Shabby Rose Cottage
I am joining Cindy at Romantic Homes Show and Tell Friday http://romantichome.blogspot.com/.  I love old suitcases. I picked up this vintage samsonite suitcase and painted it white, decopauged roses on the outside and then rubbed it over with stain to soften the white paint.
This one turned out rather sweet. In fact the more I look at it the more I think a little romantic vacation might be nice...
What would one pack in such a pretty suitcase? For me...something pretty and comfortable....
I think I need to sit down put my feet up and have a nice cup of french vanilla coffee in my favorite rose coffee cup and dream about where I might go...


If I am dreaming, I might as well dream big right.... beautiful Paris, France!
Wow! I feel more relaxed already and all I had to do was take a moment to dream...
Sometimes when the house is quiet I look around and think this is beautiful, right where I am at!
I hope this pretty little suitcase inspires you to do a little dreaming or at least relax and take a quiet moment for yourself!

Please stop back by and say hi!
Thank you, Cindy, at 
Romantic Homes http://romantichome.blogspot.com/ for hosting Show and tell Friday!
Tomorow is Pink Saturday!
Hugs,
Olivia

  3. Olivia,
    I love this!! I have two old suitcases just waiting for me to find the time to do something with them. May I ask if you used a primer first and did you brush it on or use spray paint?
    You can email me with the answer if you chose to. You did a fantastic job on your! I would have to decoupage things on mine because an srtist who can paint is something I am not!
    Hugs,
    Debbie
