Thoughtful Thursdays: Thoughts!

So for today's installment of Thoughtful Thursdays.... I need your thoughts! You see, I recently acquired this darling little vintage travel case at Ocean Grove's Giant Flea Market... and I need your help. As with many antiques (anyone who's a junker knows this), I just had to have it... regardless of the fact that I had no idea what I would do with it. But it's too cute and well-made to just let it sit around as a decoration.

So... here's where you come in!

What the heck can I do with this thing? I'd love to use it as storage... but it's round... and I'm having a hard time thinking outside the box... literally! So, if you have any ideas... I'm all ears. The case measures 7.5" in diameter and 3.5" high and is nicely lined with cloth.

Thanks so much for your help!


  1. hmmm...I'm picturing a little travel vignette...vintage books, tiny airplanes, postcards...shadowbox art piece. Or maybe go the vintage nursery rhyme direction. LOVE these little suitcase finds!

  2. Joni, that would be so cool. You had me at... tiny airplanes!

  3. Turn it on it's side, drill some holes and make a little stool out of it. :)

  4. I like Joni's idea too! It's an adorable little bag - I'm so glad it found it's way to you. I just know you are going to make it into something amazing!

  5. Jen, you know that's funny... I had thought about some kind of functional furniture sort of thing. And thanks, Clytie... it was too cute to pass up!
