I am really rather partial to vintage suitcases, I think they are utterly amazing, just the mere glimpse of one transports me to dreams of a simpler life, delicious cream teas and dashing gentleman sweeping doors open for you.
Images of glorious period dramas are conjured up in my mind and romantic figures heading for romantic 'happy ever afters' on magnificent steam trains in a whirl of billowing white steam clouds.
I decided to search for my very own suitcase after many wasted hours searching and missed bidding chances on Ebay - these cases are being snapped up at a rapid rate.
I decided to head to the local auction house in Nottingham. It was the first time myself and husband had been to an auction to bid and we were terrified when it was our turn. We were lucky enough to be successful and arrived home with two rather batterd vintage suitcases.
I photographed my progress and finished fixing up the first suitcase. Kat and Richard were delighted with the outcome.
