I was scrounging around the attic today looking for our suitcases for a weekend trip. My eye was caught by something I have seen up there a lot, but haven't looked at lately.
My Aunt Dot's suitcase.
We've all seen these old suitcases - my guess this one is from the 1940s, and their beautiful satin interiors. These suitcases were meant for thoughtful, sophisticated travel.
The original owners of these old suitcases would probably be very alarmed at the modern, wheeled, duffelbagged nature of the ones we have today.
I like the silky elegance of Aunt Dot's suitcase.
I sent these pictures to Sammy, because of course anything has a possible use in the upcoming wedding. I wonder if this will make it into the decor.
Oh, and I had forgotten what Aunt Dot's initials spelled out....
