LOOK WHAT I FOUND !!!!

I have been looking at a lot of blogs this morning( OK it is afternoon) and I just love some of the ideas I am seeing out there for organization. Using things you wouldn't normally use....and I had a thought pop into my head, I love those trios of little cardboard suitcases that you see online everywhere, but they never have exactly the look I want. Now I know I can decoupage any of them. But...I looked in my pantry and remember these little cases, but as with most of my cute things, here they sat! ( Remember this year it is DO!) I am just over the moon about these! And I already owned them! :)







Then, all of a sudden I realized these match my Banner!!!! Sue over at It's a Very Cherry World!. realized that the paper I had a sheet of to make my banner with, and a pad of paper she had bought were the same! ( Take a look at Sue's most recent post, the pad of paper is in her first photo) She got hers at Home Goods a couple of years ago. Mine was given to me by a friend, just one piece! But I saved it! LOL Well....these wonderful little suitcases are by the same company ( Lady Jayne Ltd) that made that paper pad! What are the chances of that????? Sue, I sure hope you are OK, if you are seeing this! Take a deep breath! LOL

I got these years ago at Gooseberry Patch, on (are you ready?) CLEARANCE!
So...I now have a really really cute set of these little suitcases to use in my new craft room....
I am hoping to do posts on the progress of this little room, so I can get all of your input!
I am doing the Happy Dance! :) :) :)


Also, Brenda over at Cozy Little House had this great idea using a dish drainer she found at Wal-Mart! Is this cute or what????? Perfect for all of the things that clutter my space. :)

Cute, cute, cute! I have a lot of similar things but not those. I remember seeing them in their catalog. Did you know Gooseberry Patch won't be sending out their catalog anymore? :(

Well I'm glad you thought of a fun way to use them!

I love those suitcases Sandi, and what a deal to find them on clearance. What are the odds of finding a match like this? I like the drainer idea too.
Blessings,

Such pretty little cases in the most appropriate of colors. I'm sure they will hold some great crafty supplies. Also, love Brenda's organizational style with the dish rack. Have a great weekend.

Cozy Little House said...

They do absolutely match! And what ultra cute little suitcases. I love when that happens. Shopping the house is so much fun. Thanks for showing my dish drainer file system. It's fun to embellish the plain file folders.

Don't worry, I'm not toooo jealous! I had a set of 4 pastel ones (actually dd's) and sold 3 on eBay. Should had decoupaged them! Now, where did I put the 4th one . . .

Hi Sandy! You do know Gooseberry Patch is in my back yard! I worked there for eight years! All of the desks there have dish rack file holders! So cute, I must get one! a peek please at the quilt on the wall - so our colors! The suitcases are to die for! When I worked at GBP I earned every single thing in the catalog free each year - we all did! Miss, miss the patch! All of the cameras out now that are small like mine all take about the same quality of pictures. The trick with Macro is that you have to slightly hold the button down without clicking the photo to allow the camera to shoot. If your pictures are blurry it is because there is not enough light. My house is a cave! I have to take all of my pictures on my little white shell chair on my front porch - freezing this time of year! It will be such fun to see your craft room come to life - you have the touch! E

Hi Sandy~You are swaying me to the red, blue and yellow color scheme! Your blog is always so cheery and when I saw these suitcases I gasped! Perfect for you!!! I wish I could a room in every color in my house...I love them all! Thank you for your visit and for signing up for my giveaway. I'm having a blast meeting new people and hearing from familiar names, too!
