A belated Happy New Year post.......

Vintage embroidery from my Mother's collection on my newest vintage leather suitcase
I don't usually do a New Years post but I'm kinda glad last year is over and I'm looking forward to 2013 being a lot more positive, and filled with lots of possibilities of good things coming our way in other words a "a glass half full" attitude :-)
I can really related to these sentiments on Kate Spain's New Years post which you can read here.....and yes I'm going to try to live with the awareness that every new day is truly a gift to be savoured.

Love the messages on this poster..........

My Christmas present to myself this year was the above lidded glass jar filled with vintage cotton reels that I bought over here. I have to say it was the cotton reels that I was drawn to not really the jar but I like it anyway.
And I also caved in and bought this vintage leather suitcase which is in pretty good condition considering its age.... plus as a bonus I had the option of taking the middle suitcase in the photo below for free.

It is now full of all my Christmas decorations keeping them safe from being damaged.
The vintage embroidery shown in the first photo was meant to be a part of this post but I think it deserves a post of its own so I'll be back in a couple of days or maybe even tomorrow with some more photos of what is in that pile.
Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year and hoping that its already off to a good start for you.

Oooo I love those embroideries. Also that glass jar is pretty special. I think those words are spot on. I love your leather suitcases and how you are using them for storage. How easy to access your decorations. Mine are in the garage and quite the operation to get out and put away.
