING for vintage train cases. I can't explain it. It's like my thing for chairs and hampers. (what does this say about me, I wanna know?) Anyways, I got this cutie at a yeard sale for $2. I lined it with vintage curtain fabric, added the mirror back and a bit of millinery. It even has a vintage luggage tag, and the original plastic tray.'s CUTE!!!
I have one that I did a couple of years ago. I keep various yummy trims and bits and peices in it so when I go to a retreat or to a friends for a crafty day, I can grab and go. It never fails to attract attention.

I was in a swap hosted by Danielle at thevintagedragonfly. It was a 5x5 collage swap with a bird theme. I got mine in the mail today. It was made by Heidi Gordon. It's so sweet!
This is my favorite part:

I LOVE a good caption! Thanks, Heidi!!!
Next in the line up is a vintage journal I altered on Monday while at Paper Muse.

Still LOVING these doll images from Retro Cafe Art
You will be splendid!

Next! Two new shopping bags: the first is pink and sweet....

The second is aqua fun and funky...(I think this is my favorite!)

BOTH upcycled vintage pillowcases, and lined (can you guess why I lined them? Come to find out...when you load up a vintage pillowcase bag with wine and fruit and cheese, the fabric can't handle it, and it'll split and leave you walking home from the store clutching said bag to your chest to keep said wine from falling to the ground and breaking, causing you to cry like a baby in the middle of the road...forget about the fruit...SAVE THE WINE AT ALL COSTS...Just a little something I learned...)
