Oh the Places he's been... Vintage Shipping Trunk come to Mumma ;)

Hello there!

Look what I found!  One of those pieces that as soon as I spied it in the store, I knew, no ifs or buts; this baby was coming home with moi!



  


Wanna hear something a little quirky or as my kids would say a little random... when I see a piece Vintage luggage goodness...  Dr Seuss's "Oh the Places you'll Go" always springs to mind.... Yep. I know weird right?! 

“Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!”  

“You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!”
~ exert from Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!



He's found a home for now in our lounge room, but I think he'd also work well in our more casual family room.  So there may be more travels in store for this handsome devil!








Do you have a thing for Vintage Luggage too? 


Sweet Vintage dreams my friends,

Jo xx


Linking up for fun here....

    Yours is perfect for a coffee table. What a terrific find.

  9. I love the color of your trunk! I have 2, both are mostly brown. One is a camel back and the other has wood slats on the top. I love them both and will never part with them. We used to use one as a coffee table, but now it serves as a bench at the foot of our bed.
    This one goes perfectly in this space!
    :)

  10. Oh she/he's beautiful. I always call my vintage she so it's hard to call him a he. Whatever it is I know one thing it's beautiful. I doubt I could have walked past that one either.
