I spotted this incredibly cool aluminum suitcase under a table, at a garage sale, a few weeks ago.
It did not smell good.
It's been sitting on the deck with cat litter inside it.
Today it has been cleaned and de-littered.
No odor anymore.
Bees wax was applied and now it is ready for our booth.
It's a bit rusty but that adds to the appeal for me.
The handle is heavy.
I think it has an industrial look.
Today Donna, The Rust Goddess (Distressed Donna Down Home), and I went thrifting.
We found this watercolor of magnolia blossoms from 1955.
The frame is original and is oak.
Thrifting alone is fine but with a fellow thrifter it is divine.
