Vintage Luggage

vintage suitcases magazine photo

The Patrick Cline photo accompanying today’s quote got me thinking about just how much I adore vintage luggage.  While I’m not a big fan of carrying it (I’m a roller, carry-on type of gal), stacked vintage suitcases can be repurposed to make the sweetest side tables.  I especially love them in homes with a country garden vibe or, on the opposite end of the spectrum, as a dash of vintage in a very clean lined, modern interior.  I have two I picked up at the Chelsea Flea market in Manhattan that serve as coffee table in our apartment.  One is monogrammed “DMB.”  I like to believe it belonged to Mr. Matthews in a past life…

Home again, home again, jiggedy jig….



My dear readers how I’ve missed you!  My apologies for the lack of posts last week, I tried to keep up, but it seemed I never had a spare moment!  John and I are finally home from our sunny California escape and I’m ready to collapse (hours in airports, missed flights, you know how it goes…).  While the trip itself was magical, I’m just so happy to be home and get back into the swing of things.  I have an exciting announcement to make and so very, very much to share with you.  I trust you are all out and about enjoying what’s left of summer!  Much love, Kate “the NEO-trad”
