Listen to the rain

Let it soothe your spirit. Smell the freshness. Hear the patterns. See the cleansing. The way trees and plants drink it in. Feel the renewal.

Bee happy ..... suitcase makeover

I was lucky enough to win this cute vintage suitcase on eBay a little while ago :)
 
 
The insides were in a bit of a state with peeling paper so I decided to give it a little make over to cheer it up.

 
I had this tissue paper from Paperchase so decided to use this.

 
I cut strips of the tissue paper and used Mod Podge to glue into place and then varnished over the top of the paper too for protection.




 
I love the insides of my suitcase now and smile every time I open it :)

  3. I managed to buy 2 vintage suitcases from a car boot last season, in preparation for my daughters wedding. One of them is going to become the seating plan. Your makeover was lovely.
