Easter Suitcase Vignette

March 16, 2012
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)

  6. Hi Carlene, so happy you joined me today. Did my blog come up on your roll or did you have to add it? You have some great stuff here, I love it.That has to be the cutest little vignette ever.

  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!

  8. Love your vignette. Did you paint the suitcase?? I love the look. If so, what kind of paint did you use. THANKS.

  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.

  18. So darn cute. I never would of thought of this. Love the button eggs, and your fillers. Very creative, cheery and springy. It would make me smile every time I walked by. So wanting that Chicky pillow, adorable. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best.

  19. Oh my goodness, I absolutely love this vignette! Very clever & it looks so great!

  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

  21. This is so very pretty and fresh. The bobble head chick is adorable. You have a nice touch un outting things together.

  22. Visiting from Debbie Doos! Your project is amazingly creative! I love all the inspiration.

    Thanks for sharing :)


  23. I love all the fun spring colors and how there are so many fun things to see. My favorite is the little chick pillow. I appreciate you visiting my party each week to share all your wonderful vignettes with us.

  24. I'm stopping by from Debbie-Doo's ...

    This project turned out great! Thanks so much for all the inspiration ...




  25. Adorable! I never thought of using that stuff for something like that- great inspiration!

  26. Visiting via Centsational Girl. Love all the pretty!

    Happy day, happy spring, happy happy everything!

  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!
