A display using a suitcase at our cabin.  I store games in this suitcase for winter or rainy days.
Repurposing some old vintage brown bottles.  I tend to collect the pale aqua and pale lavender, but with this funky color that our cabin already had on the walls, the brown was a good choice.  I bought them pretty cheap.
This is a junky old pully or something.  I just liked it and currently use it to elevate the Journey frame.
Youve probably all have seen the scrabble tiles used like this before, but this is the name of our cabin, Lakeview Cottage.  Same as what is on the Waterski above the front door.
This stack of suitcases are next to my desk area and are used to house bills, files, CDs & DVDs, and office supplies I want to keep concealed.

I love vintage suitcases and old metal banker boxes.  Some of my uses for them.

If I put both suitcases facing the same direction as I'm seeing in all the photos, they slope forward. How can I correct that? Posted: 12:05 pm on June 15th

Today at the Junk Bonanza in MN, I must of seen 10-15 suitcases being walked out by new owners. A lot of what I saw was like the two brownish looking ones. Posted: 7:22 pm on September 11th
