Easter Suitcase Vignette

Somehow this post got deleted and I had to recreate it.  I had it linked to several parties, and I'm not sure if it is still linked up...

My creamy white vintage suitcase becomes an Easter vignette.

The "bones" of my vignette, an aluminum flour sifter, coffeepot, measuring cups and a strainer/collander.


A Penny McAllister chick disguised as a bunny perched in the measuring cups.




                 My button jar Easter eggs and rag balls in a collander/strainer.



A chick ticking pillow in a vintage flour sifter.


A Penny McAllister bobble head chick.


                  A vintage coffee pot with Easter Sixlets bouquet.

Prim Easter wreath.

                                                         Bird's nest and eggs.


                                                           The suitcase vignette.




          An old round aluminum grater is tucked in back.


I hope you got to see this Easter vignette!  I can't believe I accidentally deleted it!  Thanks for your patience!  (Darn ipad)

  7. What an adorable Easter vignette! I see lots of ideas that inspire me in this one. Gotta admit, though, that the sixlets candies wouldn't last long around my house - after all, they are chocolate!

  9. OH SO DARLING! SO creative to use a suitcase!! I have had all my Easter and Spring stuff pulled out and sitting in front of my fireplace for 3 weeks now, you have motivated me to get started on it since we have similar tastes.
    Off to poke around and see what other cute things you have been up to.

  20. I do love that! Love the white suitcase, I have one like it but haven't known how to decorate it. While I don't have the same items, your vignette jump starts some ideas for how I might use it for a future holiday. Thanks for sharing at Cozy Home Scenes. Hugs ~ Mary

  27. Love it! It makes me want to search around the house for treasures that I can display creatively like that! I shared it on my blog today: http://www.sister-dipity.blogspot.com/2012/03/easter-ideas.html

  28. I am following you now! That is so cute and actually something I could maybe emulate as I have some of those items. I don't have the suitcase but I never thought of using a colander or a grater etc. And I am all for using what I have on hand because I'm on a budget too! You are so inspiring!
    I see lots of "gorgeous" blogs but they spent money to buy those things to decorate. To me it is more of a challenge and more creative to use what you have and maybe just add a few new items. Beautiful job! You are my newest BFF! LOL! Happy Easter and Springtime!
