Christmas Suitcase Becomes Winter Vignette

I envy all of you that have your Christmas decorations down already. Mine are coming down slowly as I pack things away and think about changing up my usual vignettes. I am also thinking about painting the living room before I drag everything back out. It was last painted 9 years ago, and I am ready for a change. Just thinking for right now...

In November I found a great little vintage suitcase at a local antique shop that I painted white inside and out. I was pleased with the way it turned out. Today I changed it up from a Christmas theme to a winter scene.

An oil lamp, lighted branches, vintage song book, pencil tree, skates, vintage fur baby booties, a vintage winter photograph, a bird in a crock and pinecones and grungy snowballs.

From another angle.
My mom.

I think this booties were mine.
Bird and skates.
I moved the suitcase to my entry bench. I think I'll try it there.

I hope you enjoyed my winter suitcase vignette!

  6. I love this vignette, and it looks great on the foyer bench! This has given me some inspiration, I have two vintage suitcases on top of our TV armoire and have been trying to decide how to do something new. Maybe I should open them up and do a vignette inside as you have. Not sure it is would show up good on top of the armoire tho!

    Happy New Year!
