The Time has Come....

We move to a country town in a few days and life will never be the same! I won't have internet access for a week ...I can't believe it takes that long to reconnect in this day and this will be my last post for a couple of weeks.
I made my last visit yesterday to my 2 fave op shops, mainly to donate HEAPS of stuff and I found 2 fantastic finds and I did a little dance outside the shop!!
This gorgeous 50/60s  Airport white case  was only $5 and the inside is beautiful
I have started collecting milk glass and I found this lovely piece for only $'s always hard to find these days
I must say  the long suffering Mr VL is less than thrilled I bought these, when are finally packed up and living amongst stacks of towering boxes at the moment
I did manage to change the handles on the 1970's bedside tables told you about last week
Oblivious to the chaos!
See you in a couple of weeks

Finding Fabulous


  1. Exciting, scary, time consuming, adventurous - have a great move!

  2. Love the suitcase you found and the lining looks nice too. The glass knobs on the bedside table are beautiful!! Take care, Darlene. p.s. I collect milk glass too,

  3. The knobs look soo much better. Best of luck with your move, and I hope you enjoy country life :) See you when you have all settled in. Tam x

  4. All the best with your move. I love your finds at the op shop, two little things aren't going to make much difference to your move. :)
    Looking forward to hearing from you once you are settled.

  5. hehe you make me laugh...perfect time to start a new collection!!. both great way I could have left them behind. all the best for the move. its a stressful time but so satisfying as well. cant wait to see your touch on the new digs.....Al x

  6. I get what you mean about the internet. they can disconnect it just like that but to connect it takes so long.
    Love the milk glass. x

  7. I love the case, reminds me of the ones we got in the 70's to tote our stuff to ballet!
    Good luck with the move!

  8. The knobs are just lovely! Just what that furniture needed. A lovely bit of sparkle!

  9. Looking forward to hearing about your move/unpacking/setting up - whew!
    Loved the glass knobs and the while airplane case, so crisp and clean.

  10. Great finds! Love those glass knobs too. What a pretty kitty. Good luck on your move! I found you at Ivy and Elephants.


  11. Good luck with your move! Love your case:)

  12. Moving is never easy. I will never move again until they haul me off. That overnight case is great. Looks nice. Real deal.

  13. Good luck with your move. Hope you are back in the techno age soon. I love the case. How will you use it?

  14. Your whites are glamorous!!!Great prices--maybe all those boxes you donated will help make room for all the new you will add.

  15. I love your white case, especially with that bright, red interior. Great scalloped edge on the milk glass. Good luck with your move!

  16. Beautiful finds! Good luck with your move!

  17. Visiting from Sir Thrift A Lot. Good luck with your move. We like the same things. I like vintage luggage and milk glass, too. I think the new knobs you picked are really pretty. Take care - Dawn

  18. I love the new handles so much as well as vintage the case.
    Best wishes

  19. Best of luck with your move! The case was totally worth whatever grumbling you have to deal with. So cute!!!

  20. That train case is divine!! If you can find one with a beautiful outside AND inside, you MUST buy it. Your husband needs to be educated in this matter! :)


I love to hear from you and appreciate your messages. Meg xx
