Thrifty Farmhouse Thursday

 Vintage Luggage Love
 I found these two vintage suitcases on separate occassions but they go together quite nicely, don't you think? 

I'm pretty much in love with them, and their price. Seems I'm not the only one. I've been finding such great bargains I can't bear to take the price tag off, lest I forget what I paid for my thrifting finds. The Artist is getting a little tired of them though; can't say as I blame him.

I'll be storing all of our cd's in these, hopefully they'll fit. I've suddenly reached the age where displaying my musical tastes holds little appeal to my decorating style. Right now they're stacked on the floor in our family room and that appeals to my decorating style even less.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 I'm considering do a linky for Thursday thrift finds; whether they're vintage, new, something you found yesterday or twenty years ago; I would be interested to see the treasures you've found.  Please let me know if you're interested and I'll set it up for an upcoming Thursday, with notice.


 ~Be well friends~

Oooh! If I can figure out how to do the linky thing, I would participate :)
I love old suitcases. I have the ones my Papa used when he was in the Army. I store books and old photo albums in them. And our cats lounge them, too! We have more and more in common each day!
And....I LOVE to leave the price tags on thrifty finds! I have drawers full of old vintage linens with those little sticky tags on each of them..25 cents, 50 cents...I will show anyone who is willing to indulge me! My kitties are such a good audience!!

Great finds, Andrea. Your floors in the photo are making me swoon, however. Gorgeous. I would love to participate.

Gee, I've yet to try a linky party but you inspire me with your fun finds. I feel better knowing that I'm not the only one to leave prices on for quite a while... I only make sure to pull 'em off before my kids go out to a special party in their (cheap) thrifted designer clothes! ;-0 The "treasures" in my house can keep their tags! I have old suitcases above my kitchen cabinets that hold seasonal kitchen decor. My 3 yo is very confused, my hubby thinks I'm nuts, but I love 'em! I'll be back for more inspiration soon!
hugs,
Leslie

Hi Andrea!
Your vintage luggage finds are great. I'm glad I'm not the only one who leaves the pricetags on my flea market finds - LOL! The Thursday vintage finds linky sounds fun.

The suitcases are great and I think it's a wonderful idea to store your cd's in them. I love the kitty even more. :o)

Great suitcases! I'd love to find a few of those.

The same thing happened to me with regards to CDs. I used to display all of our CDs in a big rack when we were young. Then, they got moved to a small bookcase in the hall. Now, they're in a cardboard box in our bedroom closet! I usually have a small stack that I am currently listening to in the kitchen, and the rest are out of sight. No need to clutter up the view, my house is messy enough as it is with toys strewn about. :)

Thursday vintage finds link party sounds like loads of fun! And a good reason to go thrifting (like I need an excuse! lol). I love your vintage suitcases, and of course, the sweet kitty ♥
