I love it, I want it, but what do I DO with it?

I love vintage luggage.  LOVE it.  But let's be honest.  If I'm travelling through Europe, I'm using my fancy new Samsonite pieces with wheels, not lugging a trunk around.  (Europe.  Ha!)

Anyway, that's no reason not to collect the wonderfully gorgeous luggage pieces from days gone by.  They also wonderful pieces of home decor, and - of course - storage.  Enjoy.

Craft storage!  Why didn't I think of that??

Gorgeous!  Fabulous dresser!!

Wow!  Talk about thinking outside the box!

How about a Louis Vuitton nightstand?

Or a suitcase end table?

Or make it a legit table with legs.  LOVE this...

Or a lamp...(more like a nightlight, but super cool nonetheless!)

What a lovely planter.  Adorable!!!

Or as a general decor element - wonderful!  (From: http://windhula.blogspot.com/)
