The Versatile Suitcase

No,  I didn't trick you,  this post IS  about how versatile a vintage suitcase can!   See it on the left side of the photo?

 First I wanted to show you the new vignette in the entry.    I decided to move the wooden trough that was there into the dining room buffet so it wouldn't get dumped at the wedding reception.

A tree topped owl...who knew!

H married my suitcase to a black pedestal   (the pedestal was a $3 yard sale find)  to make me a little table to display the brides bouquet on after the wedding.

A hole was already in the top of the suitcase showing how it could be used to hold cards.....

or are only limited by your imagination.

Melissa's bouquet is so pretty,  here are some sneak peeks.....

I can't wait to show you the bride holding it....she is beautiful!   Maybe I'm just a LITTLE teeny weeny!
