    Hi Lora! I just picked your blog up on Pinterest while looking for ideas for vintage suitcases and Love what you create! I am trying to sell my suitcases in my booth and you have given me some wonderful tips for refreshing them and staging them. Saving, pinning, & sharing!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wonderful, Cecilia! Love vintage suitcases and making them usable for home decor! Good luck!

  2. I love this! One of these days I hope you do a full house video tour. I’d love to see it! However, you’d need to go super super super slow because I wouldn’t want to miss a thing! Or, you could just invite me over for a weekend. I’d even bring my own blow up mattress and roll up it everyday so it wouldn’t be in your way?! 😉

      Either way I have to have my whole house clean at one time, right, Cindy? Hmmm…let me think about that one;) But yes, if you ever need to get cool, a MN visit would be wonderful!

      Thanks, Marie! This suitcase just had me singing “the hills are alive”!

    You really know how to set up a wonderful vignette, i think you could almost use anything and know just what to do. You truly have a gift and i am so glad i found your blog so i can copy all you do, not that it looks the same,lol! but, i try. Thank you Lora.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      You’re too sweet, Marlene:) I’m so glad you found your way here, too! And am so happy you get inspired to beautify your surroundings!

  5. I agree, you are a genius at vignettes. I think some of it is due to you have a large choice of vintage stuff to use so that you can unify colors, add different textures, and know when to vary the heights. But without the genius…..

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Kathy:) And you know, I’m always adding to the stash;) The more options, the merrier!

    Lora, I love the look but I’m really wondering if that is material or painting on the outside. I have a few suitcases that I desperately need to do something with and that looks perfect. Thanks

  7. You are just a genius at vignettes Lora! Thanks for breaking it down into easy steps so we can get the same look!
