Victoria magazine has been a primer on how to live with your special possessions and show them off to advantage. I enjoy their romantic travel and luggage themes like "Packing for a Woman's Journey", and "Sentimental Journey", and the many vignettes from its pages done inside a suitcase. How many of you have an old photo of yourself on a horse from the days of itinerant photographers or from county fairs? Is this done anymore?
A revolving display like this one is a good way to involve family in history, and to ensure that important items are not overlooked and ultimately lost to generations. Seeing your treasures on display elicits natural curiosity for young people.
Having a few loved items at close range is a cheery way to enjoy things that may have been tucked away for a long time. The upcoming holidays seems like an opportune time to haul out an antiquated suitcase, with a romance all its own, and offer its contents for family perusal.
I hope you have an old suitcase tucked away somewhere! If not, they're not too hard to find!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Ciao! for now!
I'm linking up with Kathy at A Delightsome Life for Victoria, A Return to Loveliness. You'll want to visit over there for more Victoria beauty!
