Blog Party! Flea Market Style! ;)

 
 
 Over at Flea Market Style they are having their 1st ever Blog Party! You can share your favorite flea market/thrift store/yard sale find by creating a post and linking up to their post, pretty easy and a bit of fun for everyone!My favorite find is one of my vintage suitcases...I love anything vintage or antique, and have incoporated several things into my paintings. I often wonder who once owned this suitcase and where did they travel with it? Perhaps a shopping excursion in New York, or visting relatives abroad...one can only imagine!

  1. Happy Flea Market Day! I have a vintage suitcase closely resembling yours, only a smitch smaller, that I picked up at an estate sale a few years back, because it was exactly like the long-lost one of my "youte" that housed all of my doll clothes way back when. I love childhoody treasures!

  9. Vintage suitcases certainly have something about them.
    Modern day suitcase don't have any character about them at all. I love your vintage suitcase and the way that you have captured it in your painting. XXXX
