  1. Thank you so much for the great ideas! I have both of my grandmother’s train cases and no idea of how to display them. This definitely gave me some great ideas!

      So glad you enjoyed it, Jessika! Have fun decorating:)

  2. Hi, yes you do have alot of suitcases…it does become an addiction..doesn’t it? 😋 I just have two because I collect picnic baskets as well. I have a small house but now seeing your different ideas hmm maybe I can pick another few.. like the little travel suitcases that you put a bird nest in..thinking here..lol. I notice that you don’t paint them..I did that when the two were really scruffy looking and wanted to put them in my Shabby Chic bedroom.

      Glad you got some new ideas, Lorri! Yes, I am kind of a purist when it comes to suitcases. I love seeing their age; don’t want them to look painted and new. Good luck finding a cosmetic case; they don’t take up much room and are fun for creating a vignette!

  3. So, now I’m drooling over all of your amazing suitcases, Lora! A great collection my friend! I’m excited to tell you this post will be featured on Tuesday Turn About Link Party this week! I hope to see you at the party this week! Pinned 😊

  4. Love this! I have a few vintage suitcases myself & these are all fabulous ideas. Thanks for the inspo! Found you over at Farmhouse Friday @ Cindy’s place. Have a great day. XO- MaryJo

      Welcome, MaryJo! Glad you found your way here; Cindy is a good friend.

      Awesome; thanks, friend!

  5. Hi. I found a cool vintage suitcase with some fish painted on it. So cool for our cabin. But, the fish are on the bottom (or deep) side of the case so to use it for storage, which was my thought, it would be upside down. Any thoughts how to use??

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Hard to picture without seeing it, but could you hang it somehow? Maybe with some shelf brackets?

  6. What a wonderful post Lora, I too adore old suitcases. You have such great ways of using them.

  8. Hi Lora,
    Thank you for all the fun ways to display old suitcases. I too have collected quite a few. Love them!!!

      Glad you enjoyed them, Emilou!

  9. Thanks Lora, how do you come up with such cute ideas, you just amaze me at how creative you are. Thank you and have a blessed day, pinned.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I appreciate that, Marlene:)

  10. Wow Lora what a collection you have. I love them peeking out from under the bed, and the cameras. I have some of those too I need to try out❤️❤️ Thanks for the inspiration 💙

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, the camera collection is one I’ve been adding to for awhile!

  11. I love this post, Lora! That tiny blue case is SO adorable…I’ve never thought of styling vignettes inside of them! Such a neat idea!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad you got a new idea, Rachel!

    2. Another new idea would be to combine Idea #3 with Idea #9, so that we have a stack of briefcases at an art piece (#9), whilst having a suitcase vignette on top (#3; like the cherry on top).

      1. Lora Bloomquist says:

        Definitely! Good idea:)

  12. So many great ideas. I especially like the idea to put one under your laptop for zooms. Brilliant!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, I can whip that one out quickly for KariAnn’s zooms;)

  13. Lora,
    I loved each and everyone of your vignettes with suitcases. You have quite the collection. I loved those under the bed especially. So clever.

      Thanks, Rachel! Each one is so unique:)
