What's In Your Suitcase?

I've been having fun at the auctions again. Lots of fun. Suitcases full! Isn't this vintage leather suitcase fabulous?! What could be hiding inside?
Oh my! Vintage Christmas. Boxes and boxes.
Be still my beating heart. I didn't win every lot I bid on but I did get quite a few. Big ones, tiny ones, huge ones...
Naturally I am also in love with the old boxes.
Finally I managed to find some mercury glass bead sprays. Yippee!!!! There were a bunch of Xmas corsages as well.
Oh what fun! The suitcase itself totally rocked but filled as it is makes it an even better treat. Would you believe this isn't all I picked up? There are still boxes and bags to unwrap but I really did need to spend some time setting up the holiday decorations in the house. Of course now I have a bunch more ornaments to use...

Here's more proof that I really need to go to an auction! It looks like you've found a lifetime supply of ornaments! I keep breaking mine as I decorate the tree. Can't wait to see what other treasures you found!
Happy Monday!
