Darling Shabby Romantic Suitcase!

Oh, I just have to share with you this darling Romantic Suitcase!  
Try as I may to leave items as sneaky white paint brush whips out and takes over! 
The old brown suitcase I found at the Pink Door Resale shop for $1.50 was no got a royal shabbyin!
I painted the suitcase with a white semi-gloss latex paint.
I thought I might leave it white until, I was so inspired by this beautiful romantic Victorian card, I found at
I just knew it was meant for my suitcase!
 The card reads 
~Loves Message~
This is so sweet and romantic to me...
I distressed the suitcase with some light sandpaper to give it a little  shabby imperfection.
It rained alot today so out came my hot glue gun and glitter and I crafted up some darling Victorian tags.
Embellished with fabric roses, glitter and vintage music paper...
I still need to add the ribbons at the top, I used all my crafty odds and ends to fluff them up!
I want to thank all of you lovely bloggers out there who are so inspiring to me!
I will be linking up with the lovely Cindy at Romantic Homes for Show and Tell Friday
the beautiful Connie at Beautiful Living
for Frou Frou Friday!
Squishy Hugs,
