I love that it's beaten up and has labels taped on it from the previous owner that say "Winter Pants" and "Long Johns". I considered removing them, but thought they added a big of vintage appeal to them, so I left them. Still no clue what I'll do with this, but Jean and her husband went antiquing in Virginia this past weekend and she saw the exact same suitcase for $65 in one of the stores. Makes my $ seems even better!
I wanted to share a few projects from the weekend. The first is my new fabric holder. I found this cute little metal basket at the thrift store and added some green paint to it. I love how it looks holding rolled up fabric.
I also finally completed my inspiration board. Using a frame I bought at a yard sale for fifty cents, fabric I picked up at a thrift store for a dollar and a piece of foam core board, it turned out pretty cute. It sits behind a bunch of my thrifted items that I have painted. (Obviously I'm not too inspired right now because it's empty!)
His ears are made from a vintage sheet and they are super soft. Today I made another one, this time I made a pig pillow. I haven't had a chance to take a pic of her yet, but will post one when I get a chance. I'm hoping to perfect these little guys and add them to my future Etsy shop. (I know, I know I keep saying that!)
That's it for now. If anyone besides my sister is actually reading this, please comment and let me know what you think!
